locked out, restore not working..

  • Moved WP (1.2.2) to a new host – same type Linux/Apache server setup, but PHP, MySQL, etc. versions may be slightly different – both PHP 4x though.

    I deleted all tables from the DB and then restored the site via PHPmyadmin with a success announcement afterward. Yea so far.

    As user passwords were with this restore, I had to use the Retreive Password routine by fishing in the DB tables and encrypting another one using MD5. Afterward though, wp-login.php takes me to a blank page though – won’t let me in.

    FWIW, this didn’t work on the old server either when we tried changing the passwords there, had very similar problems there too. Actually, on the previous server none of the 9 or 10 users could log in – it wasn’t just one of us. I didn’t check on the new install for the same level of this problem.

    Is anything else likely to be corrupted? Clicking the admin panel link just after Step 3 of the install left me hanging. Trying to login from the homepage also brought me to the wrong area.

    Thanks everyone…
