    I just installed a new WordPress instance at http://envyusamerica.com. I went through the install process and it said it was successful. However; I cannot access the login page. Not from the install successful page or by going to /wp-login.php . It just brings me back to the home page.

    Has anyone else experienced anything like this? I tried deleting the databases and all the files then reinstalling WordPress, but I am hitting the same problem.

  2. Who is your hosting provider? Recently a few hosts have actually blocked /wp-login.php due to some security vulnerabilities.

    See http://wordpress.org/support/topic/brute-force-attacks-and-wordpress for more info.

    It is hosted on a VPS @ GoDaddy. We have a few other wordpress sites on the same server that are not having any issues, just this brand new install.

  4. Without having access to the VPS, you're best off submitting a GoDaddy support ticket or giving them a call at (480) 505-8877. This should not be the case if it's a truly fresh installation.

    I can get to the WP log in page on the site, but it looks as though you still have a temporary URL active there.

    From your current home page, click on your RSS feed link. Then from that page, select the URL which is http:// + your IP addy + the temp URL then add /wp-admin after that.

    Once logged in, go to Settings > General and update the Site URL and Home items and Save. Then to Permalinks and just re-save.

    I upgraded my site goafrikaelectives.com to 3.5.2 and lost it. Tried re-installing wordpress and it was successful. Now I can neither access my site or the login page.cpanel
