    Hi Praveen,

    Thks for the info! I’ll try to restore my WordPress files and hopefully it will work.

    When I try to access wp-login.php, the usual WordPress login page was not displayed. Instead, the dialog popup is displayed requesting for my username and password.

    my plugins are:


    Hello Steven,

    The only way to troubleshoot is to disable all the plugin for sometime and reload and check, in case if that does not work then change the theme for once and check.

    By the way I found something, have a look at this link http://fairuselab.net/2009/08/15/wordpress-authentication-issue/


    Hi Praveen,
