Support » Localhost Installs » Login Keeps Redirecting back to the Login Page

  • I have been trying to get WordPress installed and running on my Windows 2000 Server Machine. WordPress is now up and running and can be seen at but when ever I try to login it just redirects back to the exact same login page.

    I have tried all the steps that I could find doing a searching including:
    1. Verifing the entries in the Option Table both are set to
    2. tried adding a line concerning cookies to the config file
    3. dropped the database and went through the install again, with same results.

    Can anyone suggest something that I have not tried?

  • Have you tried all the options found here, especially this section? If so, it might be an issue with your server.

    That’s one of the Pages I tried earlier but just to make sure I stepped through everything there and still have the same problem. Any other ideas?

    1. Clear cookies, no help
    2. I don’t have a domain_current_site line in wp-config.php
    3. This is clean install, but I deleted everything out of plugins directory anyway
    4. Again clean install but I renamed the themes folder anyway
    5. userlogin line already matched the change suggested
    6. Reseting Password no help both via SQL and via forgot password link
    7. Siteurl and home are correctly set to, I commented out the lines referenced in the login file, no help
    8 no subdomain_install line in my config file, adding it with either false or true generates an error “No site defined on this host. If you are the owner of this site, please check Debugging a WordPress Network for help”
    9. Not doing ssl

    I know this is not much help but if you’ve followed all those steps, reinstalled a clean version of WordPress, and it’s still not working, it more then likely is a configuration issue on the server, and unfortunately exactly what that could be is hard to say. I’d contact your host and see if they can help.

    Problem is it is my own machine, I co locate it at an ISP, W2K, PHP 5.2.17, mysql 5.1.61, wordpress 3.3.1
