Hi Wesley, Carlos,
We'd very much appreciate that you both took the time to report details about this issue. We captured this in the Trello ticket: https://trello.com/c/FLlynVZm
This issue was closed in another thread on 2/4/2014, please see ticket for details. May a known already, but just in case Wesley, or others finding this thread through a search, didn't see that one, we wanted to post follow-up here, too, and a "Big thanks!".
As for documentation, we decided to add this to our wiki for now (cookies were unique to this issue). More concerning trouble-shooting in the wiki is gaining traction (new page/s) .. community contributions welcomed! https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Admin/GetGalaxy#Troubleshooting

When trying to register a new user (which will be the administrator), the registration page declare success ("Now logged in as foo") but I am still just an anonymous user. If I try to login, it appears to succeed but I'm still anonymous. If I purposely enter the wrong password, the system complains as it should but I never get proper credentials.
I have seen this several time in my local install and is always a cookie's problem. Please delete all cookies for you galaxy hostname and try again.
I wonder if the wiki should have a FAQ section and this cookie's issue should be at the top.
Hope it helps, Carlos
