[resolved] 2.3.2 Update Breaks Login (8 posts)

    I've just installed the 2.3.2 update to our blog. We were on 2.3.1 previously. Now no one can log in to the blog. We get this error message:

    Internal Server Error
    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
    Please contact the server administrator, support@supportwebsite.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.
    More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

    This is repeated by all our authors and admins so it's not a local machine problem. I do not have access to the server logs so I can't take a look. Anyone else have this problem? Anyone have a solution?

    500 Internal Server errors for me often come with an .htaccess problem. Have you double checked to make sure it is still there and setup the way you had it before? Just a stab in the dark as I am not sure.

    Curses. I'm having a similar problem. Now when I try to get to /wp-admin, I get this error:

    $url, 'type' => $type ) ); return $return; } ?>
    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /[redacted]/blog/wp-admin/includes/file.php:196) in /[redacted]/blog/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 391

    I suspect the problem is coming from a plug-in I installed after my WP installation was hacked that adds password protection to the wp-admin directory via htaccess.

    Do I just delete the htaccess file for this directory? I don't know what other htaccess modifications the plugin made. Perhaps the author of the plugin can comment?

    Ugh.

    Actually, I'm not so sure my problem is with this plugin. I see that I should have read the readme and that I should have deleted all my files before installing this time around. Could this be the problem? Anyway, right now I have a useless blog. I'm still getting

    $url, 'type' => $type ) ); return $return; } ?>
    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /[redacted]/blog/wp-admin/includes/file.php:196) in /[redacted]/blog/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 391

    at /wp-admin. I'd very much appreciate any tips on how I can fix this. Else, I'll just have to roll back to the last version, if I can, or switch to another platform.

    OK, I'm now pretty confident the problem isn't with the plugin, which seems to be working fine.

    The plugin asks for a password. I enter it. It sends me to the page, but I get the above error message. Anyone know what could be the cause? How to fix it? Any help would be very much appreciated. I'm getting desperate.

    Never mind. Re-uploaded all the files, directory by directory, and that seems to have solved the issue.

    Perhaps you can mark this resolved?

    Just updated from version 2.5 to 2.6 and I can now no longer login with my beloved Opera ver 9.5!
    Login works with IE though.
    -----------------------------------------
    Found the problem. I had to delete all the cookies in the Opera browser. Now it works.
