    Is this a wordpress.com site or a self-hosted WordPress install?

    Do you know your site’s url (address)?

    Of course.

    My site is guitarrailway.com

    Ok, that problem is solved for now. But then, here comes another problem. I can’t even access to guitarrailway.com/wp-admin right now! Gosh! I can now only access to guitarrailway.com itself but not the login page and can’t login! please help up!

    I can access http://www.guitarrailway.com/wp-login.php without any problems.

    Yes I know. But I still can’t login. Try http://www.guitarrailway.com/wp-admin/ . It’s not working for some reason. Even some pages in my website isn’t inaccessible.

    Try re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    I am now reinstalling my databases for now. Will try your solution too if that doesn’t works 🙂

    Still doesn’t work after trying your method 🙁

    I found out that, i can see every page when i’m not signed in as admin but when i sign in to admin, i cannot view any page at all including the user’s page.

    Well, if you’ve just lost your password. All you really need to do is open up your phpmyadmin from cpanel (if your comfortable working in there) and find the (i think) wp-users table, open it up and find where you see your user account, you will see the password encrypted, click on edit and go to a md5hash generator online and type in the password you want, get the hash string and replace the old password string in your database and wah-lah, new password. Go log in to your site. Now if you have reinstalled your DB, there may be other issues such as when you backed it up, did you set the drop tables and other settings correctly, anyways, thats how you get a new pw in wordpress when all else fails, lol.

    Like i said, I’ve regained my password but having other issues now. :/

    You did back everything up first didnt you? If so then you can get it all back.

    Ah, I see that your making progress. Great! Bye the way, I too am a guitar player of 7 years and while Im no master, I do play a few hours a day, everyday, lol. Its kind of like my crack, lol. Hope you get your site back up and running, I would love to check out some of your lessons.
