Question

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

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?
