[resolved] Can't login to wp-admin brings me back to WP.com login instead (15 posts)

    Hi,
    I moved both of my blogs to another host along with domain names. One of the site is up and running without an issue but the other is not. I have tried to login numerous times to the wp-admin and when I click the domain.com/wp-admin it re-direct me to wp.com login page. The installation on the hosting site shows as successful and I didn't do anything different than I did with my other site. Any suggestions?

    I am about to pull my hair...help!!!

    Yes it brings me to the wordpress.com login page instead, try it and see if it works for you.

    READINGDIVA.COM/wp-admin/

    That's not a wordpress.com login page. That is the login page for your self-hosted site.

    I know it is, but on my end when I click on that link it re-directs me to wordpress.com instead of the hosted site login.

    I have clear the cookies on the browser just in case and nothing.

    Do you (or did you) have a wordpress.com account at any time? If yes, was your domain name pointed to that wordpress.com account?

    Yes, I have a wordpress.com account - but the domain was transferred to the hosting site as well. I haven't point the wordpress.com account to the hosting side though... where should I do that?

    Yes - and then wait about 72 hours to allow this change to fully propagate.

    Where do I go to point my domain to the wordpress.com account? When I login to the wordpress.com account it shows me my current readingdiva.com account that wordpress used to host and my readingdivas.wordpress.com account. I want to be able to login to my readingdiva.com/wp-admin for my readingdiva.com domain.

    Who did you register the readingdiva.com domain name with?

    I first registered it with WordPress - but then I transferred the domain from Automattic to another "registrar" and it was completed successfully as per the emails I received from both Automattic and the other Registrar.

    I'd leave it another 24 hours and then see if the move is complete.
