i have had this wordpress blog for YEARS… and i even upgraded it a while ago. i was also hacked with the redirecting scripts hack.. about two weeks ago.. and i cleaned it up.. then changed my password.
so going to log in today, and wordpress tells me my password is incorrect. giving it the benefit of the doubt, even though i KNOW what i set that password to, i tried doing a “lost password” recovery/reset. i enter my email address and i get “ERROR: Invalid username or e-mail.”
i enter the username (admin) and get “ERROR: Invalid username or e-mail.”
i googled a bit and followed some articles on how to reset the password using phpmMyAdmin
disabled plugins by renaming my plugins folder
what’s going on here?!
