I have some blogs, and after upgrading to 5.1.1 I always have to reauth myself. If password/username is wrong, I got that error message but if I enter right data, the page simply reloads. So I go to:


it then redirects to:


and even I enter the right account data, it just reloads the site.

Of course, clearing all browser data helps - but next day, this bug occurs again. I dont think its a good solution to clear my browser everytime when it happens.

EDIT: Its Php 7.3 and nginix

EDIT2: I added this line to my config:

define('FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', false);

so far works well. I dont know what it is by the way.

    try renaming your .htaccess file as .htaccess1 and let wordpress create fresh one for you. goto admin->settings->general and see in there you have correct https urls for both Site URL and Home
