[resolved] Still Unable to Login.... (4 posts)

    Hello! Very new to wordpress here. I have wordpress installed on my new site (zackandben.com) but have been completely unable to log in.

    First problem-- do not know what my login information is. Before I began changing some things around, I could go to zackandben.com/wp_admin and see a login page. However, after following instructions here and changing my password in myPHPadmin>wp_users from a long list of numbers to something easier to remember, I can no longer access this login page. (Says "Page Not Found")

    Grrr.

    I am under the impression that my username will be admin, correct?
    Now...how the heck do i figure out my password and get that login page back?

    Thank you for your time!!!

    That "long list of numbers" was the MD5 hash of your password :-)
    You might want to change it to another MD5 hash and try again.

    You can also check the username in the database in the wp_user field (btw. it seems to be just the default "admin").

    [edit] why don't you just use:
    http://site463.mysite4now.net/zackandben/word_press/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword
    ?

    Thank you for getting back to me so quickly. I now have retrieved my password and successfully logged in for the first time last night!

    I am still wondering why I can no longer get to http://www.zackandben.com/wp_admin?

    Because your WordPress is not uploaded in the root I suppose.
