Support » Installing WordPress » Not Able To Login Admin

  • Hello,
    I rename the wp-config.php file and edit it also with database information twice. Each time I enter the User and Password given it does not allow me into the Admin area. Can you help me with this?
    When I go back to the blog it shows but not able to login with the User and Password given and not even the one I setup.

    Thank You

  • Can you view posts on your blog? Or are you having problems there? If you wp-config.php file is not valid you will get a message that WP couldn’t connect to the database.


    I can view post on your blog with no problem. Everything goes through just fine except after it gives me the Username and Pasowrd and I enter them it won’t let me in.

    I hope this is related to this thread somehow. WP has just been set up on my server. I received a confirmation email notifying me my WP blog has been set up but when I follow the link to the admin section, I get the following message:

    Warning: main(../wp-config.php): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/.jat/earthwrk/ on line 2 Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required ‘../wp-config.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/.jat/earthwrk/ on line 2

    I have no idea what this means, but I looked at wp-config.php and admin.php thinking I might get a clue! I didn’t. Can someone please help by translating this for me. Also I don’t know about that path: home/.jat/earthwrk/ … … etc.

    I also tried to login with admin and the given/generated password but it just refreshes the page after clicking the login button and thats all that seems to happen unfortunatly.I tried everything thats written on the “login trouble page” but it just doesn’t seem to work.installing it was great…getting into the admin section/pannel isn’t (yet).I really can’t wait to get into the admin section so i can get things going..i hope someone out here can help me out.Thanx in advance 🙂

    i’m using iexplorer 6.0
    windows xp
    PHP 5.0.0
    Mysql 4.0.17, 4.0.22 and 4.1.11 or at least one of them (not exactly sure)

    I just tried logging in using firefox but unfortunatly i get the same result

    I’ve been through all the posts about login problems, read all the tutorials, about the phpmyadmin, resetting password etc, but nothings helps. I’va no zonealarm and have the problem with IE and Firefox. I want to login to my log, but all I get is that my password is not correct. Tried a new wp-login.php and now its just repeating itself. give my username and password, click login and then get the same login page again New retrieved passwords are also not accepted. Getting desperate!

    What’s this?

    WordPress database error: [Table ‘knoizki_index.wp_usermeta’ doesn’t exist]
    SELECT meta_key, meta_value FROM wp_usermeta WHERE user_id = ‘1’
    You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.

    I’d like to know how to get rid of the database error message? I still cannot log-in to admin panel.

    K – I would suggest re-installing. I am assuming this is a new blog with no entries. That is correct ?

    No it is not a new blog. I upgraded from 1.5 to the latest, done all the config setup & now I can’t log-in to admin & got all the weird messages written above. Thanks.

    Run upgrade again ?

    Do you have a db backup ?

    katootje: I had the same problem last night trying to install a new copy of WordPress in my test environment. I know it was related to cookies or cache but clearing and deleting both didn’t solve the problem. Ultimately, I actually rebooted my local machine, I deleted all the WordPress files on my host account, removed the tables in the database using phpMyAdmin and then a fresh install and it worked.

    K: seems you’ve also posted into the thread so won’t address your issue on this thread.

    “Ultimately, I actually rebooted my local machine, I deleted all the WordPress files on my host account, removed the tables in the database using phpMyAdmin and then a fresh install and it worked.”

    If I do that to start a fresh WP, means:
    1. A new blog
    2. All entries/posts deleted
    3. All comments deleted


    I’ve solved the problem. Downloaded WP again and extracted only wp-login.php to start with and uploaded it to the remote server. It helped. I even didn’t have to give my username and password. It brought me straight to the admin-section. I think something was wrong with the earlier downloaden wp-login. I’ve uploaded that more times, without result. This fresh one worked!

    Thanks for the reply. Mind if you tell me where I can get the “updated & clean” WP RC3 version? Would it also fix the categories & header problem? And what is this plugger-function errors I still experience?

    I’m using Squible 2.5 Theme, does it affect all installations?

    Thanks in advance.
