    I had started my first website and installed Wordpress on it, and it always automatically logged me in. I went to my cPanel for the site, and then I went to the normal site and for some reason it won't let me log into wordpress, it's requesting a user/pass which I never created for wordpress since I installed it through cPanel. Anyway to fix this?

    There are a few options
    1. click on the "lost your password?" link on your wp login screen and enter either your username (try admin) or your email address
    2. if you can't remember your username and/or pass then you can go into cpanel>phpmyadmin>click on your wordpress database on the left>now click on the wp_users table and you will see your username.

    From there you can either go back to your login screen and use that username to recover your pass or you can create a new MD5 hash of your password and enter it manually into your database then go back to your WP login screen and login with your new pass

    hope that helps
