Password not working even though it's correct! (1 post)

    Hello, so I'm having problems logging in. For now I have WP installed locally using WAMP. But for some reason my passwords are NOT working and I can't login. Well that's not entirely true. On my firefox browser the password was cached and for one tab I got in somehow (The same cached password stopped working).

    So I tried to add new administrators with the same passwords, and I tried to log in with them... Didn't work. I tried restarting the WAMP server, didn't work. And then I tried changing the passwords through PHPmyadmin, still didn't work!

    But then I figured the passwords were working but it wasn't redirecting me to the CP. Because when I type in the URL like this:
    http://localhost/WordPress/wp-admin/user-edit.php?user_id=2&updated=true&wp_http_referer=%2FWordPress%2Fwp-admin%2Fusers.php

    It works fine. So anyone know what's going on?
