    I recently migrated my WP site/database to a new host, and now can't login to the WP admin panel.
    I've tried resetting the password via MySQLadmin like this: http://codex.wordpress.org/Resetting_Your_Password

    But I still cant get in, nor get an email sent top reset the password.
    Anyone else have this issue? any help would be greatly appreciated.

    What happens when you try to log in?
    What exactly did you change in the database?

    basically nothing happens when I try to log in, not even an error message. I tried manually changing the password under "wp_user" in the database per the instructions in the link above.

    basically my homepage works, but interior pages do not...similar to the issue in this thread:

    which makes me think its a permalink issue?

    found it. It was a permalink issue.

    To fix I went into mySQL admin and into wp_options>permalink_structure.
    Then I deleted permalink structure completely, and updated the URL's under "siteurl."
