Wordpress credentials are not matched


#1

Ok, I’m at wit’s end with Wordpress. This is the fifth time I’ve tried installing it and it flat out is not working. When I install it shows one of the themes, but the default welcome post doesn’t show up and when I log in it won’t let me with the username and password I set up. Am I doing something wrong? The wp-config file is edited to match the db settings. I’m getting very frustrated.
I login with admin and my password and it says “error: invalid username”. How can it be invalid when I left it at the default which was the admin. What do I do now? I’m completely stumped.
Please, I’m getting desperate. Someone has to have the answers.
