    Hello,
    I have a website build on WP 3.4 but now its upgraded to latest version. The problem i am facing is that when i login with my credentials it returns me to same login screen (without saying wrong password) every time i have to choose forget password to get in.once i logout same cycle had to be repeated again.its very frustrating. any idea why is it happening and how to fix it?

    Navigate to wp-content directory in a FTP client or cPanel file manager and rename plugins directory to something like plugins-temp. This will deactivate all plugins. See if dashboard login works.

    If that doesn't help, check the contents of .htaccess file in root and ensure that there are no rules causing this. If you are unsure, copy all its contents and replace with standard default one which can be found at http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks#Creating_and_editing_.28.htaccess.29
