Cannot log into Wordpress

I am unable to log into Wordpress to get to my dashboard. I have tried disabling all plugins (renamed the plugin folder to do so), but that didn't work. A tech ran a permissions fix for me, but no luck still. Help?

Hello, Thank you for your question about logging into your WordPress admin section. Sorry to hear you have lost contact with the old site. You can try editing the WordPress wp-config.php file directly. That should bring back the active site at the old URL. Best, Christopher M.
Hello, Thank you for your question about WordPress login issues. We are happy to help further but will need some additional information. When I go to your login page, it is loading. What happens when you try to login? For example are you getting a blank page, or does it load indefinitely? Have you enabled WordPress Debugging? This can provide more detailed errors for developers. If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below. Thank you, John-Paul
Are you getting any specific errors or are you getting a message that says your password is incorrect?
Hello, Thanks for the question! I did a little research on the issue and it appears to be caused by a plugin as per this . You can use our article for troubleshooting WordPress plugins, or you can refer to the suggestions in the post. I hope that helps! If you continue to have the same problem, please provide some more information on the issue so that we can continue to troubleshoot it (e.g. URL, steps to duplicate the problem, version info, plugins). Regards, Arnel C.

Hello JFog214,

I see the domain name was registered yesterday. After a domain registration, it can take up to 24 hours for that information to get around the web. What you are seeing likely just means the domain is in its propagation time frame. I can see the login screen at http://www.thisishowtobetall.com/wp-admin from here, so it may also be working for you now.

Best Regards,

Hi jpcullen70,

Thanks for posting your question. I'm sorry you were having trouble with migrating your WordPress website. I'm more than happy to assist you.

Are you still having the issues you mentioned? I checked to make sure the domain is pointed to your hosting account via the nameservers and everything seems to be in order. Keep in mind that any change to DNS can take up to 24 hours to take effect.

I was able to reach your wp-admin page without reproducing the error you are seeing. If you still need assistance please feel free to contact us.
