I guess that technically I am not moving to a new server, but rather a new installation to create a dev environment to work on before pushing to prod site. I have followed instructions here several times starting fresh each time:
The issue is that after moving the files and importing db to new install I am unable to log-in to the control panel. If I type in the wrong credentials, I get the "wrong username/password" error--which i don't get if i use the right credentials, but the right credentials just won't log me in.
- double/triple checked the cp url in config.php/database.php
- made sure permissions were set per instructions in the link above
- cleared browser cookies/cache
- even have had friends check from their computer (computer that had never visited the site before)
Still no solution. I found this question-- which seems to be what I am experiencing:
This did has not solved my issue.
What could I be missing?
