Support » Installing WordPress » Can’t login after upgrading to 1.2

  • I just upgraded from wordpress 7.x to 1.2, and now I cannot login at all. I overwrote all the files in my wordpress directory when doing the upgrade. It did something to my user password. I used the recover password option, and the new password did not let me login at all. I tried this with both the admin login and the login that I post with. Can anyone help?
    I heard some other people had this problem, but their workarounds did not work for me.

    Can you get to #wordpress on IRC ?
    There may be some help there if what has been posted here has not worked.

    Deleting my cookies, as suggested by a previous post, worked for me.

    I deleted my cookies and tried to login and it won’t let me. It just goes back to the login page….
    Anyone else found a reason/fix for this?

    What I ended up having to do was… leave the database ALONE. Delete everything from your current wp directories EXCEPT the wpconfig file. Upload EVERYTHING from 1.2. Then use the password reset and you should be able to log in. I did *NOT* have to run the wp-install.php or upgrade.php files in order to get 1.2 to work.
    The index.php for 1.02 is not the same as the one for 1.2. The 1.02 only will display a blank page, from what I could tell.

    I was able to get it working on two blogs with info I gleaned from the IRC channel. I had to create a new password hash and manually insert it into the database. Hope this helps someone.
