    A similar thing happened to me and if I remember rightly, I didn't have https at the beginning of my login URL but the old http.
    Try that. Might work.

    ok, log into your phpmyadmin in your cpanel then go to the table wp_options , find your site url and home url starting with https, edit it and change that back to http .

    This should solve the problem.

      You will find a few databases in your phpMyAdmin. You need to choose the WordPress database. You should recognise the name... it is the one you specified when you created the site.

      Also can you describe the symptoms. Can you load /wp-login.php?
      If so what happens when you submit your credentials?

    Hi Ive found the tables in myphpadmin I have to go though cpanel to get into myphpadmin and yeah I found the tables but I cannot see where I have to go to change the url back to http I just see load of stuff I dont really know anything about.

    And the symptoms are just this.. after I bought a SSL cert I downloaded a plugin that changed all my pages to https I then went to the login page the detail where still pre populated to be honest Im not even sure what the password is I havent entered it for over a year its just pre populated but I click login and the page loads up and just stays on the the login page, If I manually take out the `s` from the end of the https url and click login again the page loads up but goes right back to the login page witht he `s` placed back on the end of the url

      Remove that plugin from the file manager of your host then try to login from http version of your site.
