Question

Wordpress /wp-admin won't allow me to login after setup

I created a droplet with one-click install Wordpress.

Worked like a charm, logging into server with ssh client, no problem. Says admin password to Wordpress at first login.

Opening my site in browser, logging into setup with admin and password. Works without a problem. Creates user. Tries to login with new user. Won’t let me. Incorrect user or password. No, it’s not.

Re-done the entire install and get the same issue every time. Just can’t access dashboard.

if the wp admin login problem is occurring after migration (importing backup file) , enter the user name and password set for the wordpress file which you have imported.

password is wrong? no its not! This 1 click block and wordpress setup is broken! 20 years experience, I have never seen anything like it. multiple installs, differant passwords, differant computers. same result. Password is incorrect, Email does not work to send password as email is not setup.

Still not fixed? Not a Noob here! This issue still persists, 1 click install. 10 hours later, destroying, creating blocks for joke. This service does not work! im doing the one click server setup with wordpress. Why can I not log in to wordpress admin? I dont choose lets encrypt as I use cloudflare. dont know what else to say but try another company else where! waste of my time… :( Also changed wordpress admin password via command line which also did not work. Error saying password is incorrect.
