Hi it may be issue with cookies domain .check your cookie domain .c Cookie domain was set at old domain


Do you really get the notification of wrong user/pass often after moving the site i get similar issues, but then without any notification "assuming" that its the user pass but in reality its due to sessions not able to write.

and check your cookie domain or cookie settings

  • Hi Kay, Thanks a lot for reply. YEs I got invalid user and pass. Instead of trying to search some solutions, I just created another database. problem solved. – Baby in Magento Oct 16 '14 at 5:51
