    When you get to the login screen on your localhost are you at a localhost url or the live server url?

    If you get a localhost url, then you should be able to login. The username and password will be the same as on the server.

    If the url changes, then that means that the url is the db are wrong. You’ll need to change all instances of the server urls to the localhost one.

    Thank you Christine

    I am at the localhost url and it does not change when I try to login but the server username and password does not work. Getting incorrect password for the username message.

    I tried to change the localhost database mysql settings back to server my sql settings which gives me a failure to connect to database on localhost.

    When you login, you don’t need to use the server username and password, you need to use your WordPress username and password. Those are 2 different things.

    The username and password to login are the same you would use to log into your admin on the live sever.

    The server info is just for connecting to the database.
