Support » Installing WordPress » problem with login, always redirects (local machine/iis)

  • I’ve installed WP on my local machine (IIS, PHP and MySQL…) Everything seemed to be working great until I noticed the admin login page always redirects me back to the login page. I checked out this link ( but it really didnt help me out too much since I am running the latest release. The bright side is, its my machine so I can go in an edit any server related details if needed, but I’m stumped and am hoping someone can shed some light on it for me.

    Thanks 🙂
