    I have used wordpress earlier but for some stupid reason I deleted it and now I cant get it to work again. I have tried everything that I could think of.
    Here is what I did:
    1)downloaded wordpress and uploaded all the files to my FTP.
    2) changed the wp-config.php file (I tried just changing the file and running the configuration, finally it seemed to work, I didnt get the "cannot establish database connection" anymore)

    Now my website looks like this: http://kristinasyvari.planet.ee/

    When I click on "Log in" I see this this weird version (http://kristinasyvari.planet.ee/wp-login.php/) of what its supposed to look like (lhttp://www.vooshthemes.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/wordpress-login-logo-default.jpg). And when I put in the username and password(the same ones that I used while changing wp-config.php) then it gets me back to the same page as I was at. The URL ending is a bit different (http://kristinasyvari.planet.ee/kristinasyvari/wp-login.php/) but the way it looks its still the same. I cant figure out how Im supposed to log in and get to my dashboard.

    All help will be appriciated!

    Thank you!

    Are you trying to start over using WordPress from scratch, or are you trying to repair/restore the installation that you previously had?

    From scratch.

    Seems as if you have not installed properly recheck all files and folders using ftp or replace all files and folders from fresh download.

    Just a guess mind you, but I'd say either the WordPress URL or the Site Address URL found in Settings -> General aren't correct.

    When you installed WordPress this second time, did you put it in a subfolder?

    I might agree with Andrew above, ensure your URL is correct. However in your post above you said..

    "And when I put in the username and password(the same ones that I used while changing wp-config.php) then it gets me back to the same page as I was at."

    This sounds incorrect. The settings in your wp-config.php file are for your database not for your WordPress admin.

    Check this by logging into your database via PHPmyAdmin with those login credentials.

    Once in the database you can reset the admin password and username so you can log back into WordPress - http://codex.wordpress.org/Resetting_Your_Password

    and then go to the options table and check the site url and blog url settings as this might be incorrect as mentioned by Andrew. http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL

    That article above has all the info on the database stuff. If you still have an issue let me know. WordPress really is easy to use and this must be a simple error or misunderstanding somewhere. Cheers my friend :)
