Problem with login (3 posts)

    I'm new to wordpress. I downloaded the latest version 2.0.2 as well as

    PHP 5.1.2
    MYSQL 5.0.18
    phpmyadmin 2.7.0-pl2

    I used wamp from wampserver.com to install PHP, Apache and Mysql.

    I followed all instructions. When I start the server I see the main page. However when I go the login screen and type in the user "admin" and the radom password I was given at the install, nothing happens. The login screen gets reloaded. If I type in the wrong user or the worng password I get an error message but if I type in the correct user and password I get no error message. The login page simply reloads. I believe it validates the password however it doesn't forward me to the right place. I'm been searching the forums for information but haven't found anything. I did clear my browser cache and cookies, I tried with both explorer and firefox, I removed the plugins as explained in codex.wordpress.org/Login_Trouble" , I checked the siteurl and home value in the database ("http://localhost/wordpress"), I removed the wordpress database and did the install.php again to regenerate all the tables and a new default password. No change. everything seems fine. Any idea?

    I don't think this is your fault.
    I had the same problem before and now I'm having it again.
    I believe this is an issue of WP 2.0 with some windows settings but no one was able to find what.

    *I can login from Firefox though.

    It might be the installation of PHP you're using. You can try another one: xampp (http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-windows.html)

    I use that with my local install of wordpress, and it works fine.

    For those that don't know, this affects wordpress running on local installs of apache :)
