    I have created a blog using softiculous from anhosting - and the blog is ON

    this means that all the installation was automatic and I do not remember registering at wordpress or so

    but I do not have access to the blog - at LOGIN I get a message "username does not exist" and to retrieve a password, they do not recognize my email address

    how can I retrieve / create a username and login ? - thanks for your help

    By default WordPress' user creation is disabled so you can't create a user in your case.

    If you have access to the database you might want to check the users table to identify which email you used. If you don't recognize it just change it to your email and try the retrieve password again.

    Or you can try directly editing the password by using an MD5 tool.
