Can't Log Into My Website on WordPress

Last Update: July 14, 2020

Hey wonderful WA community,

So, I have been trying to log into my website dashboard on WordPress by typing mydomain name/wp-admin but it kept saying, “The password you entered for your email address is incorrect.”

Sure, I can always access my website dashboard through Wealthy Affiliate. However, my PC in the office couldn’t access WA and I wanted to do some work on my website during my break time.

I did not change my password and I was able to access it before. I thought it has to do with my computer’s settings but then I noticed that the webpage address changed to “mydomaindotcom/wp-logmein.php.” It should be “mydomaindotcom/wp-admin.”

No wonder it says the password I entered is wrong

I also tried it on my PC at home and encountered the same problem.

Has anyone encountered the same problem? How do you log into your website on WordPress?

Most of the time I access my website through WA. But my office's computes has blocked WA so I have to log in on WordPress.

It won't let you, I've been there. WordPress is not your host platform.

I would go into the website and clear the cache in the details section. If that doesn't work complete shut the computer down, wait 10 minutes and the reboot it and see what happens. If all red fails, the is always sit support. Good luck!

They want your username not your email address. I have forgotten mine

Hi Neil,

But it says username of email address. I had no problem accessing it before using my email add. Did something change?

Thanks, Catherine.

But I want to log in without having to go through WA and I can't.
