Can't log in to dashboard after Fantastico upgrade to 2.6.1 (2 posts)

    Hi there - I'm new and have tried to find an answer to this in the forums but couldn't, so please forgive if someone else has already posted on this.

    I upgraded my blog, amysjacob.com using fantastico to WP 2.6.1. Now, when I try to log into the dashboard (http://amysjacob.com/wp-admin.php) I can't. I put in my username and password, and I can't get to the dashboard. I don't get any kind of error message - the page just seems to refresh.

    I tried resetting my password to see if that would work, and I did get sent a new password from my blog. But I still can't log in. Does anyone have any idea why this happened and what I could do to fix it?

    Thanks very much.

    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

    Please let us know what does solve your problem.
