    Is this a wordpress.com site or a self-hosted WordPress install?

    Yes I know. But I still can't login. Try http://www.guitarrailway.com/wp-admin/ . It's not working for some reason. Even some pages in my website isn't inaccessible.

    Try re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    Well, if you've just lost your password. All you really need to do is open up your phpmyadmin from cpanel (if your comfortable working in there) and find the (i think) wp-users table, open it up and find where you see your user account, you will see the password encrypted, click on edit and go to a md5hash generator online and type in the password you want, get the hash string and replace the old password string in your database and wah-lah, new password. Go log in to your site. Now if you have reinstalled your DB, there may be other issues such as when you backed it up, did you set the drop tables and other settings correctly, anyways, thats how you get a new pw in wordpress when all else fails, lol.

    You did back everything up first didnt you? If so then you can get it all back.

    @msnaturopath: It is impolite to interrupt another poster's ongoing thread with a question of your own. It causes significant problems for the forum's volunteers and prevents us from being able to track issues by topic. Please post your own topic.
