Magento Admin login problem

Problem:

I had a new installation of magento. But I was unable to login as an administrator. I went to the admin login page, entered correct username and password but was redirected to the same login page. I could not enter the dashboard page. Error message is displayed when I enter wrong username or password. But nothing is displayed and I am redirected to the same login page when I insert correct username and password.

Solution:

Modify Magento code. Open app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Session/Abstract/Varien.php. Comment out the
lines 80 to 83. The line number may vary according to the Magento version. These lines are present somewhere near line 80. You have to comment the comma (,) in line:

$this->getCookie()->getPath()//,

NOTE: Editing Core File is NOT a good practice. It is better to make a local copy of core file. Copy app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Session/Abstract/Varien.php to app/code/local/Mage/Core/Model/Session/Abstract/Varien.php and edit the local file.

Update (For Magento 1.4.*) and higher versions

In Magento 1.4 and higher versions, you have to comment code below which is present around line 80 to 100 in

app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Session/Abstract/Varien.php.
