[closed] Cannot log in to WPMS with Google Chrome. (32 posts)

    I can't log in to WordPress multisite using Google Chrome. All other browsers work fine. There are no cookies, no history, no nothing.

    Is anyone else having this experience?

  2. Is it giving you a login loop or...?

    Yes, it's just going round and round...

    This is in a local (MAMP) environment.

    I was using Chrome when I set up the multisite, I've cleared all cookies and history. I can't log in to either the main site or any child sites using Chrome, but with any other browser it's fine.

  4. Have you flushed the whole Crhome Cache? It can be remarkably daft.

    Yes, I've flushed Chrome multiple times, deleted all cookies and browsing history repeatedly. I run dozens of websites, I do all my work in Chrome, and they're all functioning perfectly well.

    The network site I'm testing out has no custom code of mine at all yet, it's simply a couple of default WP themes (2012 and 2011).

    I simply cannot log in to WP network using Chrome.

  6. That is ... totally insane. There's no reason it would just stop working on ONE browser.

    Try re-copying the core files on your install? Like a manual re-install, only without the DB stuff.

    Try re-installing chrome..
    I have some problems with chrome that went away by doing that.

    I have, multiple times. I've deleted all its preferences etc, completely cleaned it out and reinstalled Chrome. I've deleted all history etc. (a lot easier said than done, Chrome seems to be extremely buggy in this regard). I've reinstalled WordPress core too. All of this has been done very carefully, very thoroughly and multiple times.

    Nothing works.

    Try to close all other programs including Mamp, and then reopen Mamp and restart its services..

    Did you try restart your pc?

    Look what I found, the last solution solve the problem.

    So I typed directly: http://www.yoursite.com/wp-login.php

    and I can login normaly.

    Hope this will help you.

    I've tried the various solutions mentioned, clearing history and cache, using incognito, new keys, a different ip, deleting chrome and every associated file, reinstalling chrome, ensuring the login url is clean and doesn't contain a redirect, creating a new admin-level user etc.

    The site is in a local test space (MAMP) - I've deleted the "domain" and set it up again, tried a fresh WP install etc (+ new database). No plugins running, just WP multi and the most basic of theme templates.

    All to no avail unfortunately. Very strange.

    I am having this exact problem. It started about a week ago. If I login in Chrome, any login, for about 30 minutes I cannot do anything in any browser. Then it comes back. If I blow it up like this and then access it from a remote computer (a different PC) it works. This is WP multi-site folder 3.51 on a 1and1 site. I have deactivated plugins, cleared cache, most things I can think of. However, if I start with IE, or Firefox, everything works fine. In other words, it is local to this machine, apparently, after logging in with Chrome. Right after the login, pressing login, fromn then on, nothing will come up in any browser on that site (or any other WP site of mine} for about 30 minutes. WTF?

    I've just tried logging in to my multisite with Chrome again, and I still can't. This is 3 months later...

    Yeah. Got you. I have been searching support forums for a solution to this and have not found it. I am traveling in Italy, so a little time zone problem. But anyway, I have a local setup here of the same stuff that I have on 1and1, and I am going to try to duplicate it over the next few days to see if I can make it happen on my own setup on my own computer. And if I can do that, I am sure I can find the problem and report it. More later. I am amazed I cannot find a post about the cause of the problem.

    I set up my complete 200 page WP site on my local computer wit Apache and MySQL and all, and Chome worked fine. Of course this is windows, not a remote Linux 1and1 server. The I tried accessing from my wife's computer connected to the same wireless router, and it also worked fine. So I am going to punt at this time because it is no worth my time to fool with it. I am on a long-term 1-way vacation after retirement, and if Google has no interest in waking up to the problem, heck with it. I'll just use Firefox. I'll use Chrome for the things I want it for, like the Pagerank plugin. At this time, my connection is really slow because I am so remote and on satelite at a B&B. At my next stop, if the network is more reliable, I'll look into again in a few weeks. Sorry. See my Travel France" blog, if you want. It is really a pain for me, too.

    Just to put this in perspective, for anyone else who reads this, I am going way beyond the average troubleshooting for this. When I say "another PC", I mean I am sitting in a B&B in Italy, so I spun up a windows 2008 server on Amazon Web Services in Ireland, remotely, and accessed my website in Pennsylvania on 1and1. Then I terminated the virtual server, after spending $1,25! So I have the resources to try different things, and I am eventually going to get down to a platform where this can be debugged. I need to reproduce it locally. To help me out, You can create a used on my Travel Blog http://alohacreek.com. Use Chrome to try to then log into it and report back if you have any problems. Let me know here what you find.

  24. What webhost is this on?

    I'm having the same issue, also on a MAMP environment in Chrome. I can log in to single, but not multisite. Cleared cache, restarted, et al to the above. Can log in with Safari no problem, just don't like having to run two browsers to work on one site.

    Sorry, I did not get an email to respond to the question about the webhost. It is on 1and1 Pennsylvania. As it turns out, I set it up on my own computer and did not have the problem. I am not using XAMP or anything like that. I have a stock Apache 2.2, Php 5.2.17. So that really surprised me.

    I have just tried it now, in a different location. I know this sounds a little strange, but so be it: The first time, I was in Vicchio, Italy, which is just north of Florence. The place I was in was remote, and they have satellite Internet, I think it is OpenSky. I am now in Montegabbione, which is between Florence and Rome, again very remote. However here it is ADSL, I think.

    Both systems were 1 Mbyte down, 300K up. However...

    The satellite had an average ping time of >800ms for any site, and here it is about 200ms. Common in the US is <100. I have seen it faster here, like to google. Slow is normal for a satellite. So that means that any time the website has to get a little piece of the page, it has to wait 8/10th of a second for it, and sometimes there are limits as to how many pieces a server will serve up at a time. A page can have many many pieces, and from my experience, a browser or a provider may limit the number of concurrent connections. See this link http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/chrome/XUc4eFH98Ck .

    I have had experience with this in a SAAS application where the browser waits for a page element to load (the timing viewed using for example Firebug in Firefox), or maybe 5-10 concurrently, and then loads more. What happens is that the total time for a page to load can get long, in seconds. And my feeling is that Chrome likes to wait until it gets a certain percentage of the page before showing, to give the appearance of speed when it appears on the screen, which is something else I have programmed in applications, for the user experience.

    The bottom line is that Chrome may time out before the satellite system can get enough of the page down to the browser.

    Why it does this with the login, I cannot say.

    Just my humble opinion...

    What other info do you folks have?

    Here is another interesting post with many references to the issue in Chrome. http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/chrome/XUc4eFH98Ck .

    Here is another thing to look at, settings in the registry. I tried setting it to 1 here, but no effect, meaning I was still able to log in. But you might try setting it to 10 or more and see what happens. I am a little suspect of this one because it is not tehnically in a setting for Chrome, but who knows. http://www.ehow.com/how_12169537_change-number-simultaneous-downloads-chrome.html

    Not sure how the connection number would be different when set to multisite vs single site.

    Also, the registry change is a Windows specific change. The OP and I are both on Mac.

    Thanks for the input though!

    Hmmm. Yes, well you got me there. Mac vs Windows, Chrome vs others, and single vs multi. I can't really piece that one together. The thing that amazes me is that if you search the web, which I am sure you have, you see the issue coming up a bunch of times, always more or less "can't log in with Chrome" in some random way or in some way it says "server closed connection", and you get an error code I don't remember (something like 254--might not be right) and yet Google techs do not respond with a meaningful answer. And the issue has been out there for long enought that someone should have solved it. Dunno.

    Sorry I was not able to find it, and now it does not occur for me where I am.
