After converting to multisite- unable to login


I am installing Wordpress multisite at a domain-- I have added the lines enabling multisite to wp-config.php, and then enabled Multisite Tools->Network Setup. After that, i have added the lines of config to wp_config.php and .htaccess.

Finally, I have checked my server--> mod_rewrite is enabled.

However, now when I try to log in --> I am redirected to the login page again and again-- I get neither Login Successful, nor Login Failed messages-I see no messages, just the login screen is shown again.

What is wrong here? How do I fix this problem?

    Hi Vaughan

    The contents of htaccess are given below--

    # BEGIN WordPress
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]

    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?wp-admin$ $1wp-admin/ [R=301,L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $2 [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$ $2 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    And the contents of wp-config are given below--
