I’m having a problem with my WordPress installation. I’m trying to move it from one host to another (switching hosting providers for my sites). I was following the instructions given here, and everything went smoothly except for one little thing: I can no longer access the dashboard.
Similar to this (unanswered) question: moving server can not login
The site works, I can see all the posts, all the uploaded pictures, all the comments and tags – everything is there and available. I just cannot access the dashboard. Password recovery didn’t help, and doesn’t seem to be the problem. It doesn’t complain, just clears the fields when I click “log in” and stays on the login page.
Note that the domain name doesn’t change, I switched servers, but the domain remains the same.
What could be the problem, and how to solve it?
Changing the AUTH_SALT (and SECURE_AUTH_SALT) from your wp-config.php should fix it
Disable via SQL administration tool plugin who controls logins. Wp
lock or something, there are many of them. If you used one of those.
you having problem to see with admin dashboard. firstly you re-uplaod the admin folder through the ftp. what ever you choose the uploading manner..
go upload original Admin folder which is downloaded you first one site.
your problem will solve.
I ended up deleting that copy of the installation, and cloning my site using the manageWP plugin instead. That worked just fine.
I had this same problem, first put this in the bottom of your wp-config file to force url location:
The ONLY thing that worked for me to log in is using the “emergency.php” script. It forces WP to let you in. Go here for more info on making the script:
