Completely exhausted - Endless login loop still not fixed (2 posts)

    Hi all,
    Please Help? I've searched through (and tried every possible option I've come across and I still have the same problem. I've searched through every single query relating to this that I can find & tried the solutions there. I've trashed the database and install 3 times and started again & I'm still struggling. Please help?

    I have MU installed with Dynonames & then did another install on a different hosting account & different domain. The install went fine - with sub DIRECTORIES, and I am able to go into wp-admin and create new blogs & new users.
    I created 2 new blogs after I loaded the domain_mapping plugins into the respective directories. I did not "install" the plugin via the control panel - plugins.
    I dont have any other plugins enabled (or even loaded).

    Whenever I try to goto Site Admin - Blogs - Backend, I get a login screen & then find myself in this endless loop back to the login screen - with no error message. Irrespective of username, or being logged into the primary domain or not.

    My A records are pointing to the correct IP Address and I can tell that by typing in the domain name to the address bar & getting to the host blog page.

    I've tried to logout of site admin & login to, but still no luck.
    I've also tried adding cookies - again no luck.

    Install is with sub-directories using the domain mapping plugin.
    The primary domain & site is fine.
    sunrise.php is in wp-content
    domain_mapping.php is in mu_plugins

    I have 1 sub-dir domain edited to remove the host dir and I have another un-edited at all, but I still cant get to the backend to edit the domain mapping for the sub-domains.

    Any advice would be GREATLY Appreciated.

    Comment this out in wp-config.php:

    define('DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', '' );

    Try that, and also try the trunk version of the domain mapping plugin.
