    i do have two wordpress sites, one free @ wordpress.com and one hosted at dreamhost. i just started this blogging business recently. i was really glad that wordpress was installed unto my dreamhost site without a hitch, and i did post one message. now i can't get to either one of my blogs, i am getting wrong user id and/or wrong password. i probably don't remember what userid and/or password i used. where do i go from here? the hosting tech support at dreamhot told me via email not to bother them with 'wordpress' related question. please help. darn it! i should have known better, i should have written down the user id and the passwords for each blog. but tomorrow is another day...won't make that mistake again.

    where do i go from here?

    any ideas will be graciously accepted.

    Normally, when you setup the admin account, it emails you with the login and password. Have you checked that email account?

    Also, there should be a 'lost pasword' option when you try to login. You can enter the username and email (the first username created is 'admin')
