Typically in a Wordpress installation you'll have to create logins for 2 layers of administration.

  • By creating a database name, a username and password in phpMyAdmin
  • And then following the on screen set up instructions to generate your wp-config.php file.

They're easy enough to follow but you should always write down the information or keep them in a safe place.

I've saved all my Wordpress installation details in a database backup program called KeePass so I don't have to remember every password I make but I have access to them all and all I have to type to get to them is one password.
