[resolved] Can not login after 2.6 upgrade (2 posts)

    I've just upgraded to version 2.6 of WP from 2.5, and I can't log in as admin with the password that it is. I went into the phpMyAdmin and reset the password (and then changed to MD5) as some support answers have given, and I've even tried the emergency password reset on village-idiot.org to no avail. And of course, this is after attempting the email password reset from the original log-in about 5-6 times.

    As a last ditch effort I wondered if perhaps it was because I hadn't filled in the Auth_key, Secure_Auth_Key, and Logged_In_Key info of wp-config earlier-- I filled those with the information at http://api.wordpress.org/secret-key/1.1/ and still nothing.

    Umm.. help?? The login screen doesn't even say wrong password, it just keeps repeating: "Please log in again"

    I kept going through miles and miles of messages and found a method to where now it's working. Apparently I had to do a full flush of all my saved passwords and cache on Firefox 3 and now the site is functional again.

    It was highly suspect when I didn't have any problems logging in through Safari, so I tried just clearing out my cache in FF and that did it.
