Support » Installing WordPress » Upgrade to 2.6 – Admin Login Problem

  • I upgraded to 2.6
    All seemed to go well until it asked me to log in again.
    It would not let me in.
    I was using the correct password as Firefox was entering it for me.
    Reset the password.
    Cleared the cookies still nothing.

    If I go to my site and login there, it works fine, I see my username.
    If I click on “Site Admin” I can’t get past the login screen despite being logged in !
    If I click on my name to go to my profile page, or if I click on “Write A Post” I can get into the admin are no problem at all !

    Any ideas?

  • Just wanted to add that this trick worked for me too:

    just to rename the plugins folder in wp-content (I rename mine to plugins_). It kills the plugins, which enables you to log in and upgrade. Then rename it back again to plugins.

    I did not do a recent upgrade… it just locked me for no reason at all one day! I didn’t have to upgrade to fix problem either. Just renamed folder, then logged in, then renamed folder back and all is well.



    Same thing happened to me, place a dot (.) before the filename to hide the plugin temporarily and upgrade everything once logged in..
