Error 401 when Users Try to Login

  • loneseeker777


    WP Version: 2.6.1
    BP Version: 2.6.2

    My site is hosted by an external server, owned by WealthyAffiliates. All plugins, versions, etc., are stored on their databases.

    Issue persists with the bundled themes, too.

    Issue: After account creation and activation, the site rejects all attempts to allow login. I don’t know why this is happening. I talked to my provider, and they claim that their CDN doesn’t block users that go through the wp-login.php, so that’s not an issue.


    The new user clicks “register” on my sidebar, and is taken to a registration page. The page sends them through without issue, and sends the verification email.

    After the email is received, the account is verified and it says they’re free to login.

    Once they return to the homepage and try to sign in, however, it rejects access at the /wp-login.php page, citing an Error 401. Does anyone know a way around this?

    What I’ve tried:

    Disabling everything but BP

    Reinstalling BP

    Swapping to Twenty Fourteen

    Disabling WP synchronization with BP

    that’s a generic WordPress question. BP doesn’t handle with login authetication.
    Do you receive some php error messages when you activate wp_debug in wp-config.php ?

    Please read here for more debug advices.



    How do I access WP-config.php ? Do I enter it into my address bar as the URL code?
