    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 http://www.amozartfest.org/theboard if that is any help.

    @jenharlan,
    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.
