    See this thread:

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/189015

    and this bug report:

    http://trac.wordpress.org/ticket/7322

    I tried reopening the bug ticket, but it just got closed again and I was referred back to the forums. I guess a showstopping bug that hasn't actually been resolved and completely prevents a user from using his WP installation isn't actually a bug, just a support issue.

    Same here. Attempted login just reloads the login page. Deleting cookies, etc. has no effect. My other two WordPress installs (one on the same domain) are fine.

    What is the exact error that you are getting? Or if not error, then what are you seeing after you try to log in? Did you disable all plugins before upgrading?

    Are you sure your files aren't corrupted? Tried reuploading?
    Have you checked your error logs to see anything that might give reason to why it reloads?
    Is your situation the same as Kugar, where you've recently upgraded, and to what version?
    Did you disable all plugins before upgrading?

    Also still having this issue myself, absolutely can't log in under any circumstances, any browsers, clearing cookies or not. I updated wp-config.php with the new keys, tried changing the password, tried manually creating a user - nothing works.

    No error message with the correct login, just returns me to the login screen.

    vietknight: I have the same problem and I currently have the latest version (2.6.2)

    When I enter the correct username and password, NOTHING happens. I just remain on the wp-login.php page. If I enter a wrong username or password, the error message appears.

    This happened after I moved hosting to MediaTemple . Is anyone else that has this problem on MediaTemple?

    The thing is that I have another WP install in the same account, a different domain... and I can login perfectly on that one. I moved that one exactly the same from the old hosting account too.

    There aren't any error logs, no errors, simply nothing. I have uploaded all the 2.6.2 files again, files are exactly as in the original download, nothing corrupted.

    Any ideas?

    WOW, I finally found the problem!

    open wp-login.php

    find the following 2 lines and comment them:

    if ( dirname($schema . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] . $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']) != get_option('siteurl') )
    update_option('siteurl', dirname($schema . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] . $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']) );

    This is in 2.6.2

    After commenting these lines I was able to login

    Hallo Alinush (oder ein anderer Leser),

    ich habe das selbe Problem, bin aber mit PHP und Serveradministration nicht so weit per Du, dass ich wüsste, was ich da austauschen muss. Kann mir jemand helfen?

    Danke und schöne Grüße

    Hi,

    I had the same problem with my blog (geekynomad.com version 2.6.2).

    Clearing cookies, cache etc, didn't solve anything.

    Since I still had FTP access I tried the following:

    1. via ftp rename "wp-content" > "plugins" to "1.plugins"
    2. create new dir "plugins"
    3. login to wp (which now worked for me)
    4. via ftp remove empty "plugins" created in step 2
    5. and rename "1.plugins" back to "plugins"

    For me this solved the problem.

    Best regards,

    Thomas

    I had this problem too, but interestingly enough it only happened after I didn't login for a few weeks, before that it worked perfectly fine, nothing happened after I upgraded or anything. was really confused after this, tried clearing out cookies, new password (at first I thought I really did forget it, but I didn't), editing wp-login file, nothing.

    But Thomas's method worked for me, so thanks so much!
    also, just to make sure it wasn't a fluke I logged out and back in again and it was working just fine, so if nothing else worked yet, try this! just remember to reactivate any plugins you had before, or you'll get errors

    hi,

    same problem here :
    i just uploaded to v2.6.2 and i can't log in anymore!
    when i try to, i come back to the login page...

    i tried both solutions exposed here, but none worked.
    i followed the codex to upload (disabled all plugins etc.), and it's not my first time, i don't understand why it's not working.

    please help ?

    Renaming the plug-in folder didn't work for me! Any other ideas on how to solve the problem?

    I too have this problem but with enhancements. There is so much traffic on this condition that I wonder if we don't have a 2.6.3 reinstall bug here.

    My topic: (with no replies): "Upgraded, now can't login to admin AND articles missing"

    I would say that the issue described by me and posters above is not resolved.

    I ran the wp-upgrade plugin and after it upgraded eveything and logged me out, I couldn't get back in. But I followed the advice top rename the plugins directory and create a new empty plugins directory and I successfully logged in and completed the db upgrade. Thank you Thomas for figuring out the problem!

    I just encountered this bug, and the moving of the plugins folder resolved it. Terrible waste of time! Shame on WordPress.

    Wow, I never expected to be writing this addition to this thread - I just upgraded one of my blogs from 2.5 (yes, I know, should have done that a long time ago) to 2.6.5 (the recent security fix) - and encountered this exact same problem when trying to log in.

    @thomascim's solution re plugin directories solved the problem.

    Really can't believe this is still an issue. Hope it doesn't happen when 2.7 is out...

    I haven't logged in for several months. I hadn't installed any plugins recently. Today I cannot login.

    I use safari and when I goto my podcast, http://www.ryanstatespodcast.com, I get a malware warning page. I go anyway and click login. I may have forgotten my username/password combination, so I click "forgot password". But wordpress no longer recognizes my email address??? When I typed the username it said to check my email for new password, but they haven't sent me anything. I checked all old email addresses and spam folders too.

    I'd rather use a service that has customer services even if it costs a lot because I can't afford to lose literally DAYS to typical wordpress problems. Can anybody recommend something better?

    I was fine until i upgraded to 2.7. now i have this problem in a bunch of blogs. you're stuck having to upgrade b/c of all the open hole security breaches. i know b/c i was hacked. still can't figure this out.
