After migrating from a shared server to a VPS I am having issues setting up a clean installation of Magento 2.1. Everything seems to install fine, but when trying to sign in to the admin backend (I can put in a username and password) I end up being bought back to the exact same page.
Happy for you to completely wipe the Magento installation and start again if you think that will make a difference, but from what I can gather it would be a single setting somewhere that i'm missing; I just can't find it.
Currently our hosting has a Wordpress website sitting at the root; the Magento install will be in a sub folder.
e.g. [url removed, login to view]
Please reach out if you think you can work out what is wrong.
