Forbidden (403) after upgrading to 1.5 (4 posts)

    Greetings, all. This is my first post and I am a newbie.
    I have upgraded an existing .71 installation to 1.5 and am getting Forbidden (403) error - You are not authorized to view this page - when trying to log in as admin. I also cannot access the blog at all at its location. (same 403 error).

    I was able to log in as admin under the previous .71 version so I know the user/password is correct. I've also confirmed info in the wp-config file.

    Any ideas? Many, many thanks.

    Delete your .htaccess ?

    Thanks, there are no .htaccess files on the site (I checked my FTP filtering to be sure I'd see them). Should there be one there?

    Update: this seems to be the same problem others have seen with redirection back to admin login. After installing the fix, I was able to log in fine. Thanks for all the great support.
