[Resolved] Cannot log-in to Admin

Viewing 6 replies - 1 through 6 (of 6 total)
  • I have searched for solutions and found basically only password resets. So I’ve tried that — the phpMyAdmin password reset method is not working. I have two other WP blogs and they updated to WP 2.6.3 just fine.

    I’m stuck at the log-in screen.

    I SOLVED the ISSUE!!

    go to ur server, and reach the wp-contents folder

    Now rename the folder “plugins” to sth else like “plugs”

    now go back to ur login page, http://www.yourname.com/wp-login.php give username & password..YOU ARE DONE!!!!!!!

    Now go back to server again…rename plugs back to plugins

    r u happy now?

    okay…renamed plugins to “plugs”. Tried to log-in, just sends me to the same page:

    Logging in from this page:
    http://www.flakepublishing.com/blog/wp-login.php

    redirects me to this:
    http://www.flakepublishing.com/blog/wp-login.php?redirect_to=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.flakepublishing.com%2Fblog%2Fwp-admin%2F

    Seems like it’s trying to send me to the Admin page…but keeps me on the login page… weird. What could be causing this?

    OKAY… problem is SOLVED:

    The SECRET KEY section of code was missing in my previously used wp-config.php.

    Apparently, the wp-config.php file did not have this in WP 2.5+.

    So, from the wp-config-sample.php I replaced this:

    <em>define('AUTH_KEY', 'put your unique phrase here'); // Change this to a unique phrase.
    define('SECURE_AUTH_KEY', 'put your unique phrase here'); // Change this to a unique phrase.
    define('LOGGED_IN_KEY', 'put your unique phrase here'); // Change this to a unique phrase.</em>

    with a new key generated from: http://api.wordpress.org/secret-key/1.1/

    …renamed the file to wp-config.php, uploaded and replaced the “Old” one…and now it all works.

    So you have to create a new wp-config.php using the sample one provided in the install package.

    You need to delete browser cookies and cache, then try again.

    Renaming the plugin directory will only help if it’s a plugin that’s causing the problem.

    True, mrmist… true. My issues weren’t plugins.
