    Hi Matthew,

    Thanks for your response. I’ve deleted cookies related to technobiography.com . I’ve also ensured that cookies are allowed. Still not working. Tried it for both chrome and safari.

    Friends,
    Any other ideas?

    @gowthamtech: It is impolite and contrary to forum policy to interrupt another poster’s ongoing thread with a question of your own. Please post your own topic.

    I thought starting a new topic the same as this will get information and fixes for this topic scattered.

    @gowthamtech: Are you using the same version of WordPress on the same physical server hosted by the same hosts with the same plugins, theme & configurations as the original poster? No? Then post a new topic.

    Hi All!

    I went to the extreme and re-installed my wordpress blog.
    I was momentarily able to login to my newly installed blog.
    But now that I’ve re-connected my backup (sql) database to my wordpress blog,
    the login symptoms originally described are recurring.

    Here’s what I did:

    1.) Backed-up blog using these back-up instructions. Result: sql file in my laptop.
    2.) Re-installed wordpress
    Result: able to login to wordpress fresh install.
    3.) Restored backup on my server (dreamhost). I also dropped old databases as instructed in this visual tutorial.
    Result: I can see blog on front end but without any posts (only Hello World).
    4.) I re-visited wp-config.php . I updated the table prefix:
    from:
    $table_prefix = ‘wp_’;
    to:
    $table_prefix = ‘wp_fgmcjg_’;
    Result: Now my posts appear on front end of blog (some codes are broken).
    BUT now the login is now back to old symptoms:

    When I enter “admin” and the correct password, browser returns me to http://www.technobiography.com/wp-login.php .

    Please please help.
    How can I restore properly? (have old posts AND be able to login).

    I’ve done everything I can from this page:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Login_Trouble

    I’m back to same problem as originally posted.

    Please help.

    Thanks!

    If I can’t login, is there still a way to export my blog from outside the admin panel?

    The idea is to backup my blog NOT via SQL DB, but via XML. Can that work?

    Not resolved. What I’ve decided to do is use the fresh install (starting with zero posts). Then will find a way to extract past posts and add to the fresh install.

    oh well.

    Hi All!

    I was able to restore my blog.
    Short of it: On a fresh install, I restored my posts via SQL.

    Here’s the step-by-step (most of it) of how I recovered my blog.
