All of a sudden I can't log in to a site I've been working on for years. Made some changes to content yesterday but didn't make any plugin/WP version changes. A few minutes later went in to make a few more changes. Every time I try to login, it just resets. No error, just a page refresh and blank fields. Tried this in two browsers, one if which I don't think I had ever logged in with. Same problem. Tried resetting the password. The link in the reset password form just says "invalid key." I also replaced the wp-login.php file with a fresh copy. Any other ideas? The front-end of the site continues to work fine.

Good call. The host found a tmp directory that wasn't deleting files and was so bloated no more changes could be made.
