hey all, I usually find a solution scouring the posts already here but haven't been able to fix this. So sorry if it seems an issue well over posted but the many I saw the solutions haven't worked.
I try to login and it gives me this message:
ERROR: Invalid username. Lost your password?
OK, what i've done to try fix.
I have renamed the username and I have reset the password through phpmyadmin using the MD5 security from the drop down.
I have renamed my current theme for it to default to the standard as I recently changed my theme but the blog works fine with it and you can browse it, just cant log in.
I have in addition renamed the plugins folder and put a dummy empty folder called plugins in its place in case a plugin was causing prob.
I cleared my browsers cache (chrome, FF, IE) Just says the same error, plus cookies are not enabled, they are btw.
I uploaded a new wp-login.php
I checked the site url in wp-options in the database. Correct
Really cannot find any other solutions and I still cant login. Now I know you might say just re-install it but i've had it up for 4-5 years now and there are so many posts, and styling I've done. I have a plugin backing it up but, my blog loads you can visit it fine http://visualisationmagazine.com/blogvisualthinkmap, I just can't login.
I'm asking my host for help, but thought I'd post here to see if I am missing something.
