    I had this happen before on another domain but it was one i wasnt bothered about so i never bothered to figure out why.

    I try and login using the exact same detials as always and i jsut get the heart sinking 'snap' of the dialog window showing it failed.

    I hadnt logged in for about a month on this domain and suddenly this has happened.

    What should i do? The password i keep is stored in a text file so its not a case of me forgetting it. I used to copy and paste it all the time without issue so i dont see it could be a case of wrong characters.

    I tried changing thru phpmyadmin but I get: 'error -1 from storage engine' when i try and save the changes and I refresh the page and it hasnt edited anything.

    What now?

    Let's try thru ftp as suggested above...

    Ok that didn't work either.
