  • What happens if you click on the Login link in your sidebar? It should take you exactly to the login page: put in “admin” as user and your pw – it should work.
    Don’t overcomplicate it 🙂

    I have the same problem, and I was never given a password for wordpress. I am a new webmaster using networksolutions as my host. The host control panel has an option to add a blog, which I did, and then it gives me an option to manage the blog settings. I clicked the button and it asks me to log in… I have tried using “admin” and my network solutions login id as well, with my webmaster passwords and none of them work. My blog is located at if that is any help.

    Sorry, I am not familiar with your host’s internal setup, so I have no idea where do they send the password.

    As a “webmaster” you should delete that install and do a manual installation: it gives you the login infor during the process.
    BTW, it is always admin and WP should generate its own password. Although as I said… have no idea what has been modified by your host.

    Moshu. Thank you much. I even read the support document a few times previously that advised spending time with the sample page to become familiar with it. I still didn’t manage to notice the “login” link. I knew it was something too dumb for words. It was kind of you not to mention that.

    Much appreciated.
