Hi all,

I am faced with a wierd issue. I have installed Magento’s latest version - 0.8.17240on Windows WAMP server and installation was smooth. Now I am able to see the front end pages. But when I attempt to login to the backend, I am taken back to the login page. The system seems to be authenticating the admin user and redirecting back to the login page because a wrong password gives an error promptly. It is when the login credentials are correct that there is no error but am shown the login page again! Has anyone faced this issue?

Thanks in advance.

Are you using localhost as domain name?

It is a standard limitation of browsers that they do not allow cookies for top level domains (no dots in domain name)

You could also set domain name in hosts file localhost.com
