Upgrade to 2.6 – Admin Login Problem

Viewing 15 replies - 31 through 45 (of 62 total)
  • I’m having this same exact problem and have tried clearing cache, cookies, even used a machine I’ve never used to browse my blog before but same problem. I knew I turned off all my plugins on my 2nd upgrade attempt but the behavior remains. Will keep checking this thread for a solution!

    I am using Safari 3 and Firefox 3 on a Mac. Doesn’t work. I then tried IE7 on a Vista machine and it doesn’t work.

    I am using Opera 9.51 on a Vista machine, and I also tried Firefox 3 – I have the same problem and cannot log in anymore. I’m really unhappy.

    I manage three blogs. The first one (my test blog) upgraded with no issues. The second one resulted in the damned redirect back to the login page loop. I looked here and saw that someone had solved the problem by deleting cookies. I did this (Opera 9.5) and got back in.

    Today I upgraded the third blog. Same bloody loop. Aha, says I, I can fix this. I deleted cookies. Same loop. Deleted cookies, cache, restarted Opera. Same loop. Tried Firefox 3.0. Got on without a problem. Went to my second machine, used Opera 9.5. Logged in without a problem! Back to the machine where I need to login. Same &$&#@&* loop. Read some more here. Tried the wp-admin.php?logout trick. Doesn’t work.

    I tried carefully checking cookies after each step. First I deleted the cookie. I tried to login, got a cookie. Deleted it. Did not work, wound up with a new cookie. Tried the logout fix, checked the cookies: logged in cookie was gone, test cookie still there. Tried to login, same [expletive deleted] loop. Cookie from hell was back.

    I’m out of ideas. Clearly this is Opera fighting with WordPress, but I can’t tell who’s at fault. Thought about hacking wp-login.php but after looking at it, gave up on that idea unless I get really desperate. That could be any time now, this is my wife’s blog and she’s getting really impatient.

    AHA! Folks, when deleting cookies in Opera, DO NOT use the cookies|manage cookies button. Instead, go to the Content dialog and use Manage Site preferences. Edit or add your site there, then use the cookies tab to find and delete the cookies. Once I did that, everything worked again.

    Hope this helps some poor soul. There seem to be a lot of variations on this problem, but it’s clear to me that many of them are caused by persistent cookies.

    We hatesss cookieses.

    That doesn’t change anything. And it also doesn’t work with Firefox, so I don’t think it is a problem of Opera. I really don’t know what to do anymore.

    edit: I tried with IE7, also doesn’t work. 🙁

    Same problem while upgrading my site on Enterprise open source softtare.

    The “clear private datas” trick did not work.
    The problem was that I did not desactivate plugins.
    To solve the problem in in such cases:

    – Connect to your database ( via PhpMyAdmin for example)
    – Find the wp_options->active_plugins row
    – Edit it, and put:
    a:0:{}

    in that row.

    Solved the problem for me.

    As I said:

    There seem to be a lot of variations on this problem, but it’s clear to me that many of them are caused by persistent cookies.

    I think you missed that, SirKillelort 😉

    Anyone who sees the loop back to wp-login in only one browser probably has a cookie problem. That was my case and in reading the threads on this, that’s the case for a lot of other people too. There are clearly similar but different problems. Obviously, if it fails in more than one browser then it’s not a cookie issue. Not sure why anyone would think it was.

    Well, the problem is, it didn’t work in all THREE browsers, so I don’t think it is about cookies. 😉 I will try to deactivate the plug-ins.

    edit: It worked! Woooooohaaaa!!! 😀

    My logging in problem seems to be different from most listed here. I’ve deleted my .htaccess file and edited the database wp_user file.

    I’ve also deleted all the files in wp_admin and wp_includes, then copied all the files over from 2.6.1 download, and the upgrade ran through okay.

    Here’s what happens for me when I attempt to log in.:

    This URL is Not the same as the normal log in screen:
    http://scubadiving-blog.com/wp-login.php

    When I fill in my username and psswd, the URL displays like this:

    http://scubadiving-blog.com/index.php/wp-login.php

    and, because the “index.php” shows up, I get an ERROR 404

    Can someone please tell me which file causes that redirection and how I should fix it?

    I have deleted .htaccess so it can’t be that which is redirecting.

    Thanks very much in advance.

    BTW, what I described above happens in IE, Flock and Firefox

    The following fix might help some people:

    http://trac.wordpress.org/ticket/7322

    sorry to keep writing but I’ve been unable to log in for 5 weeks now. My blog has a PR of 3 but has a lot of broken links I need to fix.

    I read somewhere that the index.php is not necessary for 2.6.1 version, so I renamed the index.php and the blog doesn’t appear.

    I can’t work out what to do.

    This is still what’s happening:

    This URL is Not the same as the normal log in screen:
    http://scubadiving-blog.com/wp-login.php

    When I fill in my username and psswd, the URL displays like this:

    http://scubadiving-blog.com/index.php/wp-login.php

    and, because the “index.php” shows up, I get an ERROR 404

    Can someone please tell me which file causes that redirection and how I should fix it?

    Thanks in advance!

    I have a fresh install and this is happening… running vista and firefox3

    I have no plugins activated on the fresh install.

    I finally found the solution – it’s right here on the forums, I just had to hunt a lot to find it.

    Here’s the thread

    And, here’s the site that has the instructions:
    http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/site-url/

    The name of the URL and the siteurl in the wp_options table in the database was my problem
