    I have a new WordPress installation and database. When I try to log in to WP-Admin with name and p/w, the screen just returns to an empty log in screen. If I enter the wrong name or p/w, it shakes its head, just like it is supposed to.

    I am using the name and p/w that I entered during the installation process.

    Hi Ed McConaghay,

    I had a similar issue a few days ago with a WordPress site I just set up.
    Strangely for some reason the WordPress installation wasn't "complete" so it couldn't take me to the Dashboard after signing in. I simply deleted (dropped) the database, and reinstalled WordPress from the beginning and everything worked as it should.

    Maybe try that and see what you get. Let us know..

    You're welcome.

    And by the way, there is a WordPress forum here named "Installation" that deals with installation issues, you should've asked your question there; better for keeping forums organized.

    You may mark this question as "resolved" now.
