Support » Installing WordPress » Error: Password field is empty..

  • Anonymous

    I get this when I try to log in…
    the password field isn’t empty
    however there are warnings displayed above the login box that say “Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /home2/futura8/public_html/wordpress/wp-config.php:34) in /home2/futura8/public_html/wordpress/wp-login.php on line 387”
    the same error is displayed for line 389, 393, 395, 397, 399 and 409

    thanks, that fixed it 🙂


    I get the same! it says Error: The password field is empty. But i have no errors coming up! i have tried everything throughout this support forum! And still nothing
    If i type in the right password its says “Error: The password field is empty.” But if i type in the wrong password is says the password is incorrect (ofcourse)
    So the password IS CORRECT! But it says the Field is empty whenever i type it in!
    I’ve also created another User and it says the same thing! HELP!


    yeah i had this problem, several spaces are added to the bottom of the wp-config.php files, simply remove these spaces and it will work perfectly 🙂


    There are no spaces!! Not that i can see 🙁 I’ve been through it so many times, i’ve also downloaded a whole new one and re-uploaded it like 3 times!


    OMG IT WORKED!! It WAS in the config.php!! I went back and double checked! Thanks!!



    I was having the same problem and that worked for me too, thanks!

    I have the problem described above. I have checked all the files in the root wordpress directory for trailing spaces. This hasn’t had any effect. Is there any other place to look? Thanks.

    I solved my issue with a combination of hacks. Stevo3 restored access by editing the cookie path referenced in wp-includes\vars.php. Goddessamy posted a hack to wp-login.php that clears the annoying “password field empty” message that remained briefly after employing the fix above. The latter is for IIS installations.
