    are you logging in to blog.mydomain.com/wp-login.php, or mydomain.com/blog/wp-login.php ?

    one of the two should work.

    In most of the cases the issue with subdomain and cPanel is due to the fact that users select “redirect” for the subdomain instead of leaving it as it is – a subdomain!

    If you are NOT redirecting it, then your login should be at
    http://subdomain.example.com/wp-login – and it should work. I do have such a setup and never had any problems logging in.

    Well I feel dumb. All that was required was re-setting the admin password via PHPMyAdmin, which I did but neglected to set the encryption to MD5. Once I did that, the login worked.

    Thanks for all the replies.
