You may be irritated because of Magento just denying your access and not getting login to magento admin panel when running in localhost, though you provided the right username and password.

Ok How to fix Magento‘s Admin Login Problem . The fix is Pretty simple

1. Just copy your base url …. Eg :
2. Find the table named core_config_data and update the following values of these two paths

a. web/unsecure/base_url  as
b. web/unsecure/base_url  as

(Kindly note : In this table there are 5 fields, what you need to do is find the fields named path and value. And replace the default value for the corresponding path fields mentioned above with your baseurl Http://   ) You can also use any IP address instead of…

After this Just Locate the file varien.php found in


and copy the file inside the local folder


Create the same folder structure inside app / code / local before you copy varien.php

And find these lines

if (isset($cookieParams['domain'])) {  $cookieParams['domain'] = $cookie->getDomain();  } 

And replace with

if (isset($cookieParams['domain']) && !in_array("", self::getValidatorData())) {  $cookieParams['domain'] = $cookie->getDomain();  } 

thatz all now you can login as an admin…

But don’t get satisfy with this fix just read the below lines why magento denied your admin access while you’re running in localhost….

Because Magento doesn’t create any cookie when you’re trying to login in your localhost, since its not a real domain….

Don’t forget to clear the cache (Its better to disable it for development environment)
