Support » Fixing WordPress » ack! what’s up with my login page?

  • HI, I can’t log in on my page today! not sure why. it shows up to view fine,
    but when I go to login in and enter the username and password it goes no where and just resets and gives me the same login page again.
    So I reset my password and it sent me a new one. but it still won’t let me login even with the new password it sent me

    One thing I wonder about is….
    yesterday I upgraded my firefox browser to the latest version.. could there be an issue with the new version and wordpress?
    or is there something else I need to look at within wordpress ?

    I’ve been tearing my hair out for two days with the login problem. I’ve Googled and searched here for answers, but nothing works. I’ve reset my password, cleared the cache, cookies, etc.

    However, I’ve discovered something interesting. When I try to login to ANY of my PHP based apps, I get the SAME phenomenon – that is, when I enter my username and password, it simply re-displays the login screen. This is for WordPress, Gallery2, and kPlaylist. The SAME things is happening on each PHP based app.

    This also happens regardless of what machine I’m on (home, work, laptop, desktop), so I don’t think it’s a local machine issue (hence the failure of clearing cookies/cache/etc.).

    I’m using Ubuntu Edgy Eft, Apache2, PHP5, ISPconfig, mySQL 5.

    I suspect it’s a redirect issue, but I’ll be damned if I can figure out where to begin! Any ideas on what logs I can use to start troubleshooting this? I can’t get into ANY of my PHP apps, WordPress included. I can provide password info to anyone who can help me. is my WordPress blog.

    Resolved – turns out that I has set the upload_max_filesize parameter in my php.ini to 2048M. That caused the inability for any of my PHP scripts to allow logins. Weird. I set it back to 1024M, and it worked – I can log in to WordPress, Gallery2, or kPlaylist. None of those worked with the upload_max_filesize set too big.

    Go figure.
