I've been experiencing a weird "bug" in my website which I have a form in the front page to do the log in, it doesn't log, redirects me to the WP-login.php and it says the Cookies may not be active in my browser.

I've checked my browser and the cookies are active.

After log in (on the WP-login page) it never happens again. But after cleaning my cache and testing again, it does the problem.

How do I fix this?

  • Does this happen with all plugins disabled and with a default theme?

  • Does the server do any caching?

  • Nope, I think it doesn't cache.

  • Can you try to change the salts in wp_config.php? You may want to also try to reinstall the WordPress core files just in case something may be corrupted. Jan 24, 2014 at 19:54

I too experience this when I go to the [domain]/wp-admin page to login.

The issue seems to be with the redirect which loops back to the login page instead of going to the Dashboard.

Instead of going to the [domain]/wp-admin to login, try going to [domain]/wp-login.php instead. The redirect seems to work correctly this way.

Best regards.
