    I think i'm using wp 3.5.1 as i've updated to the latest recently.
    my problem is when i attempt to login to wp via localhost/wp-login.php I get a username and password denial.
    I would like to manage wp locally.
    I copied wp from a godaddy account as well as the db. i got everything except wp dashboard thing to work
