    my config :
    server on my localhost (running MAMP)
    OS : OS X Leopard

    hi all,
    I just install WP MU on my localhost, it works except I can't login to the admin panel !
    when I type my username and password (the one given when the install is finished) and submit... and I arrived again on the login page, without error message.

    what's wrong ?
    I already install over 30 regular Wordpress on my localhost and it works fine.

    and happy new year !

    Running subdomain or subdirectory?

    did you install as localhost.localdomain when you installed.

    We need slightly more details.

    I use an address like to access to the main blog.
    the main blog works, I can open the login page, but can't login to admin page.

    define('COOKIE_DOMAIN', FALSE); in the wp-config.php

    Thanks jogule, that fixed a similar problem I had. But why? I have 40+ sites in my WPMU install, and only one could not log in. Is there a down-side to setting COOKIE_DOMAIN = FALSE, especially for the 40 sites that didn't need it?
