Problems login backend after installation Magento

Problems login backend after installation Magento

Hello,

 

I have a problem with the login after installation Magento. 

I installed Magento on my computer (localhost) and everything looks good, untill i go to the admin-panel by clicking on 'Go to backend'. When i try to fill in my username and password i can't login to the backoffice. The fields go empty en i stay on this page.

I've tried the installation on different computers (With windows 8 and windows 10), but every time when i try to login on the backend of the localhost-website, the fields go empty en nothing happens.

I've tried also on a private chrome application, but i have the same problem...

I get a little desperate, it's my first tryout with magento and it does not go as well

 

Thanks for any help!

This problem comes up occasionally and is usually due to the cookie expiry.

Try using a different browser (other than Chrome)

You may want to try installing it in a proper server environment instead of in your own computer and it should work properly. 

 

This seem like a possible configuration issue with your configurations at the server/computer level.
