    I have just successfully installed wp on my site at http://artworks.amsegen.com/. But when i wanted to login the http://artworks.amsegen.com/wp-admin/ it prompts the login window. I have saved my password and username to login, it fails all the time. Not sure what else i need to do.

    Any helps would be much appreciated!

    Thanks Tara.

    I have tried many ways that your url described, but failed. It is really frustrated.
    1)The php version in my ISP: PHP Version 5.3.22
    2)MySql version in my ISP: 5.1.68
    3)Clear your browser cookies.
    4)Clear your browser cache.
    5)Installed the version: wordpress-3.5.1
    6)showed the correct code you mentioned in the wp-login.php
    $user_login = $user_data->user_login;
    7)In phpMyAdmin via cpanel edited wp_users table carefully
    updated the "user_login" and "user_pass" and under Function column selected the "MD5" for them
    8)Subdomains or Subdirectories: I have put" define( 'SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', false);"
    9)I have tried FF on mac snow leorpard and on PC, IE8, Chrome and Safari on Mac, once I called http://artworks.amsegen.com/wp-admin/, admin login small window sliding down from the top of browser said:

    • Authentication Required
    • A username and password are being requested by http://artworks.amsegen.com. The site says: "WordPress attack protection CAPTCHA. Enter username: [removed ]. After I typed the username "[removed], this message displays: "No site defined on this host. If you are the owner of this site, please check Debugging a WordPress Network for help." at http://artworks.amsegen.com/wp-admin/

    Not sure what else I need to do? I have been redoing whole process at least five times either thru automatic 5 minutes settings or manually settings by modifying the wp-config.php.

    Not sure why it is so hard to get into the admin section???

    Any further suggestion would be really appreciated!!

    You need to contact your hosting company for help. It sounds like they, like many other hosting companies, have tightened security for logins due to recent massive attacks on servers - see:


    You also just posted login info for your site (not clear if it's valid or working) - which is a potential security issue - so if and when you get access, make sure you change that user name and password. Even though I just removed the info, these forums are indexed and copied almost instantaneously, so it's likely already "out there."

    Also, if this is a multisite installation, and you've checked with your hosting company, you should probably post on the multisite forum here:

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for your suggestion. I have contacted my ISP and we tried to solve the problem. But all we found the message on the page is:
    "No site defined on this host. If you are the owner of this site, please check Debugging a WordPress Network for help."at http://artworks.amsegen.com/wp-admin/. I am so confused right now.Please please help me out!

    Much appreciate!
