WordPress not recognising admin password it was set up with.
After setup finished I attempted logging into my WP admin acount. wp-login.php page doesn’t load at all, or when it does password is “incorrect”, except it isn’t. Password is literally the same as it was during initial configuration.
Tried “restoring password” (predictably it didn’t work), rebooting vps and even deleting and creating new droplet (to be fully sure, that WP is installed correctly). Even skipped certbot step (still wasn’t working when I used it so not big loss).
I can access droplet via console though (hooray!).
What is interesting is that this issue seems to be affecting only website/droplet created after the recent “support portal "crash”.
Sometimes even the text-only default WP website won’t load or load but extremely slowly. Both issues are tested on Firefox, Chrome and Opera mobile. Wi-Fi and mobile 4G internet.
Connection quality seems to be random. Login denial is permanent.
