I’ve experience migrating wordpress sites and have done so successfully till recently I encountered this strange case. Haven’t been able to find an answer so I thought I post this question to the community.
Migrated wordpress site with database and theme (everything) correctly.
Corrected some of the config as both the url and server has changed.
Site displays properly.
When logging in to wordpress using an administrator account, the password resets automatically upon logging in. I see that some people encounter such problems but there isn’t a proper solution. From phpmyadmin, I can see that the password is not MD5 hash, its just a string with letters and special characters like “?./”
Changing the password in phpmyadmin to proper hash but problem arises when I log in and the reset occurs again.
Updating wordpress to 3.4.1, problem still there
Disable all plugins and try logging in, problem still there
Replaced the core files in FTP, problem still there
Created a new user account and tried logging in, problem still there
I’m running the site in my shared server which is also running other wordpress so I’m sure it is an account bound problem. I also know that the site does not have this problem in its old server. I’m out of ideas, has anyone encountered such problems and solved it? Or is this a virus issue (seen someone shouted virus in other threads but not sure if it’s creditable)
