[resolved] New User and Password - How Much Time? (5 posts)

    When creating a new user from the WP dashboard, how long should it take? I created a new admin user and it's been about ten minutes and when I try to log in with the new credentials it rejects the new login.

    It should be pretty much instant. When did you last check or repair your database?

    Cliff notes: Over the last week, moved four wordpress sites from a former employees personal hosting account to our corporate account. So database for site in question was copied, downloaded, uploaded and updated on Wednesday.

    Was able to use the "forgot your password" autolink to log-in and reset password. (that worked almost instantaneously)

    When I tried to create the new user with admin rights, that's not working. When I review "All users" the new user I just created is there, but it's not working.

    Check the site's error logs for clues.

    Patience is a virtue and I am not virtuous!

    Just tried it again and the new login worked. Almost an hour. Thank you for your help! I'm sure I'll be back with more ?s.
