bbPress 2.0 Import Fail – Locked Out Of WordPress Admin Panel

  • I was attempting to import bbPress 2.0 (tools –> import –> bbPress Standalone) and something bad happened. Immediately, I was locked out of WordPress and cannot log back in.

    I get “ERROR: Username Invalid.” Basically, it’s saying that my username doesn’t exist anymore.

    I think it’s because when the bbPress was migrating the forum usernames, it caused an overwrite in the WP-Admin usernames, because of the cookies and master keys used in bbPress. How do I reinstate my admin username?

    I have a backup file and I have myPHP via Hostgator. But I have no idea how to reinstate any of this. Please help me, I’m freaking out!

    If you picked the option to overwrite your WP users with your bbPress users, then this is exactly what happened. You’ll want to login with your admin user/pass from your bbPress 1.0 install.


    In my case that user/pass was the same. Both places it says, that the user does not exists.

    What could I do?
