I need urgent help as to how to log into my admin page. Everything is working fine after migration but admin page refuses to log me in. I have tried so many suggestions here. But not is working for me. I use Magento V2.2.3

  • any error in logs? what is the error message you are getting during login? Commented Apr 2, 2018 at 5:04
  • No error log or message. It just rolls and stops with cleared form values.. basically just refreshes.

Directly in database, Edit web/secure/base_url in core_config_data table.

Please set HTTP instead of https.

I hope this will work for you.


I opened app/etc/env.php file and changed the name of the shop backend .

'backend' => [ 'frontName' => 'new_admin_backend_name' ]

Should clear up anything related to the old backend name.


In my case I had a cookie domain set to the new host name.

I managed to correct this with the following steps on database level:

UPDATE core_config_data
SET value='new-domain.example.com'
WHERE path = 'web/cookie/cookie_domain';

And then it worked! Thanks for the hint @Kalyan Chakravarthi V


Check for the following path in the core_config_data table. They should have the correct URL.


I changed my base urls with: php bin/magento setup:store-config:set --base-url="http://new_url/" then cleared cache with php bin/magento cache:flush

I tried to log in to admin but no success. Then I tried to change web/secure/base_url to http manually in the database but this did not had any effect also.

What helped in the end was the answer from Bradley saying to change app/etc/env.php file and change the name of your admin url. I was then able to log in to backend.

'backend' => [ 'frontName' => 'new_admin_backend_name' ]
