    First of all… Thank you! It looks like my theme was causing some issues and i dont know why. There was no update to the theme and everything was working perfectly fine before.

    Good video but none of the suggestions here fixed my problem. If you have above issues, and in addition cannot create new users you might have a database issue like I did and none of the fixes worked, try this: The problem was that AUTOINCREMENT flag was missing from primary key of some database tables. For me this included _users, _usermeta and _term_taxonomy database tables. You will need to go into the database (phpMyAdmin), and for each affected table: first change any rows with primary key values of 0 to some unique value other than 0, for example one higher than the currently highest primary key in the table (and update any related tables that reference the changed 0 primary key), then go to Structure tab and add AUTOINCREMENT to the primary key (A_I checkbox) and apply.

    Deactivating 301 redirect plugin solves the problem but I am using redirect for my custom login page. How can I use custom login page redirect from default login?

  • Great Shairy on June 4, 2020

    Thanks. Plugins removed and solved My Problem. Thanks Again

  • Gustavo A. Bravo García on June 11, 2020

    I did all that, and it does not let me access, when I deactivate the plugings, they are not deactivated, when I deactivate the main theme, it is not deactivated, I already reinstalled a backup and even with that it did not work, I even played with lines of code that I found on the internet in the wp-conf.php file, change the password and nothing..

    It doesn't work to log in to wordpress wp admin. I also know the password and the username. When the login page appears, I write the login details and nothing happens. When I try on the phone it goes to log in. I also tried Chrome, Edge, Mozilla, etc. and it still doesn't work. I installed the Tor browser and it works to log in to the site, it works. What do you think needs to be done? Thank you in advance!
