Try clearing cache/session

Try incognito /private browsing

Check logs

What recent changes have been made?


I would recommend to check if there is a value set for the cookie domain in the configuration. Database table: core_config and than search for path like %cookie% . The cookie domain is probably referring to a different domain, I recommend to set the value to NULL

  • Do you have configured to add store code to URL? This also effects the admin panel.

In > configuration > web > Session Cookie Management:

  • Fill in the cookie path with '/' see screen shot
  • Fill in the cookie domain value with 'yourdomainname' see screen shot
  • As pontikos says I agree. You should clear out your browser cache or try another browser as well. If you are doing a lot of development and dealing with multi store or two separate environments, the cookies could clash. Might want to try this first.

(if multistore make sure you are choosing the correct website and website scope)
