Solution: Can’t Log Into New Installation of WordPress In Internet Explorer?

I never had this problem with previous installations but during one installation of WordPress, I couldn’t sign in. I would go to the login screen, enter my information, it would say the password was incorrect and ask me to log in again.

Logging in with Firefox worked (but I prefer IE).

The solution?

Pretty simple actually.

In Internet Explorer, simply go to Tools > Internet Options > then under “Browsing history”, click the “Delete…” button.

In the options, pick “Temporary Internet Files” and “Cookies” (Cookies is likely the culprit).

Click “Delete” then let it do its work. Then “Ok” and you should be set.

There are more advanced solutions at: http://codex.wordpress.org/Login_Trouble but in most cases, just clearing cookies will do the job.

I hope this works for you!
