[resolved] Suddenly cannot log in (23 posts)

    All of a sudden (was ok yesterday) I cannot log in at all.

    I go to my normal log in page, put in my details and it just goes back to the log in page. No errors unless I try it with a fake username or password.

    I have even tried changing my password twice but no, just sits there.

    Have removed any plugins that I have put on over the past month (although as I say it worked fine yesterday) but no, nothing works I cannot get in to my own site.

    Right, thats what is happening now, the ONLY difference to my site is I have opened a community area in a subdomain (the wordpress is on the root). They are on different databases.

    It isnt just me, its other members too

    http://1stangel.co.uk is the wordpress
    http://community.1stangel.co.uk is the SMF board

    Ok this is a Firefox issue.

    Seems the latest firefox has not been storing things properly and is now deleting cookies too.

    Used Chrome and logged in fine.

    Thanks :(

    Have removed any plugins that I have put on over the past month (although as I say it worked fine yesterday) but no, nothing works I cannot get in to my own site.

    to start with, try:

    -deactivating all plugins. If the problem goes away, activate them individually to find the cause.

    If you don't have access to to your admin area, try deactivating them manually via FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    -switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific issue.

    if you could log in yesterday on firefox and not today and you log in fine with chrome then try deleting cookies and try logging in.

    Thanks govpatel, have tried that but everytime I start my computer anew firefox changes all my settings again back to default. It is a FF issue and I should have tried that first as FF has given me nothing but toruble recently

    thanks t-p it was a FF issue not wordpress

    I have tried installing and reinstalling and it just does the same. I may try Flock, I believe I tried it once before and don't remember why I gave it up

    Thank you both for your responses. I appreciate it.

    If you are familiar with database log in on server click myphpadmin and click on your database and you will see database tables scroll down and wp-users click on first icon browse and you will see your users what do you have you as.

    The ONLY other thing that I did was I tried to upgrade the voucherpress. As it is so big it wouldn't and locked the site in maintenance mode. I managed to get it out of that but it left a message saying that there was an unfinished upgrade (still there actually) So I tried uploading the new version but nothing changed and now I have tried deleting voucherpress but Im still locked out of supera dmin and now cannot log in :(

    That a bit odd where you log in from someother browser and not from FF and Flock it must some cookie problem in FF and Flock check you cookie settings options.

    Im not too bothered about the logging in bit now, I am more worried about the fact I have lost all super admin on my own site.

    I have checked the config for the multi site options, all ok
    I have checked the htaccess, all ok

    Its just me :( I am administrator on the blog but not super admin and, as I have not enabled plugins for members to see, I cannot even see them now :(

    Basically I am stuffed :(

    Does anyone know what it should say in the database, and where, to show I am superadmin? If I can change that I may be able to get back into the super panel

    Is your wordpress single use, is it set as network as super admin is only on network setup my mistake I should have asked this before.

    did you do the steps t-p suggested deactivating all plugins, go back to default theme see if you can log in.

    If you have done all this you may have to reset your password again

    Go to this url
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Resetting_Your_Password

    and scroll alway down and use myphpadmin method

    I have logged in as I have said in the previous post. I am in. I got in using IE.

    I am a superadmin on a network.

    I have just checked on another network I have and the database entries for superadmin are what mine already says in this broken one.

    So in the database it says I am admin
    in the config file all is as it should be
    the .htaccess is as it should be

    I am not bothered about logging in as I can get in on IE but there is no point if I have lost my administrative abilities. I am bothered that I am not super admin anymore and cannot find out why or how to get it back
