Wrong password givin in install (9 posts)

    I created a mySQL database, and uploaded everything. The install went fine until I tried to log in. The password given on the last step of the install didn't work. I went to the config file, changed the prefix for the database, installed again, and got a new password, which also didn't work. When I tried to have it email the password to me, it didn't send (on either the first or second install) I had it send to two different email addresses for each install, neither worked. Anyone have any ideas?

    It sounds extremely strange... but on the net anything can happen.
    Go here: http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/
    and under PHPMYADMIN > read how to reset the password.

    Hi!

    I have the same problem. I've tried to log in with the password generated by the system and it doesn't work. I´ve asked for another password three times! and continue without working!

    Everything in the seems to be fine. The tables were created in the Data Base and I can see when the password changes as soon as I ask for another one.

    I'm very worried. Can someone help me please??

    And after following moshu's link, DO remember that username ("admin") and password are case sensitive.

    Hi!

    Thanks for your suggestions. Fist of all I'd like to make you know that I'm using my own server where I installed WordPress.

    So I followed the link moshu gave but in other way, I used MySQL Query Browser to update the password directly like this:

    UPDATE wp_users w
    SET user_pass= MD5("java") //"java" is the password
    where id=1

    the result was the password encrypted. ok?

    Then, when I try to log in at:

    http:// .../wp-loging.php

    It's still without working and it changes the page for:

    http://...//wp-admin/

    And I can't do anything else.

    I checked case sensibility and I don't know what else could be wrong. Anyone have any ideas?

    I contacted my host, he said that they did not have phpMyAdmin installed, so he refered me to an Aqua Data program. Have any of you all ever used that? I can't figure out how to set the password function to "MD5"

    Nevermind, my host is installing phpMyAdmin. Thank you all a lot for your help.

    Help,

    I am on a private managed server. I had the wordpress loaded for me, since I do not know anything about php.

    The password that the program generated for me doesn't work, I have resubmitted for a total of 4 passwords, but none of them work. Help, has anyone resolved this? I don't know much about php, so please respond in very layman-like terms.
