Problem Loading Log In Page After Updating to 1.7

Updated to 1.7 Monday night and am now having problems with logging in.

When users try to log in from any page on my site, they receive an error message at wp-login.php:

“The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few


If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network


If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure

that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.”

Error happens with both Firefox and IE. Refreshing the page doesn’t work. You have to hit enter from the URL in the browser for the page to load correctly. Once the page loads correctly, the users can log in.

I disabled my plug-ins and still have the problem. I’ve also disabled my plug-ins, switched to the BP Default theme and still have the problem.

I’ve posted this on the BuddyPress Support forum but haven’t received any help so thought I’d reach out here, too.

Thanks much!
