[resolved] User Name Not Being Recognized (5 posts)

    I cleared my cache and cookies and boy am I sorry.

    I can't log in to administer my site. I'm looking at the initial email from word press congratulating me on my account and using the user name/password combo listed therein.

    The error message I receive when I try to log in is that this user name is not recognized.

    Passwords are case-sensitive.

    You may need to resort to one of the Resetting_your_password procedures.

    Thanks, but I can't even get to resetting my password as it is messaging that my user name is invalid.

    The user name works on the wordpress site and is what was used by WP in email correspondence, but is not recognized by my site login.

    Is there a way to confirm that my user name has not been changed?

    if you look at the link Michael provided it tells you how to go in change the password using phpmyadmin.

    The username is plainly visible within the databse if you follow those instructions.

    Wow, it took me a while to address my issue, but the phpmyadmin link was ultimately very helpful. Many thanks for your time and attention!
