Fresh install of 3.7.1 on localhost

Failed troubleshooting so far:
Cookies enabled in browsers (FF, Chrome). failed.
Disabled plugins (manually). failed.
Cleared browser cache (FF, Chrome). failed.
Troubleshooting above indicates WP core error. New WP 3.7.1 login cookie remains unset. Please help, I’ve exhausted all options.
It’s more like to be a server sessions or cookie issue. Have you spoken to your hosts about it? Or checked your error logs?
There is no host because it runs on local MAMP.
PHP error logs pointed to an empty script-init.php file. Removing the file allowed everything to go back to normal for now.
Same here my friends, I have even reverted to v3.7 but am still unable to access the admin panel.
I have read about it in another thread that this is an issue with v3.7.1
Please do let us all know if you come across a way out of it.
@tanver – this thread is resolved, so won’t be a good place to get help with a new issue – and unless your site is on local host, not the same issue.
Have you read through this?
If you need additional help, please do start your own thread as per:
This worked for me:
- Renamed the Active theme before update.
- Successfully logged in
- Changed back to the original Theme
For this freaking thing i had to spend two hours googling 🙁
I have solved that one, Please rename or removed you plugins one by one , you just got that solved.
i’m using wp 3.8.1 and can’t login to wp-admin plugin, the cause is plugin “Quick Featured Images”. After i remove that plugin, i can login to wp-admin.
Happened to me twice (3.8.1). I found the culprit, it was a plugin. If you only have a live-running installation and want to avoid crashing your website:
- Do not delete cookies
- Start renaming your plugins’ folder names (NOT the “plugins” folder) one at a time starting from the less essential ones, if any.
- Refresh login page
- Try to login. If first attempt fails, try once more. On many occasions second try works.
- If it still fails, rename plugin folder name to original name.
- Go to next plugin. Repeat the steps
Hope this works, did for me.
I have the same issue, here’s the website. I get the exact same error.
This is a “resolved” thread.
To get attention to your specific issue as you deserve, my suggestion is to start a new thread. Review this: http://codex.wordpress.org/Forum_Welcome#Where_To_Post
I’ve tried putting on a new post like this but ironically the instructions are for how to set up a question via WordPress and I can’t login to WordPress!!
If none of these are working you may need to check with your hosting provider to ensure that Varnish isn’t enabled.
This was the case for a client site. Was a hard one to track down, for sure.
