[resolved] Log in error (4 posts)

    Hi Hope someone can point me in the right direction please.

    When I enter my website URL into my search engine with the wp-admin added I am taken to the log in screen. However, when I enter my username and password instead of being taken to the dashboard I am taken to an error page for my site. I am actually logged in OK for if I select either Most Used sites and select Dashboard or enter the URL for wp-admin but add index.php after trying to log in I am taken to the Dashboard.

    I have also noticed that when I click on login having entered the correct u/n and Password the URL in the search engine changes to http://eac.eu.com/newsite/http:/eac.eu.com/newsite/http:/eac.eu.com/newsite/wp-admin/ instead of http://eac.eu.com/newsite/wp-admin which takes me to the error page.

    I activated the basic theme of Twenty Twelve and logged in and went straight to the Dashboard, but when I re-activated MAX I was again taken to the error page as before.

    Can someone help me correct this please so that I can enter my u/n and p/w and go to the Dashboard as I should.

    Many thanks all help appreciated.

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    - re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    Hi Esmi

    Thanks for trying to help.

    Yes I de-activated all plug ins - no difference. As I say above I activated Twenty Twelve theme and log in was normal straight to dashboard so that got me thinking that there was a corruption on the MAX Magazine theme files somewhere, I know not where. I have placed question on their section but have had not response as yet.

    I do not fancy your idea about re-uploading all files and folders I am bound to make a mess of that and I have spent a long time getting this site ready for the charity for the fee that charities normally pay - rewards given in heaven:-)

    Any ideas mighty One?

    I look forward to your help as you have helped before.

    Thanks again

    Since the login is fine with the 2012 theme, it would seem that the issue is in the Max Magazine theme itself. Re-uploading core files wouldn't help in this situation, so don't bother with that.

    Have you edited the theme in any way?
