    Have you checked with your host? They may have additional security on logins to your site.

    Have asked the question to my host but have not yet got an answer to that question.

    Did just try to login from work, the error message I get is that the

    username is invalid… Have been using this blog for 2+ years, I know my username and password

    Don’t know how WP works ‘under the hood’ but if the host recovers and old version they have of my blog, do they need to recorver something else as well, like any mySQL database?

    The user name and password info is in the database, yes.

    Have you looked in the database to see what’s there?

    “admin” is a very insecure user name – so they could well have disabled that.
