  • I got as far as Username, password. I typed in admin I had copied the password from the previous page and pasted it into Password. I receive an ERROR: incorrect password. lost your password message. I can get no farther. Trying to send myself the message via the email option obviously doesn’t work. I did try :)

    Earlier when I installed the wordpress I got the following errors (see screen shot) but the username and password dialog boxes appeared I copied the password and hit the button, this worked bringing me to a login page

    What is the problem? Anyone

  • I googled and found a wordpress forum that suggested opening the wp-config.php and changing the $table_prefix = ‘wp_’; to $table_prefix = ‘wp1_’; then go to site address. I did this and the process went smoothly. setting up as per a new blog.

    Clearly the database had gotten confused somewhere along the process, sorted.

    I got into admin changed my password and can potter around Dashboard, ‘just like’ on the web. I look forward to following the rest of your video tutorial.

  • Nice article, thanks!
