I am trying to install and start a blog using wordpress installed from fantastico on lunarpages.  Cannot login to admin and have tried to re-install the program from scratch to no avail. Has anyone used any of the other two programs offered by lunarpages to set up a blog?  Any advise on these other programs?  Any advise on how to get past the login issue with wordpress?
thanks

Hi rosinbag,

Have you tried uninstalling via Fantastico? See, Fantastico also adds a file that it asks you not to delete at any time that it uses as an uninstaller. Usually, when uninstalled via Fantastico, the process will go through.

Also, as a side note here, during the installation of Wordpress via Fantastico, there is an option for Fantastico to email you the installation log. I've included an example below:

Quote
An instance of WordPress was installed on http://domainname.com
Full installation path: /home/xxxxx/public_html/domainname
Public URL: http://domainname.com/
Admin URL: http://domainname.com/wp-admin/
Username: xxxxx
Password: xxxxx
MySQL database: xxxxx_wrdp1
MySQL user: xxxxx_wrdp1
Time of installation: Saturday, 17th February, 2007 @ 03:40:39 AM
DO NOT REMOVE the file named fantastico_fileslist.txt from the
 installation directory. It is used for uninstalling this application.

If you deleted the installation outside of Fantastico, try deleting it again via Fantastico to have it remove any remnant files plus the database created for it as well. Then try installing Wordpress again and email yourself the installation file for later reference.

One other note, after reading your other posts about this issue, the above suggestions might be a solution for your logon issue.

Ahh, from another computer you're able to log in? Might be a firewall issue possibly? Just a thought.

When you try to login - does it just give you a "user does not exist" message, a bad password/username message or does it throw back an error?

Hmm, very odd.  Try typing in a user name and password that you know will not work, (such as user: wordressman password: irock) and let us know what type of error it tosses back your way.
