    Everything was working find and dandy, and well... I just went to log in to create a new post and .... I CANT seem to log in.
    The log in page just keeps reloading when I click on "OK" after I have put in my username and password. I have even tried putting in a wrong password (just to bring up the - "invalid password") and it does not even do that.
    What is wrong?
    i am going to clear my cookies, and my temp files .... and see if that fixes it, or does anyone know what might be the problem?

    Anyone.. Hello??
    I need HELP, I cannot log into my admin panel. I have re-booted, turned off my firewall, deleted cookies, deleted my temp internet files, tried requesting a new password, etc ... I cannot log into my admin area. I use to before, with no problems at all.
    What could the problem be?

    I am currently using - the newest version, I recently updated to it from version - 1.01 (or something similar to that, I cannot remember)
    My friend can log-in to the admin panel just fine. I gave her my log in info, to test it out for me, to see if it was a file problem or just me. So far, I belive it is just ME! (gurr!) This is all just so frustrating :(
    Thanks for replying.
    I do not know how to log onto irc.freenode.net #wordpress ... I know IRC is a chatting thing..

    submo, I guess you are on a Mac computer, using a Mac browser. I don't know what the deal is with these browsers, but something always breaks :)
    Hope it is working for you now.

    I am not on a Mac computer.
    I am currently using Windows XP, IE for my main browser, and Mozilla sometimes.
    Humm .... Still I am unable to log-in.
    I might do a virus scan, and an ad-ware scan as well, something could be blocking me from log-ing on to my wordpress. I am still having problems with log-ing on.
    *bangs head on desk* WHY, is my computer being so mean to me!*

    This *may* help if you have access to phpmyadmin:

    I do not have access to PHPmyAdmin (though I swear I use to, my Cpanel has a empty icon, maybe that's where it origionally was located, ooh well)
    What I find werid is that my friend is able to log in under my username and password with out any problems, while when I go to log in I am unable to. The log in page keeps re-loading when I press "OK"
    Anyone else have any brainstorms on how to fix my problem?

    In my case we had to do three things: tweak some buggy code in wp-login.php (see here for details), then reset the password hash in phpMyAdmin, then clear the cookies after that. I was running Safari, though.
    Do you have the problem in both browsers you've tried?

    Yes I do have a problem using both browsers .....
    I do not have access to phpMyadmin, so I am unable to reset the password though there.
    I do have an idea that it might have something to do with my computer and its settings, I just need to spend the time to tinker around with everything.

    Have you tried the "lost your password?" e-mail? Try fixing the code in wp-login.php, then have the system send you that e-mail (resetting your password), then try the cookies/cache-clearing. Maybe that will do the trick without resorting to phpMyAdmin.

    Erm, this is a really simple answer and as such is probably wrong. (On the level of 'is the computer plugged in?')
    Just once I thought I couldn't log in to my blog and had a panic attack. Nothing worked... but that was because I had forgotten that even though I had renamed the admin file to my username, rparker, I still had to enter my name as admin on the login form.
    Ok, so this probably isn't the problem here, but imagine my idiocy in trying every trick in the book to get into a site... with the wrong login name.

    From what I'm hearing, this problem is due to the very slight variations in PHP that exist.
    PHP is not an 'off the shelf' commercial product, and webhosts can install any one of a number of PHP 'flavours'.
    There are people trying to track this down and see where this issue lies. I know this doesn't help right now, but unfortunately it does mean that there is not be a 'one size fits all' solution.

    Humm, thanks for trying everyone.
    I just cannot figure this out for the life of me. It has to do with something with my computers set ups, I swear. People are able to log into the admin panel as me, yet I cannot.
    If anyone has any other ideas, (trust me I have tried everything mentioned) just reply back, or you can email me at submodalities5@hotmail.com (I'm also on MSN)
    My website is - http://www.early-frost.org (incase anyone wants to check it out)

    I just noticed that my date was set wrong on my computer (june 4 2008) I have fixed it, though I still cannot log in correctly, though I have solved another log in problem with my site..... (I wanted to log into php/mysql thing I have installed) ...
    Will I lose all my entries if I re-install WordPress?

    Yet another update ...
    When I go to request a new password it says :
    Login:
    Password: 170947 (changed)
    Login at: http://early-frost.org/wp-login.php
    There is nothing stated in the login field. Could this have something to do with me not being able to login.
    I tried getting another friend of mine to try logging using my admin information, she is unable to. The page keeps reloading on it's own.
    If anyone is interested, you can email me or chat with me on MSN at: submodalities5@hotmail.com
    I look foward to recieving your emails.

    something is wrong with the cookies and its on both these forums and the wp installation. Other sites' login work ok.
    (somehow it happens in both...maybe Merphy law...)
    (Blog dir is not the install dir)
    Blog : FF0.8, Opera 7.51 -> Login OK
    Blog : IE6 -> No Login
    Forums : FF0.8, Opera, IE6 -> No Login
    ("Login/password combination is incorrect" even if I reset the password, clear cookies/cache)
    From the pc at work I get random results in logging in.
    I hope devs are working on that since there is a growing number of people reporting login problems and are driven away...
    I hope this "cookie-eating-bug" is squashed soon !

    One of the times I had this problem (I've ahd it thre times so far) it was due to a corrupted wp-admin/vars.php file. This file is where your login cookie is set so if it's messed up then you can't log in. It took me a week to track it down to that one file because no one ever mentioned it's importance. So I thought I'd mention it now. Try re-uploading a fresh version of that one file, and possibly of login.php, just to be sure that's not your problem.

    I've had this problem when my "siteurl" wasn't set in the options table.
    It happened every time I upgraded from an older b2 blog to a shiny new wordpress blog. When the "siteurl" option is set to "http://" the login page doesn't work properly. Setting it to the proper value cleared it all up.
    Gotta say, it was a bit of a panic when it happened the first time.

    submo, if you are still getting the e-mail with the empty login when you request a lost password e-mail, as you said here, you you sure you made the code tweak that I mentioned above, the one described at http://wordpress.org/support/3/5931#post-17? I ask because I thought that that was the fix for that particular problem.

    I did it! :)
    Problem resolved ....
    I managed to find where the link to phpMYadmin was, and I followed the directions that were on the thread that I was asked to check out origionally, that manged to do the trick. So thank you very much to - podz, litlnemo, and litlnemo for all of your help.
    Thanks again! :)

    It's not fixed for me. Help!
    I really don't want to give up on this. I completely deleted the entire install of WordPress as well as deleted the MySQL table entirely. And I STILL can't log in on a fresh install with a new table.
    Emptied cache, deleted cookies, etc. What could this possibly be???
