Why am I unable to login

What issue or error are you experiencing?

I just now downloaded and installed Local…and…I am unable to log in (wp-login). I get this message:

‘‘Unknown email address. Check again or try your username.’’

But, this is NOT an unknown email address. Local is sending me emails there right now.

Hi @margarita

If you’re having trouble logging into the WP Admin area of your site, you might try resetting your credentials or creating a new user. Here is a guide to help:


I successfully changed the password. It said. Success: Updated user 1.

But…it’s now telling me the password is incorrect.

To clarify this is for the WP-Admin login and not for your Local Application user login?

Yes, it was the WP-admin login…but it’s working now. I changed the password one more time and now it works. Not sure what was wrong before.

Okay great! Glad to hear it. Happy Developing :green_heart:
