wp-login.php problems (11 posts)

    Hi,

    I just removed my site from /blog to the root directory. Everything seemed to work fine, the site has successfully moved (now at: http://69.89.31.52/~festtags/).
    However, I can't longer login to the admin panel. The wp-login.php does nothing, and the password-reset link works neither. I already followed the emergency password reset script posted here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/emergency-password-reset-script?replies=6 and got an email that the password has been reset, but I still can't log in.

    Does anyone have a suggestion to go on from here?

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi Greyparrot,

    thanks for the link, but I tried that already:
    * Email doesn't work, I never receive a mail
    * I'm on a PC, so I don't think I can use the MySQL-command line
    * Changing the functions.php using FileZilla didn't work either
    * As I wrote, I also tried the emergency script, through which I can reset the password, but I still can't log in with the new password.

    tl;dr I reset the password using the emergency script but still can't log in.

    Thanks a lot for your help!

    Kindly try it via "Through phpMyAdmin"

    Oh, sorry, it's still the same problem with the login screen.
    I can change the password in the MySQL database, but I can't use the new password to log in.

    Is it possible that the wp-login.php got broken by moving to root?
    The odd thing is, that even I never get any feedback (e.g. "worng password") even when I leave the user/pw fields empty.
    So I assume, the problem is not actually with the password, but with the wp-login. Is there any way to check this? Would uploading a newer version of wp-login.php change solve anything?

    Is it actually saying incorrect username or password?

    Are you editing the right database?

    Hi DJ,

    no, it's not saying/doing anything.
    I strongly assume I'm editing the right database, as it's the only wordpress database on the server and has the right user in it.

    Добрый день! Прошу помощи, я новичек, и может не в тему..
    Год назад сделала сайт, сейчас он мне нужен но я почему то, не могу зайти в админ панель, то есть не появляется окошко для логина и пароля.
    ВВожу wp-login.php и пустое окошко..
    (Напомните, а нужно ли установить вордпресс, чтоб зайти в админ панель)
    И еще не помню домен покупается навсегда, или нет? Я его купила, но не знаю нужно его снова проплачивать как хостинг. Спасибо
