    Just set my wordpress up at wolverine7.com, I can pull it up, but cannot login into my wp-admin. I never filled out anthing to creat a username or password when I downloaded wordpress are at anytime that I can remember. I typed in admin in the user space and the stayed, but I have tried every password I have ever used and nothing works. Clicked on the 'lost password' and it said it was sending a link or something to my email, but don't know what email, I only have two and nothing has come in yet. I have been working on this for several days and am really loosing my cool. Please contact me at

    You may have just been going too fast on the install. It generates an initial password on installation that you must take note of, then change on login if you wish. See the second screen shot on this link.

    If you can access the MySQL database, use the following query to set the password manually:

    UPDATE wp_users SET user_pass=md5('newpassword') WHERE user_login='admin' LIMIT 1;

    Thanks all. I can get into MySQL in hostgator but I wouldn't know where to put the abouve, UPDATE wp_users SET user_pass=md5('newpassword') WHERE user_login='admin' LIMIT 1;
    I just went back to saved doc. that I coppied of the php file that I changed, it does have my password in it. I just downloaded the woedpress 2.6.3 file again to see what would happen and I was never promped for a email or a password. I am thinking about deleting the whole thing and starting over again.

    Think I got it, watched a video phpmyadmin life saver and I went in and changed my user name and password and I was able to get into my Dashboard.

    Thanks everyone,
