[resolved] After changing domains, cannot log in to admin (4 posts)

    Switched from one domain to another, but kept the same directory. It disappeared in the process and was recovered from backup server. That all may be irrelevant.

    The site itself runs fine, but we cannot login to the WordPress admin. It just refreshes the page after a few seconds.

    We tried a password reset and I changed the password in PHPadmin, as well as with the emergency script. Same result.

    Switched from one domain to another,

    Did you change 'site URL' and 'home' in wp-option table?

    @bottleneck Thank you thank you, thank you! The URl option worked. "Home" doesn't seem to be there (anymore?). It scared me, though, because it took a minute to hit the browser.

    I have this little Italian firecracker who's been jumping all over me for 24 hours since this broke. What a relief.

    You are welcome.

    I am glad you almost made it. PhpMyAdmin reads 30 rows by default, 'home' is on the second page of wp-options (#37).

    Take care.
