Why does WordPress keep logging us out again and again

Before understanding why WordPress keeps logging out to you, it is very important for you to understand this. That’s how the WordPress login process works. Friends, WordPress sets a cookie in your browser to authenticate your login session.

This cookie is set for the WordPress URL stored in your settings section. So that if you are accessing it from a URL that does not match your WordPress settings. So WordPress will not be able to authenticate your session.

As you can see in the screenshot of the settings both the WordPress URL and the Site Address URL are two different URLs. As you can see in the screenshot that there is no www in the first URL, while www is present in the second URL.

How to Fix Login Issues in WordPress

This is the simplest way to fix the login issue in WordPress. That you have to make sure that both your website address and WordPress address field are the same in WordPress settings. So it simply means that you should either use www in the URL of both fields or you should use the non-www URL in both.

To do this setup, first, you have to log in to your WordPress dashboard. After that you have to go to Settings >> General in your WordPress dashboard and click on it.

Friends, if for some reason you are not able to access your WordPress admin area. So you need to update your admin area through the wp-config.php file.

First of all, you have to connect your website using an FTP client. After that, you have to locate the wp-config.php file in your website’s root directory. Now you have to download this file to your desktop.

After downloading, you have to open that file in any one text editor like Notepad. After that, you have to copy the code given below and add it just above the line. That’s all you had to do, now you can continue your blogging.


Apart from this, friends, if you want to use www in your site address and WordPress address. Then for this, after copying the codes given below, you have to paste it just above the line.


You have to take special care of this thing while adding and saving the code. Before saving the settings, remove the name of our website from the code and add the full name of the website we have shown you.

Many of you users may think this or ask us why this method works. That is, how do we solve this error by changing WordPress and site URL addresses?

So the answer is very simple friends that technically www is a subdomain in itself. This simply means that www and URL without it is actually two different domains or react like them.

So when we change these two different URLs and update them to the same address, then this issue gets fixed immediately. So hopefully you must have understood the whole process described in this article correctly and well.
