On my server, I unpacked the lastest WordPress tar (2.0.5), placed it in the home directory of the site under 'wwpp' (http://mysite.com/wwpp/wp-admin -> /home/html/mysite/wwpp/wp-admin), ran the install script which happily accessed mySQL, created tables and the admin acct. Tried to log into admin and got 'Incorrect password'.
Reset password. Same thing. Manually changed password in database. Same thing. Removed all tables from database, deleted wwpp directory, re-installed. 'Incorrect password'.
I've seen discussions about this problem several years ago but has anyone had this problem with a recent version?
Configuraion wise, my Apache server has virtual hosts for mulitple domains (many domains share the same server) and I have WordPress installed in another domain and it's working famously. (This also implies that the above problem is not the version of Apache or PHP). Is there some problem with the same IP address resolving to different domains?
Any suggestions appreciated.
