[resolved] 3.1 admin login problem (4 posts)

    I upgraded to 3.1 and since then I have an annoying problem trying to login as admin. If I have been viewing my site then try and login to admin (I use the correct username/password) it just loops back to the login page. Currently the only way I manage to resolve this is to close the browser tab I was using, then open a new tab and go to the admin login from there.

    It has been suggest that this is a cookie problem, but I'm not sure what I need to do to sort it out.

    any ideas?

    Replace the Authentication Unique Keys/Salts within your wp-config.php file in your blog directory. See these instructions and URL to do so:


     * Authentication Unique Keys and Salts.
     * Change these to different unique phrases!
     * You can generate these using the {@link https://api.wordpress.org/secret-key/1.1/salt/ WordPress.org secret-key service}
     * You can change these at any point in time to invalidate all existing cookies. This will force all users to have to log in again.
     * @since 2.6.0

    Also, clear your cache/cookies within your browser.
