I've imported a copy of the live db to my new dev site using sequel pro. I've had to use this tool as the db has some errors in (duplicate SKU's) and we're trying to fix them, but not on the live server!
I'm not sure what the issue is, but the symptoms are as follows.
http://sitename:8888/admin for the admin login. fill out the username and password. hit login. and it redirects me straight back to the login page.
If I intentionally get the password wrong, it gives me the red error box. So I know I'm geting the password right, because there is no error box. However the admin section doesn't load. Is there an admin setting somewhere in the config stored in the db that I need to reset?.
