PLEASE! How did you fix this? I've been pulling my hair out all day and have done three installs trying to resolve this.
Very similar situation. I deleted the .htaccess file. Apache, PHP 5+, Linux, MySQL. WordPress 2.8.4.
Help! Thank you.
PS - I should add, I didn't have this problem before today. I had to move the blog to another server, same url. (The other blog I did these same steps with did not give me the same problems.)
First I did a new install of WP through godaddy's hosting control panel. I could log in fine. Then I put a copy of all the original files up, using the 'new' config file referencing the new database file. Then I restored the database. I get that same cookies are blocked error, but they are not, and the settings on the browsers are not set to block.
I have cleared browsers and caches repeatedly, both IE and FF. I copied in a new fresh login.php file this time and the last time also.
I double checked the config file and it definitely references the new database. I don't have a clue where my problem is, but I HAVE to get into the admin!
This is making me a nervous wreck, because the last time it took hours for the interior pages to populate, so there was the worry that something was very wrong. This time the same thing, the interior links are showing up 404 still.
Thank you very much to anyone who can help me out of this jam.
