  • I was recently asked to pick up the pieces for a website. I have the content but can’t seem to get to the editing pages. I am fairly new to word press and still learning. I need a little guidance.

  • I am a Board member for Vista Diablo Dolphins, and trying to gain access to our website to add information to it. The current Admin rights reside with Kyle Mueller and not forthcoming with releasing username and password. Is there anyway you can help? I am also an admin for my own company’s site:

    Whoever pays the bill at the server can gain access at the server and ultimately control who has access anywhere. So, there is the place to go if/when anyone else might seem uncooperative.

    The bill is paid by our accountant. She has no idea how to access the account (last name Hastings). Can someone send them this admin username and password?

    WordPress.ORG does not host any sites and has no access information for any self-hosted WordPress sites. If the site is hosted on WordPress.COM, you need to ask on their forums – here:

    If you are not sure which it is, what is the site URL?

    Did a bit of detective work and found that it looks like the site is self-hosted on Dreamhost – so you would need to contact them for access to the site – IF they are able and willing to do so.

    (BTW – next time, please start your own thread – this one belongs to someone else and it’s in a forum that is not relevant to your question…)

    Following up on the original query regarding taking over a wordpress site(wordpress-created).. How do I do so? I’ve read that I should download Wordrpess locally, but instructions end there.

    I’m familiar with downloading a site’s files and have already done so using filezilla. So:
    Should I make this downloaded content my root folder, then do the “5-minute install”? Or should I specify a new database, do the 5-minute install and then copy the downloaded site contents over??

    Thanks tons in advance for any help
