Can't log-in to admin of sub-domain after instal (2 posts)

    Hi!
    I'm relatively new to WP and have basic knowledge of MySQL, html and php.

    I've got primary domain http://www.seedmedia.co.za and in its sub folder http://www.seedcorporatemedia.co.za

    Because I'm modifying the look of the sub domain (both use same theme), I decided to do a separate instal of wp in sub domain folder by copying files across and importing recent database backup.

    I've changed the config files and wp-options to match the URL, but the trouble is that when I try login using http://www.seedcorporatemedia.co.za/wp-login.php it rejects new username and password and bounces me to wp login for main site http://www.seedmedia.co.za.

    Any pointers would be greatly appreciated!

    Re-install WordPress from scratch and do not import a database backup from the site at the root domain.
