Upgraded to WP 2.6 and can’t access wp-admin area

  • Guys, I’ve done two other successful upgrades since my original post. I’m aware that the site I’m having trouble with is on a subdomain. What about the rest of you?

    Sorry. In this thread I learnt how to troubleshoot.
    That’s enough if you clean your cache and cookie files.
    At least, it worked for me 🙂

    I have cleared the cache on FF 3.0 and tried IE. I already have a secret key that I had set up for 2.5

    Same for me.

    The new secret keys thing will not prevent you from logging in.

    90% of the time, upgrade problems like these are caused by not uploading all the files.

    Yes, yes, you could never possibly make a mistake there, I know… Trust me. Upload ALL the files again. Every single one. Double check. Triple bloody check.

    Really.

    Because every time somebody emails me with a “I upgraded and my page is now blank” problem, I get their FTP info, log in, and reupload the thing. Usually that fixes it instantly. Why? Because I actually upload all the files and whatever they were doing did not. Simple as that.

    Otto42, people are having this issue even with upgrades via SVN switch.
    So it’s not just a matter of missing files.

    There’s definitely been a cookie issue that’s been overlooked.
    I suspect it has to do with the cookie domain or path for admin login.

    I actually have regular login working fine, it’s admin login that’s in endless-loop mode. Considering the admin login is what they tinkered (heavily) with, I suspect we’ll get a bug fix release or workaround issued by the end of today.

    i just used the “automatic upgrade plugin” to update the latest version of wordpress to my blog.
    as soon as i did that, i went back to sign in and my username & password is invalid. I clicked the “forgot password” and was sent a new password this still does not allow me to login. am i missing something? i’m completely locked out of my blog.

    Uploading 🙂

    OK, it looks to me like there’s a problem with a plugin causing this on my blog. I’ve removed all the plugins and am in the process of adding and activating them.

    Will report back when done.

    can someone help me? i was told i may have to start over on my blog. this makes me sad.

    Usually, the problem is a matter of missing files. Or old versions of the files.

    That said, cookies and admin stuff did indeed change. However, clearing cookies will instantly fix any problems there. And, of course, some plugins are going to break things due to this. So the standard “remove plugins” etc debug process would be advisable.

    I had password issues after updating to 2.6 too – I had to go into the database and manually reset passwords. Once I did that, everything was fine — so far, anyway. I haven’t tried actually posting anything yet. You’ll find the method that I used here:

    If you’ve tried to reset your password using the ‘forgot my password’ link, be sure that you also clear out the activation key.

    Can I suggest that anyone using the All In One SEO Pack plugin remove it from their plugins directory and try to log in again? Let me know if that works for you.
