[resolved] Incorrect password error message when password is correct (3 posts)

    When attempting to login the message

    ERROR: The password you entered for the username admin is incorrect. Lost your password?

    is displayed. The problem began after testing the change password feature of a plugin, however I have since disabled the plugin.

    I am unable to login using the username and password of any of the users for the blog.

    I have attempted using the emergency change password script and resetting it manually in the database as described at http://codex.wordpress.org/Resetting_Your_Password

    Any help will be greatly appreciated

    Use the phpMyAdmin method described in http://codex.wordpress.org/Resetting_Your_Password. I've never seen this method not work. Before you save the password you enter make sure you select MD5 in the pulldown to the left of where you enter the new password.

    Passwords in WordPress are case sensitive, so make sure upper and lower case letters are correctly entered.

    Thanks for your response :)

    It's worked for all but one of my users which is all I need.
