    I changed my URL via goDaddy.com and now I cannot log onto my wordpress account. The username and password that I have shown on the dashboard of GoDaddy doesn't work and the old username and password don't work. Just trying to figure out how on earth i can add new content when I can't figure out how to log in again. Please help me out. Thanks.

  2. You need to be able to differentiate between GoDaddy and WordPress.

    I changed my URL via goDaddy.com

    Where exactly did you do that? In a Godaddy control panel? If so, you need to look in their help files.

    If you changed your URL in the *Wordpress* admin, then see this Changing The Site URL « WordPress Codex for recovery instructions.

    So I'm hosting my website on GoDaddy. I purchased my URL's there and it just seems easier. When I started my journey I began posting under my URL http://www.debtfreecycling.com but found that there is too much negative energy associated with debt so I decided to change my url to bamboocyclist.com I was just having it re-routed or forwarded to where the posts were being created in my first URL. I had godaddy walk me through the process of backing up wp then uninstalling it and changing the domain name then reinstalling it and restoring it but when I restored it, I can't log into my wp-admin with any combination of user names and passwords. In godaddy it says what my user name and password should be for wp but when I use those together I still cannot log in so I have a site that others can see but I cannot access. Frustrating.

  4. If you did a one-click install of WordPress at GoDaddy, then that would have told you your new WP login and password. If those don't work, then see this: Resetting Your Password « WordPress Codex.

    Your main Godaddy account login and WordPress admin login are completely different.

    One problem is that I cannot currently log on to anything wordpress related. I can't get into wordpress in order to change the login or password. I can't even get a new password because it won't accept any email address I enter for it.

    Did you change the urls in Settings General to new domain name

    if no then you will have to change them in database or use functions

    I have a video on my website to help you how reset your urls click on my name.

  7. One problem is that I cannot currently log on to anything wordpress related. I can't get into wordpress in order to change the login or password.

    What/where *exactly" are you trying to log into? Post the URLs you are trying so we can figure out what you're trying to do.

    I just clicked on the link and it does take me to your login page.

  10. See Resetting Your Password « WordPress Codex for different scenarios of presetting passwords. Your user name is not going to be an email address. And a video if you have to change it via phpmyadmin: http://www.francescolanza.com/2007/10/24/password-admin-reset/
