    Having same issue here on a clean install of a new site. Everything was working fine until I turned off permalinks, then went in and turned it back on.

    Now wehn logging in I get directed back to the main page. Will not let me in to the control panel...
    I renamed the instant upgrade plugin and still will not let me in...

    Help.

    Ok went to the admin tried to login, checked the wordpress template footer where it shows the meta login or logoff link...
    It was showing logoff. So I logged off and went back to admin and logged in and it works again...

    Use a template with a login footer, if not get one that does or add the code in. Theres no need to modify files or paths if you use this method.

    | <?php wp_loginout(); ?> |

    sorry if this was a duplicate I just read the last 2 pages on this due to the limited time I had to spend trying to fix this issue. So if this fix is a duplicate i apolagize.

    OTTO,

    WP 2.6 was working wonderfully and then out of nowhere I could not Log In anymore. I have cleared cookies in all my bowsers, cleared cache in all my bowsers, tried different browsers, reset my PW in the database with PHP MyAdmin, tried CK;s fix to the config file, tried different computers, tried both Mac and PC, called my webhost and more.

    Basically, when I Log In, I am taken back to the Log In page which is then blank. Needless to say, I can't administer the blog and I don't think people can post or register as well.

    The blog is at is http://www.michaelcoudriet.com/blog

    This was a clean install on a new site.

    Thanks in Advance,
    Michael

    i am using wordpress 2.5. i guess i'm having the same problem. it's weird: while i was writing an entry, all of the sudden, my "save/publish" area turned into a mini wp-login.php screen. then when i reloaded, i only got wp-login.php. when i try to login with the correct username and password, i get spit back onto wp-login.php. if i use an incorrect password, i get "error: incorrect password." however, when i use the right password, i just end up back where i started. i can't access any controls. i tried using the comment method; nothing.

    a few days ago, i started a thread on these forums: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/193991?replies=4

    Guys - I have tried everything on this forum and the kitchen sink - nothing as worked. It seems I have to abandon my blog. WP needs to take this situation in hand as a matter of priority

    After upgrading to 2.6 from 2.5.? I can't get into the admin. The blog is up-and-running, but I can't do anything to it. I tried all fixes I could find on this support site, but nothing works.

    For the record, here's how I fixed my problem: I changed the name of my plugins folder to plugins2, tried to login again, it said my database needed an update, I said OK, then I renamed the plugins folder back. Everything working fine now. Not sure if this will work for anyone else, but worth a shot....

    I just tried the above fix and it did not work for me. I guess my problem is not plug-in related.

    Update...

    After I try to login, I see that the browser is trying to go here: http://www.biggergolfers.com/wp-admin/upgrade.php?_wp_http_referer=%2Fwp-admin%2F

    ....but then it fails and gets sent back to the main login again. I deleted the plugins, but no effect.

    Thanks.

    I don't know anything about code or much else for that matter, but this is what worked to solve the login problwm for me. Maybe you guys can figure out how it worked.
    I used automatic upgrade to upgrade to 2.6. When it was all finished it took me to the admin login page, and I could not log in. Cleared the cookies, restarted, several times, that did not work. I may not know much, but I do know how to clear cookies. Anyway, I opened my public home page and tried to log in - no deal. But, I noticed the admin log-out button was visible, meaning I was still logged in from before the upgrade even though I could not get back to the admin pages. I clicked that button to log out, and then was able to log back in.

    WP needs to take this situation in hand as a matter of priority

    Let's make something very, very clear here.
    YOU are responsible for your blog.

    Period.

    WordPress needs to do nothing at all because, as yet, nobody has shown this to be a bug in WordPress itself. WordPress is a piece of free software, and it owes you nothing.

    As far as we care, you're quite free to not use the WordPress software. Maybe using WordPress.com or even Blogger would be better for you. And even here, you're free to complain and ask for help, and we'll try our best to assist.

    But there are limits to how far we'll go. You see, in the end, it's like this: Your blog, your problem.

    Expecting others to fix your issues is not going to help, because a) we're not going to fix your problem and b) you're going to have to learn to deal with that. Hey, I don't know what the problem with your blog is. The catch to that is that I also don't really much care.

    See, what we do on this forum is to try to help people where we can, when we can. If you identify a bug or give us information that helps us identify a bug, great! I'll even try to fix it and get the patch into the next version of WordPress. I'll do everything I can to help you by explaining issues to you. I've even helped many, many people via email. I'll try everything I can to explain problems and fix issues by the medium of text on this forum.

    But one thing that we absolutely will not do on this forum is take any sort of responsibility for your problems.

    You own the site. You have the problem. You have to deal with it.

    If you need immediate and personal assistance, then I suggest hiring somebody to fix it for you. But you're not paying us, and so you have no right to ask anything whatsoever from us. Any help we provide for free is worth exactly what you pay for it. Taking an attitude on these forums is more likely to make those of us who can help decide that ignoring you is simpler.

    Got it? Okay then.

    Also, this thread is ridiculously long. If you have an issue, start your own thread for that issue. I'm closing this one.
