I have tried many ways that your url described, but failed. It is really frustrated.
1)The php version in my ISP: PHP Version 5.3.22
2)MySql version in my ISP: 5.1.68
3)Clear your browser cookies.
4)Clear your browser cache.
5)Installed the version: wordpress-3.5.1
6)showed the correct code you mentioned in the wp-login.php
$user_login = $user_data->user_login;
7)In phpMyAdmin via cpanel edited wp_users table carefully
updated the "user_login" and "user_pass" and under Function column selected the "MD5" for them
8)Subdomains or Subdirectories: I have put" define( 'SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', false);"
9)I have tried FF on mac snow leorpard and on PC, IE8, Chrome and Safari on Mac, once I called http://artworks.amsegen.com/wp-admin/, admin login small window sliding down from the top of browser said:
- Authentication Required
- A username and password are being requested by http://artworks.amsegen.com. The site says: "WordPress attack protection CAPTCHA. Enter username: [removed ]. After I typed the username "[removed], this message displays: "No site defined on this host. If you are the owner of this site, please check Debugging a WordPress Network for help." at http://artworks.amsegen.com/wp-admin/
Not sure what else I need to do? I have been redoing whole process at least five times either thru automatic 5 minutes settings or manually settings by modifying the wp-config.php.
Not sure why it is so hard to get into the admin section???
Any further suggestion would be really appreciated!!
