Can't log in to wordpress admin (3 posts)

    Using my details that I set up when I installed wordpress on my domain, it won't let me in. Saying that my details are incorrect and when I try to go for lost password it says that my email address isn't even in the system.
    The username and password are exactly the same as what was sent back to me from the wordpress server after the installation was completed. I've got quite a few wordpress sites and never ran into this situation before so I am a little confused.
    Any suggestions?

    You're not running any security plugins that might tweak the WordPress login system? Or using any caching plugins? Worst case scenario, access the database and manually update your account (make sure to hash your new password!). See also http://codex.wordpress.org/Resetting_Your_Password

    Usually, it can be one of these three situations that take place when you go to the login page:

    • You don't see the login screen and your browser straightaway goes to the 404 page. (Most of the time)
    • You can view the login screen, but when you enter your login credentials, it redirects you to a 404 page. (Sometimes)
    • At other instances , your browser doesn’t load the page because it shows the page has a infinite redirect loop. (Happens to the addon domains)

    The solution would depend on the issue you are facing.
