Question

Why "wp-login.php" wordpress login is showing account doesn't exists

The main Issues is that I am entering the email address & password that I used in creating my WordPress site in digital Ocean but It shows that the email address & username doesn’t exist even I checked in my PhpMyAdmin “WordPress” “wp-user” and I am using the right email, username and password but still it shows that user doesn’t exist. However, I tried changing password by using “lost password” section but in that whenever I enter my username or email to get password reset link it shows user doesn’t exits, so what should I do to fix it, please help…

Hi there @newwayelegant,

What I could suggest is using the wp-cli command to create a new user.

To do that you need to SSH to your Droplet then cd into your /var/www/html folder and run:

  1. wp user create your_user your_email@example.com --role=administrator

Let me know how it goes! Regards, Bobby
