Ok, I'm at wit's end with Wordpress. This is the fifth time I've tried installing it and it flat out is not working.
When I install it, it shows one of the themes, but the default welcome post doesn't show up and when I log in it won't let me with the username and password I set up. Am I doing something wrong?
The wp-config file is edited to match the db settings.
I'm getting very frustrated. I login with admin and my password and it says "error: invalid username".
How can it be invalid when I left it at the default which was the admin. What do I do now? I'm completely stumped.
No, I don't have a dedicated host or domain so I'm trying locally with xampp. and the username - password is not case-sensitive even the first letter of the username is not capitalized.
I have tried different test cases also like clear site cookies, cache, renaming plugin directory and theme directory one by one.
also, make changes in wp-config.php as follows:
define('WP_DEBUG', true); define('WP_ALLOW_REPAIR', true);
My MySQL settings are also correct, as per standard
define('DB_NAME', 'WP'); /** MySQL database username */ define('DB_USER', 'root'); /** MySQL database password */ define('DB_PASSWORD', ''); /** MySQL hostname */ define('DB_HOST', 'localhost'); /** Database Charset to use in creating database tables. */ define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8mb4'); /** The Database Collate type. Don't change this if in doubt. */ define('DB_COLLATE', '');
suggest me something plese.
