    I installed wp mu months ago for a friend, and now they cannot remember where to login as admin (URL) and what the admin password might be.

    Can someone point me in the correct direction?

    http://domain.tld/wp-admin

    Then use the "Lost your password?" link on the login page.

    Otherwise, decide on a new password, encrypt it with PHP's MD5-function and copy the string to the appropriate place in the database.

    If you want to go the md5 route, you can use this little tool. It will encrypt whatever you put in the box and spit out an md5 hash. I got tired of writing a script each time I needed an md5 hash of a string.

    I guess I installed something screwy. I installed the software in

    http://www.mydomain.com/blogs

    So, when I go to

    http://www.mydomain.com/blogs/wp-admin, I get

    Fatal Error
    Could Not Find Blog!
    Searched for mydomain.com/blogs/ in blog::wp_blogs table. Is that right?
    Please check that your database contains the following tables:

    * wp_blogs
    * wp_users
    * wp_usermeta
    * wp_site
    * wp_sitemeta
    * wp_sitecategories

    Same results, it is trying to redirect to a blog names 'blogs'

    I try

    http://mydomain.com/blogs/wp-admin

    It runs

    http://mydomain.com/blogs/wp-login.php?redirect_to=%2Fblogs%2Fwp-admin%2F

    then all the missing blog errors.

    Yep. Reinstall? You'll get a new admin password that way too. :D
