    Clear your browser cookies as well. Also try another browser, see if it works there.

    This problem has occurred on multiple machines, and in both Firefox and IE.



    By the way, I’ve also tried clearing my cookies and resetting my password, and neither has worked. When I try to enter the new password at


    I still unable to access my admin panel.

    @Ipslogan, when you upgraded, did you deactivate your plugins first?

    Before you upgrade… “Deactivate your plugins. A plugin might not be compatible with the new version, so it’s nice to check for new versions of them and deactivate any that may cause problems. You can reactivate plugins one-by-one after the upgrade.”
