    Clear your cookies & your cache to start.

    already tried
    also tried in other browsers
    without success 🙁

    Got any redirection plugins running?
    try disabling all your plugins.

    (I know the first post said a clean install, just checking)

    all plugins disabled – it’s really clean install

    maybe I can enable some logging to find out what is happening?
    have such redirects on every login
    wp-login.php -> network.php -> wp-login.php

    I have the same issue as posted in another topic,

    Anyone ever figure anything out on this, Fresh install, not a plugin, not a browser issue, not a cache issue, not a cookie issue.

    Tried all browsers, all are the same this is PHP problem, If someone can point me to the right PHP page, to fix this I would be a very happy camper,

    I suspect your site is set up with a www and the network lines have a non-www reference.

    don’t have www in my site setup

    finally found the solution
    on my test platform I had host wmpu-local without dot
    thats why when WP tried to set cookie for subdomains browser can’t accept it
    because there was .wmpu-local host in set-cookie

    Glad you fixed your problem.

    For future reference I had the same problem after setting the option “dashboard site” (Super Admin > Options > Dashboard Site) to a blog id.

    After having done so, any visit to my blog url would redirect me to dashboard authentication page.

    Resetting this option to blank solved the problem.

    I just went to redo an install on a development server today and am coming up with this exact error.

    The homepage loads just fine with twentyten installed. I can access the DB fine, but when I try to login through wp-login.php I get a redirect with “wp-admin%2F&reauth=1” at the end.

    Logging in with an incorrect username/password throw up the normal “screen shake” error and I can go through the password reset stuff as well, but a correct login sends you back to the login page each time.

    I’ve tried editing resetting the .htaccess back to the default and commenting out the WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE in wp_config but getting nowhere.

    Any other ideas?

    Cleared your cache & cookies? A different browser is always a good test.

    Got this too after a 100% clean install last night

    All the tests etc above done – still don’t work – exactly same symptoms as masonjames

    (for inter-user comparison – this one is on shared server PHP 5.2 MySql 5.summick Apache 2.summick install in domain root of an add-on domain, cPanel)

    gazouteast, was this a fresh install over top of an old install?

    Andrea_r’s solution did work for me. I actually reset my .htaccess file to the “default” WordPress and then did a dns cache flush (open a terminal and type “dscacheutil -flushcache”)

    Did the trick. I then enabled mutlisite and updated my .htaccess with the rules provided within WordPress. No issues. Running multisite on subdomains now.

    I thought it might be an issue with the host as it uses vDeck (which I’m not as familiar with as cPanel) but it’s definitely a local cache issue. If you’ve cleared you’re browser try a clearing the dns. Good luck!

    Hi All

    Nope to all the suggestions above – the resolution was far simpler than all of you are looking at, and I’m very surprised Andrea didn’t think of it (but then I didn’t either and I have a long-standing bug report in trac about it).

    In WPMU 2.9.2 and earlier, the final screen of install is about 3 screen heights tall – at the top it gives the master admin username and password followed by a “login now” button. A LONG way down that page it says to delete or rename the /wp-admin/install.php file BEFORE trying to login.

    WP 3.0 does not have that warning anywhere in the install screens, nor the readme, nor anywhere in the codex. On a hunch, I tried doing exactly that – BINGO – got straight in.

    When I get a minute, I’ll file another bug report in trac about this.

    Hope it helps you all

    I cleared Cache and cookies, but after some times it starts again..
    Does anyone know where this error is comming from so i can remove it?
