why I could not login to jira (5.1.8)

When I tried to login to jira (version5.1.8), the screen stay on the same login screen, keep asking me to login, checked jira-security log, it actually passed the authentication but then seems some anonymous session then created. Anyone can help?

This is a test instance and it was OK last week, on the weekend we have the server restarted, not sure what's going wrong? The following are the message from jira security log:

/rest/gadget/1.0/login The user 'XXXXXX' has PASSED authentication.

Clear browser cache. Looks like a cookie issue to me. Or use a incognito window to test first.

Thanks, Renjith. After clear all browser cache, it works now.

Do you also use CROWD ?

We don't use CROWD for JIRA, but our confluence use jira user management
