ok, we are after moving databases and... it doesn't work :)

i dumped mysql database (mysqldump) at old server and put it on new
server. i also copied plugins and themes folder (images for this
moment wasnt moved)

everything looks great except of wp-admin which we cannot achieve.
when i try to log in, i write there login and password, click to log
in and wordpress again shows me login page

if i put wrong password it shows me info that password was wrong. this
must be some problem with session but why and what?
