This is a bit of a strange one, I would really appreciate any help as I’ve been Googling all day without any success!
This morning, when I tried to log in to /wp-admin on my laptop, the login screen simply refreshed (emptying the username/password fields). If I try and log in again, the same thing happens. I’ve tried this on multiple browsers on my laptop (Chrome, Firefox, Edge) and get the same result.
If I log in to /wp-admin on my wife’s laptop or on my phone, I can get in to the Dashboard without any problems and the site works as normal. So it isn’t a problem with the site, it seems like there is something conflicting on my laptop itself which is preventing me from logging in to /wp-admin on any browser.
On the laptop, I am actually able to get to the WordPress dashboard via my GoDaddy account (Hosting & WordPress > Settings > Edit Site), but I can’t actually do anything in there – I can’t view anything in the Media Library (nothing loads), can’t update any plugins (server error), can’t add new users (just refreshes the Add User screen), etc. (I can do all of this on my phone or when logged in on my wife’s laptop).
So I’ve been through a laundry list of troubleshooting on my laptop – clearing cookies, clearing cache, flushing the cache on the site, flushing the DNS cache via Command Prompt. No luck, unfortunately…
I’m running Windows 10 and this is the first time I’ve ever encountered this kind of problem! I did several searches online and could find similar issues, but these were usually where people were completely unable to access their site on any device. I can get there on every device except my laptop.
Any suggestions for troubleshooting, please? Thanks in advance.
