I know this topic has been covered before but my issue is slightly different.
I used t be able to login fine by apending /admin to the end of my sites url.
Now, for some reason today its stoped working and sends me to a page not found error?!
Very strange, I haven't changed anything and all was working fine yesterday.
So instead of using the /admin path I used the full /Security/login path which takes me to the correct login screen.
I inserted my login details and when I try to login it just says 'Welcome Back, Chris'.
Does anyone know what the issue could be with this?
Thanks in advance.

I'm having this same problem. When I go to the login page and try to login, I can't login, but if I try again it says I'm already logged in... then I have to click on the CMS link in the bottom right to actually get to the CMS. I also can't save or publish anything to the published site, it's like an endless saving loop.

i've emptied my cache and deleted all cookies but i still have the same problem.
i've read somewhere that if a user is logged in and the session times out without them logging out - problems can occur with the login process??
anybody else had this (or the redirect) problem?
anybody know the solution?

Aaaack! I've had a similar experience.
The CMS loaded fine. My custom template took and I entered content. Then one day (the day I was going to show the site to my client, natch), the /admin page went wonky.
It says, "Enter your email address and password to access the CMS," but the form fields have vanished, so it's impossible to login. Same thing at /Security/login.
Sometimes in IE6(!) I'll see the form and be able to log in. But never in Firefox. I work on a PC, my client uses a Mac. He hasn't been able to edit any of his content. I have to do it for him (when I can locate a login form).
I'm more of a front-end (xhtml / css) guy with some (very) basic understanding of the back-end. Anyone have any ideas?

Have you got a $Form varible in your custom Page.ss template - this is where the login form renders to
but if I try again it says I'm already logged in
There was a bug with the login form not correctly redirecting a user after logging in but I believe that should have been fixed. Maybe not

You hit it on the head; the $Form variable was missing.
Login works fine now.

My original problem still exists.
I've had to resort to working directly on the demo server because I cannot log into my local site anymore.

If you go to /admin and it gives a 404 then you should make sure a) a cms folder exists and there is a cms/_config.php with the correct director rule - something like 'admin/$Action/$ID/$OtherID' => 'CMSMain', should be in the list
