I just started a new WordPress blog (v. 2.3.3) on my own domain. I had some trouble with the database at first but eventually got it installed, got the "Success" screen, and the blog is now online and running.
HOWEVER, I can't do anything to it because it won't let me log in as admin! When I try, and type in the correct username and password, I always get the same error message:
"ERROR: WordPress requires Cookies but your browser does not support them or they are blocked."
But that is completely not true! First of all, I have "Always allow cookies" as my browser setting. Secondly, I tried it in Safari, Firefox, and Internet Explorer -- all with cookies allowed, all the latest versions -- and got the exact same error message in every one, no matter how many times I tried.
How can I fix this glitch, and successfully log in?
Thee is a second problem, that isn't exactly related, but I'll mention it here in case it has some relevance to the login issue: The default front page of the new blog is kinda screwed up, in that I can see a mass of jumbled characters where the header and footer should be, and the formatting is all awry, and the default "kubrick" theme doesn't really appear properly.
I'm hoping to fix all that once I log in!
