Support » Fixing WordPress » Not Found

  • Greetings,

    Someone else set up wordpress and I am here to pick up the pieces. Unfortunately the site:
    gives me the message:
    Not Found
    Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.

    I don’t know what version of wordpress I’m using.
    There is a wordpress mysql database setup.
    This site was working in the past. About a year ago, we switched hosting provider – that could have been when the issue began.
    Any ideas?

    You are using 3.0.1 and the site look functional. There are no posts and that is why you get that message.

    You need to login to post and that requires the user name and password.

    Thank you, a few more questions
    Where do I login?
    How do I find out what the username/pw is?
    It looks like there is some data in the wp_posts table in mysql and I’m not sure why it’s not picking them up

    User/password is possibly the same as you used to get into the database, other wise you need to talk to who set it up. It can be changed in the database.

    The site’s links are all back to To me it looks like it was set up with a minimum of customization and data. Once you get logged in you can better check for data.

    I’ll see if I can get the credentials – the db ones aren’t working.
    Also, at one point it did have some posts. I don’t know if they were purposefully removed, or there’s some sort of error.
    Is there anyway I can setup a new user/pw for admin access (like in the mysql db)?

    You can edit users/password in the wp-users table but make sure you have a back up before you do anything to the database.
