Occasionally we receive an e-mail from our users that they cannot log in to their WordPress management area. Login problems can be caused by various errors, such as errors in establishing a database connection, internal server error or a  white screen of death. Another type of login error is when your login page continues to refresh and is redirected to the login screen. In this article, we’ll show you how to resolve the WordPress issue with the login page for modifying and redirecting login pages.

Delete cookies to solve login problems

WordPress uses cookies for login verification, so the first step in solving problems with WordPress login problems is the simplest. Delete your browser cookies and cache. Also, make sure that your browser has cookies enabled. Then restart your browser and then try logging in. This should solve the problem for most people.

Deactivate all plug-ins

Sometimes WordPress plug-ins can cause this problem if there is a conflict between two plug-ins. To deactivate all your WordPress plug-ins, you connect to your web hosting using an FTP client. Rename / wp-content / plug-ins / folder to plugins_backup. This will deactivate all WordPress plug-ins installed on your website. We also have a detailed tutorial on deactivating all WordPress plug-ins when access to WP-Admin is not possible. After you have deactivated all plug-ins, try logging in to your WordPress site. If this succeeds, it means that one of your plug-ins has caused the problem.

Return to the default theme

WordPress themes can also cause conflicts after upgrading to a newer version of WordPress or the theme itself. If you want to know if the issue is caused by your theme, you must deactivate your theme. The process is similar to deactivating the plug-ins. Connect to your website using an FTP client. Go to / wp-content /themes/directory and rename your current theme folder to everything. WordPress will look for your current theme and will fall back on the standard theme. Once you’ve done that, try logging in again. If this succeeds, it means that your theme has caused the problem.

If you are already using the default theme as your current theme, you can still rename it and try logging in. If you can log in successfully, it means that your default theme may be damaged. Download a new copy of the standard theme from the WordPress theme repository and upload it to your website.

Delete .htaccess file

Sometimes a .htaccess file can get corrupted, which can result in internal server errors or refresh errors in the login page. Easy access to your website via FTP. Back up the .htaccess file on your computer and then delete it from the root of your website. You may also want to delete the .htaccess file in the wp-admin folder if it exists. Try to log in again. If that succeeds, it means yours. Htaccess file prevents you from logging in to WordPress. After you have logged in, simply go to  Settings »Permalinks and click Save. This will generate a new .htaccess file.

Update website URL

In some cases, the problem seems to be solved by defining the URL of the site. To do this, you must log in to your site using FTP and edit the wp-config.php file. Just add these two lines of code to your wp-config.php file and don’t forget to replace example.com with your own URL. Even if your site has www. make sure you add that.


Save changes and hopefully, this will solve the problem of refreshing the login page.
