    Hi. Sorry if my english is not good.
    I have this problem: i've installed wp perfectly and when de logging in screen appears i type my username and pass but the answer is: "ERROR: Invalid username."
    This make me think that the username i have to use it's not the same as my wordpress.com username. So i try the database username/pass, nothing. I try the wordpress.org username/pass, nothing again. Can anybody tell me how could i get the data i need to get into my WP??
    I've got the blog on practicadiscursiva.wordpress.com and now i want to put it on http://www.practicadiscursiva.com.ar but i can't get any access.

    Second question: how can i make my new site (on the host server) be as my actual blog? with all the articles i've allready writen.

    Thanks for the help.

    When you install WordPress it sets the default username to --> admin

    but witch one is my password now?

    Only you could know that - you chose it.

    You could try the "Lost your password" link on the login page or reset the password in the database via phpMyAdmin.

    thanks, i'll try it. I've writed my pass but doesn't work. It works on practicadiscursica.wordpress.com... but not for log in on practicadiscursiva.com.
    The thing is: how WP knows who am i if the user is not "my user" (esdrujula) but "admin"?...

    at this time i feel an absolute idiot :S

    When you installed WordPress it should have given you your password. It automatically generates one for you. It has nothing to do with your WordPress.COM blog. Have you changed your password since you installed WP?

    You're really kind, thanks for answering... i've decided to re-intall WP, in fact to erase and install the newest version. I'll pay attention to the details this time... hope it works.

    wordpress.com and your server installation HAVE NOTHING TO DO. You can't log with your wordpress.com details into your domain.
    When you install it locally/on a server, you automatically receive a name with a password. Username is "admin", case sensitive.

    And you can import posts through your blog admin panel.
