Cannot sign in to WordPress admin
I am unable to log in to wp-admin. After each login attempt, the screen refreshes but then simply returns to the login page.
This started when I was having problems adding another user as administrator. After thinking I had this solved, I logged out and tried to log in as that user, but was unable to do so.
I then tried to log in myself (as admin) again and was not able to. I have been stuck there for more than a week.
I viewed several articles on this issue, including the WordPress.org article Login Trouble at https://codex.wordpress.org/Login_Trouble
I followed all the steps in that article that apply to my situation:
- Enable Cookies
- WordPress MultiSite Network (does not apply)
- Disable Plugins
- Deactivate Theme
- New Login File
- Edit Users Table
- Site URL Redirecting (URL options were set correctly)
- Subdomains/Subdirectories – ((define( ‘SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL’, true) is not present in wp-config.php
- Headers Already Sent (does not apply)
- Check Your URL Options
- Check Your Firewall
None of these suggested fixes solved the problem. So now I am down to the last: If All Else Fails, post to WordPress Support.
