[resolved] Cannot log-in to my admin.... **help** (8 posts)

    And yes, I already did a search, tried "emergency.php" and other tricks and none have worked.

    Here is the problem:

    I go to log-in

    The log-in screen shows up, but when I enter in the correct
    user name & password, it goes back to the log-in screen (no error messages are displayed).

    I've been messing with it all day with no luck.

    Now a few days ago I upgraded to the latest version... but I could still access my admin at that point. I've even re-uploaded everything and I still cannot log in.

    Anyone care to help me out?

    Here's some things to try:
    1. logout or logout with http://www.yourdomain.com/wp-login.php?action=logout
    2. disable all plugins--if necessary read How to deactivate all plugins when not able to access the administrative menus?
    3. clear cookies
    4. exit browser
    5. make sure local firewall is not causing problem
    6. login with http://www.yourdomain.com/wp-login.php

    If WordPress is installed in something other than the root folder please take that into account for the above url examples

    Instead of payment, please, just let us know what does solve your problem.

    cant really help you beyond suggesting whats already been discussed elsewhere. You have registration disabled so its even impossible for someone else to register and see if they can login successfully, thus narrowing the problem down to you ..

    if you drop me an email I'll try to help, but Im going to need your admin info obviously.. unless you have another user account available to try.

    1. village-idiot.org is the domain

    2. whoo is the name

    put 2 before 1 and put a @ in between them, and you have my email addy.

    YES! Success!!! Thank you so much Michael!

    Now, I know what you said...
    But I am a man of my word, and would love to send you this gift card.

    let me know how I can send it to you.


  7. Thanks for letting us know you solved it, but Micheal was correct, we really don't accept payment here.

    I understand. I just wish I was able to show my gratitude.
    My knowledge is very limited, so I am not much help here...

    Thanks again guys!

    (I gave kudos on my blog though) : )
