I created a new folder and copied my database to check out CC5 and the upgrade process since I have quite a few 3rd party mods on my setup. Everything went well after I modified the global.inc.php in the includes folder to work with the new database and database user (not wanting any mistakes and writing over my live site's database), but I cannot get into the admin panel. It lets me send an email and I click the link to change it, and that all works very nicely. When I enter my new password, it puts me at the login screen with the red bar at the top telling me

The following errors were detected:

Invalid Username and/or Password

That is great, I just told it what password I would like to use, and it tells me I either don't exist or my password is wrong before I get a chance to even try it. Trying it produces the same results. An endless loop that I have done 4 times before posting here. I have no idea what the problem is now.

I had this issue and reported it to the bug tracker. Try removing the salt value for your admin user in the database and then attempt to login.

Thanks! had to reset it again and change it, then let it tell me it was wrong, then wipe out the salt table for admin users > my name, and I am in:) Now I can see how this is going to work out:)
