“WordPress Requires Cookies”, “Username Field Empty”, “Password Field Empty” on
Well, I’m about at the end of my rope.
My understanding was that WordPress v2.3.1 was supposed to solve this error that appeared with v2.3. It has not, for me.
I get three errors when I log into my blog:
* “ERROR: WordPress requires Cookies but your browser does not support them or they are blocked.”
* “ERROR: The username field is empty.”
* “ERROR: The password field is empty.”
They do not prevent me from logging in. I do not have any extra spaces following the ?> at the end of my config file. I am in v2.3.1. I turned off my plugins before upgrading, both with 2.3 and 2.3.1, and turned them on afterwards. I have deleted all cookies related to my WordPress install.
I am using Mac OS X v10.5 and Firefox v220.127.116.11. I do not have a firewall active. My cookies are set to be kept until they expire.
Any help would be sincerely appreciated.
Might also add information about hosting situation just in case:
Web-server and version:
Also, the last time you accessed your blog’s admin, did you logout of the admin section before exiting your browser?
Well, I implemented a temporary “fix” in that I commented out the code that generates those error messages, but that’s obviously not fixing whatever the problem really is.
MySQL version: 4.1.22
I’m not sure about the other two, but I’m on LivingDot; I’ll inquire.
Also remember to answer this:
“Also, the last time you accessed your blog’s admin, did you logout of the admin section before exiting your browser?”
PHP Version: 4.4.6
Web Software/Version: Apache 1.3.37
And this problem has been going on for many, many weeks … although there were times where I did not log out of the admin section before exiting my browser, there were also times in which I did log out of the admin section before exiting my browser. In all circumstances, the error messages have been showing up.
Also, I had to reverse the commenting-out of the error messages; it snafu-ed the login.php form.
MichaelH (ironically enough, I’m a Mike H as well), one other thing: in the bug report, you state, “WordPress is in sub-folder so the WordPress address (URL) is different than Blog address (URL).”
In my particular case, it’s not. My WordPress address and blog address are the same.
Good to know. Thanks. If you are of the mind, please note that in trac on that ticket. Just use your Forum login/password there.
I tried this solution and it did not work for me. I’m just going to downgrade back to 2.2.
spotme10, what is your blog’s URL?
Edit: Please, add information about your hosting environment too.
I’m on Lunarpages (www.lunarpages.com). Not sure what kinds of stats you need about their servers. I know they run MySQL 4+, PHP 4+.
What else do you need to know?
Thanks for helping me out, btw! 😉
