I’ve installed Magento 1.7.0.2 onto a website. The installation went fine but once it was completed I tried to login to the backend and even with the correct credentials the url seemed to redirect but it continued to show the login page. I checked the cookies and it doesn’t seem to be setting any.

This was solved, the problem was that the local time on the VPS was an hour behind and magento cookies expire after an hour.
