    I do not know what happened, but my admin username has disappeared from my site. Every time I try to log in, I get an error message "Invalid Username". I clicked on "Lost your password?" and it allowed me to reset my password. Surprisingly, I still get the "Invalid Username" error message. What do I do?

    You can try using the recover password, and if you know the email I think it gives you the user name too.

    But if you don't recall the name, what you can do is login into the phpmyadmin, and go to the database for your wordpress install. Then select users and it will give you a list of all the users, including the admin accounts. Hope this helps. :)

    Thank you very much. It worked like a charm. I'm back in control again.

    I cannot login to my URL - message says invalid user name - change password, I did this but it still doesnt work - what do I do now - I have checked my admin area - and its info that I had to enter when I changed my password, but this doesnt give any clues - Am I supposed to change the password again?? Where is phpadmin I dont see this all I see is admin area.

    cheers
