Can't login to my admin section after clearing cookies

Can't login to my admin section after clearing cookies

I have an site that uses forms authentication to login to my admin backend. A few days ago I deleted my cookies in IE and now I cannot login. When I try it just stays on the login page.

I have been searching for an answer to this for a couple of days but can't find anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is this your site and your admin section? If so, you will have to look at the code to see what is going on.

The only thing I can say is that you will have to step through you code to see what is happening. See if there are any errors logged, if you have logging logic. you can also check in the event viewer in windows.
