  • Hi, I can’t log in to my database at:

    I’m pretty sure I have my username and password correct: forgive me if I’m being a dunce but I forgot them a while ago to get on to these forums and you sent me an email out with them in – I assume that they *aren’t* the same username and password for my database?

    Any help would be much appreciated :/

    No emails are sent from here for your blog.
    For your blog, does the Lost password feature not work ?

    Nope. When I type in my username (kopperdrake) and email (which can be only one of 2 that I have) it just says “Sorry, that user does not seem to exist in our database. Perhaps you have the wrong username or e-mail address?”

    Is there any way I can retrieve this information in case I’ve just been *really* stupid and used something more obscure than I normally do?

    kopperdrake, you mean you cannot login here?

    That’s not your “database”, that’s your blog! And it cannot have username kopperdrake, it should be admin + password.
    Just want to clarify what are we talking about…

    Check your wp-config.php file in the wordpress’ root directory. It contains all information you need:
    Login to your server, open wordpress root directory, and find wp-config.php:

    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘your-database); // The name of the database
    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘your database username’); // Your MySQL username
    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘your database password’); // …and password
    hope this helps

    Gah!! I knew it <holds head in shame> :/

    I’d transferred servers and they gave me a username and password (as moshu rightly pointed out) I can’t change which is some random bunch of letters and numbers – of course I forgot this also affected my blog!

    Live and learn eh? Good job I don’t do this for a living 😀

    Thanks guys – much appreciated 😀
