Had to reinstall Serendipity - now can't log in to software

Post by MJones » Sun Apr 25, 2021 9:36 am

Logging in no longer recognizes my username and password.
The admin link I am using is at http://lingopractico.com/blogs9y/serendipity_admin.php
Here's the history of what happened.
I went to GoDaddy.com, chose the Serendipity app and installed it OK (it seemed).
I chose a theme for the blog and made a first test entry.
I discovered that installing the app had wiped out my index.html so that my entire site was down!
Following the instructions of GoDaddy tech support, I uninstalled Serendipity and reinstated my index.html file. Then I reinstalled Serendipity, this time putting it in a subfolder, blogs9y. That worked OK.
But now I can no longer log in to the Serendipity dashboard. There is no "forgot password" or "forgot username" link.
How can I log in to the blog admin software?
I hope someone here has the answer.
Thanks.

If there is no content in the blog, delete serendipity again and try the installer once more. If the same username and password is used in the login as in the installation the login will work.

If that's no option, then you can upload a PHP file that resets the password, visit it and then login again. See viewtopic.php?f=2&t=24799.
