  • thank you. however, i tried both of those options. they bring me to the login site and i enter “admin” as the username and the pw i was given, and i get this error message in a red box:

    You attempted to login with the username ‘admin’ on If you were trying to access your self hosted blog, try If you can’t remember your username, you can reset your password by providing your email address. If you have any questions please contact support.

    if you have a hosted blog – why are you trying to log in at
    you go to your domain name and add wp-admin to url

    i know, that’s what i’m doing but it’s sending me in circles.

    i entered what you told me to:

    and it brings me to this page:

    (i replaced my domain name with “domain” above)

    perhaps the fact that it says “redirect” is what’s funny about it?

    thanks for any further help you can provide. appreciate it very much.

    posts deleted that hijacked topic – please start your own

    who is your web host?
    who is your domain registered with?
    do you have the domain name servers pointing to your hosting account?

    Sorry about that, I did not mean to hijack the topic, just showing a similar issue. My apologies.

    ok i got it to work! thank you very much, samuel. here was the problem:

    before i bought hosting outside of, i had my domain name pointing to my blog. what i forgot to when i bought my hosting was to change the domain name servers so they pointed at my new hosting account.

    thanks again, so much, and perhaps this helps some other people too.

    samuel, you are going to swear at me aloud as you read this, but first let me say that i promise not to tweak with my account anymore after i fix this (i will leave it to the professionals).

    i thought i was being clever and changed the domain name in my wordpress admin settings to so that no one could see my page as i played around with design.

    now i can’t log in at all anymore. i get this: ERROR 404 – PAGE NOT FOUND

    i’m afraid you might tell me i’m on my own here. i already know i’m an idiot.

    Once again, THANK YOU! All fixed. Now, no more tweaking…
