Local site won't accept password?

I used All-in-one Migration to migrate funkyhistory.com to my local host. I was able to use my password initially after migrating. But now the local site won’t allow me to Open site from Local and login with my password. My password is set up through LASTPASS. When attempting to log on I get " Error: The username name is not registered on this site. If you are unsure of your username, try your email address instead.

Fixed it by deleting my Local sites and starting over. I hadn’t realized the I had to use my imported live site username and password – then change my password:
