  • Did your host install WordPress for you? It would seem they did not. You might want to try contacting them for more information in case they gave you the wrong link for logging in.

    Ive been up all night 🙁 Trying to get the host to call me. Ive redone things over and over but not I get a 500 error when I try to login. I have definately every correct file in there. Its so confusing when I thought I was prepared.

    I can get into the database throught myphpadmin and also ftp file management on my host site domainworld. Every single thing as been asked about this issue i have tried and checked and i still cant get past login

    You need to edit your wp-config.php file to ensure that it has the correct database connection details.

    it does according to everything i have

    /** MySQL database username */
    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘**8888’);

    /** MySQL database password */
    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘******’);

    /** MySQL hostname */
    define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’);

    /** Database Charset to use in creating database tables. */
    define(‘DB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8’);

    /** The Database Collate type. Don’t change this if in doubt. */
    define(‘DB_COLLATE’, ”);

    You’ll have to access your WordPress database via phpMyAdmin (most hosting providers offer this in their control panel) and manually change the siteurl and home values to http://www.supergeek.com.au

    ok i redid that and got to the login page but when i put in my details I STILL get “opp this link appears to be broken”… I can’t get past this point and i’ve been trying for 15hours, i dont know whats wrong

    Can you quote the URL in the bar when you see the error?

    Ok so I did that thankyou very much and im at a real login page but when I put in the details the host gave me its incorrect, I try to get them sent to me but nothing is coming through

    Holy Moly I have a dashboard!!!!!!!! Thankyou sooooo much!!!
