Another Cookie/Login problem (5 posts)

    Good afternoon all,

    I have been searching the forums for a solution and cannot seem to find one that fits my problem, so, sorry if this has been solved for others.

    I just installed WP 2.3.3 on my host server, got the install script to run fine, created my SQL DB and login, and got my randomly generated pword.

    On attempt to login, I get the message:

    ERROR: WordPress requires Cookies but your browser does not support them or they are blocked.

    Clearly, I fiddled with IE's cookie settings as well as tried firefox and neither worked.

    I have been through the Codex suggestions as well and not had much luck. I have no plugins installed, and the login file is not corrupted.

    // ** MySQL settings ** //
    define('DB_NAME', 'dwinches_wp'); // The name of the database
    define('DB_USER', 'dwinches_1'); // Your MySQL username
    define('DB_PASSWORD', 'xxxxxxx'); // ...and password
    define('DB_HOST', 'localhost'); // 99% chance you won't need to change this value
    define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');
    define('DB_COLLATE', '');

    Thanks for any assistance

    UPDATE:

    I did note that someone filed a comment under the "hello world" default post and was then able to login. When I tried to do this, the script kicked me out and displayed my index.html page that is sitting in my root directory.

    I did have the WP install to root, perhaps it needs to be in a subdir? Can I just move all the files to a subdir? I am guessing that the tables in the DB will probably not work then and I really should do a fresh install.

    It turns out that the hosts I am using (110mb.com) has a web based file manager that allows editing and apparently it adds a new set of <html><header> etc. tags resulting in php files that generate blank pages.

    I edited the config.php on my own computer and then reuploaded and re-ran the installer and now things are working.

    Thanks!

    I am having what I think is the same problem. For some reason I can no longer log into my admin area, I get the following messages:

    This when I try and log in directly to my admin page
    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/******/public_html/wp-content/themes/beautiful-sunrise-10/functions.php:72) in /home/******/public_html/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 390

    and this when I try and log in my admin page via my blog
    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/******/public_html/wp-content/themes/beautiful-sunrise-10/functions.php:72) in /home/******/public_html/wp-login.php on line 12

    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/*****/public_html/wp-content/themes/beautiful-sunrise-10/functions.php:72) in /home/******/public_html/wp-login.php on line 24

    When I put in my login details I get the following
    ERROR: WordPress requires Cookies but your browser does not support them or they are blocked.

    I have cookies enabled (firefox) and they are working okay for other sites. I am not a programmer so am at a loss as to what is happening. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I fixed my problem. It was caused by my wordpress cockies dissapearing (one of my cleaning programs must have deleted them). I did have to reinstall and then import my data base back again though.
