Trouble logging in after upgrading versions, page simply refreshes (10 posts)

    I upgraded WP to the current version and when ever I enter my credentials the page simply refreshes. I read through numerous posts here on the forms and this seems to happen to people for different reasons. I have checked to make sure that wp_version is equal to my db version in wp_options. I have completely deleted the plugins folder. I even did a fresh install of wp. It's starting to drive me crazy and I've been trying to resolve this issue for a couple of days now.

    I'm wondering if this might be an issue with our servers? We are self hosting and have never had problems in the past. It's an older unix server running Windows 2000. Some background info: I'm using PHP version 5.2.6 and mySQL API version 5.0.51a.

    Does anyone have a suggestion?

    Have you tried clearing your browser cache (including cookies) or using a different browser?

    How about renaming your .htaccess file to htaccess.txt? (your permalinks will go wonky, but at least you may be able to log in)

    Nope this doesn't seem to have anything to do with it.

    You said you've removed the plugins folder - did you try reverting your theme to default?

    Yes. I actually created an entirely new test site with a completely fresh install of wp using the same database with a different table prefix in the wp_config.php file. I couldn't afford to take my main site offline, so this test site is simply in place on out servers. I plan on creating the site, and then redirecting the DNS to minimize downtime.

    I ran the new instance of wp in debug mode and found that it is indeed a cookie issue. However it is an issue with creating the cookies to access the site. Anyone have any similar issues with this?

    Maybe this would help?

    Not quite. The problem is with the stock wp code not creating/sending the user authentication cookie back to the user; thus the system doesn't think I logged in so it sends me back to the login screen.
