    Might also add information about hosting situation just in case:

    Web-server and version:
    PHP Version:
    MySQL 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?”

    (@wcitymike)

    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.

    For now, reported this via Trac ticket 5365.

    Thank you! I’ll keep my eye on that.

    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.

    WCityMike, I can not reproduce the bug but I modified a bit the wp-login.php file [1], can you test it on your site?

    If you prefer diff files, see [2].

    Wow, xknown, I think that did it!

    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! 😉

    Hmm, I created a test user on your site and didn’t see any error regarding cookies (tested on Firefox and IE7).
