I have been working on a WP static website for a while and was originally going to run a blog too. After reading about multisite vs two different installs I decided to do a second clean install in a sub folder with all new DB, etc to keep the blog totally separate.
So I installed a second to a new folder with new DB, etc. Problem is .. I cannot log into the admin. It doesn't say incorrect user or pw, it just spins, reloads right back to the admin login screen. If I use an incorrect login it will say so.
I believe there is something shared from my first install (it still works fine and I can log into it, thankfully!)) that is getting in the way. I did the usual pw resets thru phpmyadmin and also the emergency.php file .. no difference. Uninstall/reinstall .. no difference.
Any ideas on what would cause an admin login problem .. BTW they both have the same user and pw though I tested changing them around and it made no difference.
