    Hello.
    I just installed the wordpress. The problem is that i can't move from the login page.
    I made the login and I keep being redirected to this page:
    http://localhost/blog/wp-login.php?redirect_to=%2Fblog%2Fwp-admin%2F

    The result is that i can't move from the login page.
    Anybody can help me?
    Thanks in advance

    Hi,

    I have exactly the same problem. Did you find a solution?

    The old site url is still saved in the database from when you were developing on your local machine.

    Check out this how-to:

    No, I checked all that, and also, I did not develop the site on a local machine but directly on the server.

    I tried some more stuff yesterday and I think I narrowed it down to a problem with the cookies. It turns out that in Firefox and IE only the wordpressuser cookie is saved, and *not* the wordpresspassword cookie! Which is probably why I am being redirected to the login page. However, in Safari, both cookies are saved, and I don't have any problems to login on the admin area. So, although I think I found the problem, I have no clue how to solve it...

    Just curious if this happens on an external machine pointed at your server?

    Sorry, I am not really clear what you mean? The server is not mine, I connect to it using SSH to install wordpress. Once installed I use a browser to administer the blog. So if that's what you mean with an external machine pointed at the server, then yes, it is :)

    Ok, if thats the case, it shouldn't be redirecting to "localhost" if the DB is correct.

    If you changed it so we couldn't see it, did you install any plugins?

    Yes, I installed plugins, but I already tried to deactivate them, and when none is active, the problem still remains. Also, the blog used to work perfectly (both in IE and FF), the problem is that I don't exactly know when it broke. It might be that the problem is not WordPress at all, but that an upgrade of FF broke it...

    Hmm.. Without a URL to see it and test it (even as an unregistered user), I don't know what else to suggest.

    Is it okay if send you those by email? (found it on your site).

    Thanks for the effort anyway!!

    Feel free to email it to me, but it may take a little bit for me to get to it.
