@WP Administration folks! Please help!
The following two posts are very similar to the issue I'm experiencing but there seems to be no resolve, so I figured I'd open a new post with more details, to get the attention of someone who could possibly fix the problem, as I'm without a very important blog 4 days counting;
Hosted by 1and1.co.uk, using MySQL5.0, upgrading from 2.6.5 ==> 2.7
After upgrading from 2.6.5 ==> 2.7 successfully which is what it WP told me, I'm left with a login page that reloads each time I enter the correct username and password. And gives me error messages when enter incorrect username or password.
I go to http://www.xxx.com/wp-admin (or wp-login), enter my login credentials and the page reloads with the following url now:
And as I mentioned I get the same login page, no errors, nothing.
What I have tried before this post:
I've almost reached the end of going through every single post related to the similar issues with no luck and kind of lost as to where I go from here. In summary I've done the following;
Clearing cache, cookies, disabling firewall, different computers, different browsers, removing my plugins folder and replacing it with just a empty plugins folder, and updating and making sure my config files are correct and checking my DB urls as this site explains http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/site-url/ all with no luck.
I don't know to much about cookies but guessing that its related to this, but don't know how to fix it; using the Firefox Web Developer Toolbar, I found the following results if these are any use to anyone who may be able to resolve this problem;
The authentication cookie is being set in the response after sending the initial login request which appears to work, but is not being sent back in the subsequent request.
I tried setting the cookies manually (the ones provided in the response header) using web developer toolbar and reloading the admin page. Doing this gave me the 'Please log in again.' message which we had not been previously seeing, but had been posted about in the WP forum.
Can anyone help knowing this information? WP folks, please chime in as I have been through a lot of forum posts and not had much luck.
