    Trying to do some tweaks on a localhost installation before I go live with it. All pages on the site load fine, but I can't get to the dashboard. When I navigate to localhost/myblogname/wp-admin, Login page will come up, but once login details are in, I get an object not found error. Help!

    I'm using XAMPP and Chrome browser, at the moment.

    - switching to the default theme by renaming your current theme's folder inside wp-content/themes and adding "-old" to the end of the folder name.

    - resetting the plugins folder.

    - re-downloading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder and the wp-config.php & root .htaccess files - from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    No luck.
    All 3 options tried. Renamed theme folder, adding '-old', reset plugins my PHPmyadmin, downloaded a fresh .zip of WordPress 3.6.1 and replaced all files except those specified.

    Try checking your server's error logs for clues.
