    I'm locked out of my local instance of WordPress. After reading nearly every post and trying every feasible avenue, I'm still locked out. Now I'm running two instances with the latest version all clean and ready to go.

    Since I can't log into my previous version to export the content, how can I manually export the data from 2.5 and import it into 2.6?

    Never mind.
    I created a redirect for my site.
    Apparently, the wp_options table must have the actual siteurl and home values. Meaning, they cannot be the redirect-from URL.

    If your site is: http://www.neogecko.com/NRI which redirects to http://www.neogecko.com/wordpress, then the siteurl and home values in wp_options must be http://www.neogecko.com/wordpress.
