    Hi David,

    What I would do is this — Go to your cpanel login and get to the myPHPAdmin section. Once there, login to phpmyadmin and have a look at the database. Navigate to the wp_options table and make sure that the site url and home url are set to

    You may even want to download a copy of the db, do a search and replace for all the instances of and change these to

    Hopefully that helps.

    You are a star. I would never have thought of looking directly at the databases. I’m quite new to WordPress (evidently), but am reasonable familiar with IT concepts.
    The siteurl and homeurl seem to be OK in the database(s), but I’ll check the Priory900 databases 1st thing tomorrow.
    I’m still puzzled why I can’t login or change my password, though.


    All problems now solved by fixing the siteurl and homeurl values in, and then completing a remigration. Well, most problems. Others are manageable without additional help.
    As a side effect, the login password for admin was transferred as well, but I can live with that. At least I can log in.
    I very much appreciate your help, and am beginning to make sense of other replies to problems in the Forum.
    The plugin I used was WordPress Move, which is very useful as long as you enter information correctly.


    You can change the admin password (when done properly) with PHPMyAdmin (or good MySQL server tools)…

    You are another star.
    Thanks for the information.
    I can now start to read the Codex documentation with a glimmer of understanding.
