Wordpress login problem, blank page on wp-login.php


Go to solution Solved by ichi,

Question

ichi

I've been running this wordpress install for about a year and a half. It's currently at version 3.6 with the twenty eleven 1.6 theme.

 

Last thing I've been messing with is giving the twenty thirdteen theme a try yesterday. I decided I didn't really like it so I reverted back to twenty eleven.

I didn't notice anything strange yesterday, nor did I this morning as I was already logged in the admin panel. Later this morning I needed to log in from another computer and that's where I first got the problem: I filled in the user/pass info and clicked "login", and I was redirected to the wp-login.php page, where all I see is a dot at the top left.

 

So just in case I went back to the laptop where I was already logged in, opened an incognito tab and tried to log in there. Same result, a blank page with a dot.

 

I've tried to:

 

- Rename the wp-admin and wp-includes folder, uploading the fresh files from the wordpress 3.6 zip.

- Rename the wp-login.php file and upload it again from that same zip.

- Rename the plugin folder to effectively disable them all.

- Switch to the other themes I've installed (twenty thirdteen and twenty twelve).

 

I've submitted a support ticket to my host provider as I've read something about some hosts blocking access to the wp-login.php because some brute attack trend on wordpress sites, but I've yet to get a response.

 

The weird (or maybe not that weird) thing is that other than that the web is working perfectly fine, even the admin panel with the already logged in session. I just can't log in again, but the all the content is available and all the functions in the admin panel work.

 

So, has anyone ever seen this happening? Anything else I could check?

Ah well, mistery solved: I still haven't got a response from the host provider but it's definitely them blocking access to the wp-login.php.

 

Just tried to rename the wp-login.php file and I can login through the new url.

      Apple blocks WordPress iOS app updates until in-app purchases added [Update]
      by Matthew Watson

      WordPress has claimed that Apple has blocked further updates to its iOS app until in-app purchases (IAP) are added, effectively forcing them to add a revenue source for Apple (who take a 30% cut of all in-app sales) into their app.

      WordPress is a free, open-source piece of software that can be used to run websites; and is a commercial company that is partially behind the development of the WordPress software, but also offers domain registrations and managed hosting. WordPress.com also develops its own iOS app (which can be used to manage a website running WordPress from an iOS device), but crucially this app can be used whether you are paying for a WordPress.com account, or using the (free, open-source) software and hosting it yourself. This meant that the iOS app has never offered IAP - these would only have ever been useful to users of WordPress.com accounts, and not those that self-host the software.

      However, in a series of tweets, WordPress.com developer Matt Mullenweg revealed that Apple has prevented further updates to the iOS app being released to the App Store until IAP are offered for WordPress.com hosting plans. Apple would take 30% of any plans purchased via this method.

      Currently, you cannot purchase anything via the WordPress iOS app (either via an in-app purchase or through another storefront) - it only allows for free websites to be created. Apple is, however, insisting that some plans be available to purchase. An Apple spokesperson has said that in-app purchases are required whenever “allow users to access content, subscriptions, or features they have acquired in your app on other platforms or your web site”. Yet, it does not seem that the WordPress iOS app currently offers any of these features.

      Matt Mullenweg has said that they will relent to Apple’s demands, and will add options to allow for domains and hosting plans to purchased within the app; Apple has agreed to allow the app to receive updates until this feature has been released.

      This is yet another saga in the battle against Apple and app developers, which has recently gained further traction with Apple removing the popular battle royale game Fortnite from their App Store, resulting in the game’s developer Epic Games filing a lawsuit against Apple and starting a huge legal battle. It also comes as many others, including newspapers and prominent companies such as Facebook, are beginning to question Apple over their treatment of developers on their platform.

      Update: The issue seems to have been corrected by Apple:
