Login page just refreshes after logging in (10 posts)

    Updated to 3.3.1 today, through the admin dashboard updates feature.

    I am now unable to login to the admin panel. When I attempt to login from domain.com/wp-admin, I get the login.php page, but when I input my credentials, the page just refreshes back to the login page. Inputting an incorrect password does trigger the wrong password thing.

    Things I've tried:

    1. disabling plugins by renaming the plugin directory, and renaming all the files that subsequently caused errors for the W3 total cache plugin, and was eventually back to the login refresh issue.
    2. unzipping a virgin 3.3.1 admin directory over my existing one, and it didn't help.
    3. deleting all the w3 cache plugin stuff from my .htaccess in the domain root
    4. replacing .htaccess in domain root with a blank one (the one in wp-admin is already blank)

    Not sure where to go from here... any suggestions?

    For the record, after I submit my credentials, the site redirects to wp-admin and then bounces immediately back to wp-login.

    Anyone - client of mine having same issue. This happened once in the past - think I just had to uninstall and re-install wordpress.

    FWIW, Go Daddy hosting - are you guys also on Go Daddy?

    This was not resolved by me by anything other than just starting over. Total reinstall and restart of site. Closing just because I don't know how it would've been fixed.

    Hey all - Think I found the solution. On another post - someone mentioned that when they removed their .htaccess file, it worked again. They specifically narrowed it down to the 301 redirect.

    Long story short - check your sites URL in the DB. Mine was set (when I setup the blog) to the NON www version of the website.

    I had a web.config file (ASP site, so it does not use an .htaccess file) that was set to redirect to the www version. I also had the link to the blog going to the www version

    Solution: Log into your PHPmyadmin - go to the wp-options table - find the siteURL and make sure it jives with your redirects or URL links.

    Hope this helps.

    I suspect 'suhosin' has been enable in your server. Try to disable it. You may refer the guidelines in my blog below:-

    Akshay,

    Do you think, my website (http://sankarreddy.com/) problem is the same as you faced or different?

    I can't even get to my website or to the dashboard or FTP.
