Support » Fixing WordPress » Help! Locked out of my blog again!

  • Hi,
    For the secind time in two days I’ve been totally locked out of the admin section of my blog, which is running locally.
    I’ve turned on allow all cookies, in case that affects it, and I’ve also done an md5() of my password and compared that to the string in the password field of the database; they are a perfect match.
    When I try to login I’m not getting any sort of error (incorrect password, etc), it just keeps looping back to the login page.
    Please, someone help me… My sanity is failing quickly…
    Andrew.

  • I’ve just manually entered all the details for a new user, including an md5()’d password. It still won’t let me in!
    *VERY LOUD EXPLETIVE*

    FIXED!
    The problem was caused by ZoneAlarm. (running site off localhost)
    So, if you’ve got issues logging in to your blog when developing locally, turn off your software firewall 😀
