    Really quite frustrated. I can not login to my site and the username I have it does not recognise and I have tried every single password possible and every single email account for password recovery. Not having a phone number to contact or online support is extremely frustrating. I am not a computer whiz I know the basics. Can someone please help.

    Is it WordPress you cannot login to, or CPanel , or some sort of admin interface for your website ?

    This explains several methods of resetting your password without logging in:

    Has anything changed since the last time you logged in ? Possibly a theme, plugin or WP update ? Sometimes people leave 'caps-lock' on, and as they can't see the password, don't realise caps is on.

    There sure are a number of posts that are related - http://wordpress.org/search/Can%27t+login?forums=1

    With CPanel, surely the username and password haven't changed ? What is the message in CPanel ?

    $200 from GoDaddy is ludricious. They should give that type of support for free.

    What is the message when you try to login to WordPress ? Have you changed the admin username, or changed a password recently ?

    PS I will email you

    If he can't access CPanel, then he can't get to the database.

    Can't log in; link to re-set password contiues to tell me "You Can't Re-Use This Pass Word." for passwords I have never used. This is the worst program!

    I am having the same problem. I cannot log in to ministryofsmallthings.wordpress.com
    I have tried my username, my email address ( I have wordpress on my phone and the email is correct I am using and I know the pw is correct.

    I have tried to set it up again and the name of ministryofsmallthings has been taken. it is deeply frustrating, my facebook, pinterest and twitter are all set up around this.

    The support I have seen here is really poor. You assume everyone is an IT expert, we're not. PLEASE give visuals as well as text instructions and keep it simple.

    Please don't insult the volunteers who take their free time to try to help out.

    If you're not satisfied with the support they give then consider paying someone:

    And you have a WordPress.com website so you need to talk to WordPress.com http://en.support.wordpress.com/

    I am at a loss as to understand why you found my comments insulting. To ask for something to be written as clearly and plainly as possible is not an insult.

    And wordpress.com support guided me here!
