    I recently created a website but am having constant troubles getting it to work. I'm hosting it through hostgator and at first I installed wordpress and registered the addon domain google could not find my site. So I got that fixed with something about propagation. But now that that's done I am trying to sign into wordpress by typing in my domain /wp-admin/ but when I try to log in I cannot. I can go on wordpress.com and sign in with the same log in details. Or go on my other site and edit it, but when I try to log in here it tells me that my user name/email address for my other site doesn't exist and when I try to log in with the same details I'm using to be signed in here it still says that the username and password doesn't exist. What is going on??

    Your hosted login detail and wordpress.com details are same?

    Well i don't what was that, but if you have install wordpress on your server, just login to your hosting account, go to PHPMyAdmin, find the database currently used for that WP installation. Find the WP-USERS table. Now you can see a row with the UserNAME you provided while WP install. in the password section type in your newpassword, and in front row, select MD5.

    Now save.... done.
