After I created a droplet with wordpress I get authentication required which I cannot pass

Posted August 31, 2014 5.7k views

I created a droplet with 1g and requested the wordpress. When I go to the site I get white screen and window stating authentication required. I entered the user and password that was emailed to me and it does not work. I entered digital ocean ID and password and it does not work either. Am I doing anything wrong?

  • I am also experiencing this. The only other recent change that i have made to my server has been to install my ssh key. I am not sure if i may have done something during that process to cause this , but whenever I visit my domain now , i am presented with a prompt to login that isnt receptive of to any of my credentials , please advise !
