Unable to log into wordpress after migration from shared hosting to digital ocean

March 2, 2014 3.4k views
I just completed the migration of my wordpress site to digital ocean's 1 gb plan. The DNS has finished propagating, and when I go to my site I see my maintenance plugin, but when I attempt to login to wordpress via http://mydomain.com/wp-admin, my username and password are not accepted and the login page just reloads. Any thoughts?

"Check your logs"
(As in, to see if you're trying to login to the right site/etc, check for errors)
Which logs would you recommend/where would I find those logs?
Check Apache's error logs:
sudo tail -30 /var/log/apache2/error.log
I get these errors:
