[resolved] Can't login to domain.com/wp-admin (5 posts)

    I've looked on http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress and updated the databases. I also changed my email address on both wp_options and wp_users in the db using phpmyadmin.

    I moved my blog from oldsite.com to newsite.com changed the db values as per the document above, even changed the pwd and email address and still can't log in to wp-admin. However, now that I've changes site and home values to newsite.com, I am able to interact with wp-admin. For example it recognizes the user admin however doesn't recognize the pwd. When I say lost password and for it to email it to me, it says it does and did when entering the username of admin.

    However I do not receive any emails even though i changed the emails in db wp-options and wp-users to my current email address.

    Anyone know anything about this to give me step by step instructions?

    See Resetting Your Password - try the phpMyAdmin method first.

    If you did successfully move your blog you might also want to install the http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search-and-replace/ plugin and make sure all OLD urls are replaced with NEW url.

    Also, on the Wp-admin login screen, what is wrong with the emailer? It says it sent a message to email.com but doesn't.

    Why doesn't it work, i've just spoken to my domain host and they said that is usual.

    Thanks a bunch!!
