    Hello,

    I am not able to log in to my websites's wp admin anymore. The site is http://www.mycrestedgeckos.com
    I had not logged in for a few weeks and now the system tells me that the username is unknown. I have tried "lost you password" but the system then tells me that it does not know my email address! Can anyone help?
    Thanks!
    Marc

    It happens in the case of abandoned sites and blogs, especially running on outdated software, for ex WordPress 3.1 after which you neither updated plugins or any other software on your site. Anyway, there is nothing to worry about. Just update everything.

    To begin with CLICK and see if anything happens at this link.

    Edit: I posted while the above entry was being posted. Sorry for the interruption. You may try the above and try this link.

    thanks for your posts. Unfortunately, I may be too thick or so but I still cannot login. The system tells me that it does not recognise my username, so I cannot even request a new password...

    Hi,
    I actually managed to reset everything using phpAdmin - a scarry experience if you don't really know what you're doing! Thanks for your help, I am very grateful!
