Moved to new server, now password wont work and wp-admin becomes wp-login (4 posts)

    Just moved to a new virtual dedicated server and now when I try to login using the admin name it tells me "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page."

    I have tried the manual password change within the users database, and also the emergency.php reset. Still getting the error.

    Also, when i go to worldblogosphere.com/wp-admin and try to sign in it just reloads the page to /wp-login

    Please help! My sites are entirely down at the moment and I need to get them repaired.

    Did you edit wp-config.php properly?

    Also, if you have a new IP address for same domain flush your DNS.

    I believe I updated the wp-config file correctly.

    What is flushing the DNS? I just searched it and it looks like it does it to my computer? Are you trying to say the issue is on my computer and not the domain or install?

    Yes, I am saying it can be a local machine issue...

    DNS tells the computer what the IP address is for a domain. Your system stores this data to speed up site access.

    If on Windows, with all internet programs closed, open a cmd prompt as admin and enter:

    ipconfig/flushdns and hit enter.

    If not, review with your OS support forums or help center.
