    Try downloading WordPress again and delete then replace your copies of the /wp-admin/ and /wp-includes/ directories with fresh copies from the download.

    Even though it’s a fresh install, some of the files could have been corrupted and/or missed during the upload.

    tried that, same situation

    Lot of very fast blaming of the FTP connections being done by moderators this week – think you need a different answer for next week guys 😉

    Ok, I’ll get back to you next week then. Let me know if you find a solution.

    Hi MacManX

    The resolution was far simpler than anyone thinks, and I’m very surprised I got caught by it again as I have a long-standing bug report in trac about it.

    In WPMU 2.9.2 and earlier, the final screen of install is about 3 screen heights tall – at the top it gives the master admin username and password followed by a “login now” button. A LONG way down that page it says to delete or rename the /wp-admin/install.php file BEFORE trying to login.

    WP 3.0 does not have that warning anywhere in the install screens, nor the readme, nor anywhere in the codex. On a hunch, I tried doing exactly that – BINGO – got straight in.

    When I get a minute, I’ll file another bug report in trac about this.

    Hope it helps you all
    Gaz
