Some times mediawiki gives error while trying to login saying that cookies are disabled but in most cases I have seen even in the browser side cookies are enabled properly also get this error message to resolve this please check the php.ini file and check the below line

session.use_cookies = 0

and make the value to 1
session.use_cookies = 1

restart apache and test now, users should be able to login without any problem.

Note: This issue is identified and resolved on apache 2.2/php 5x on linux machine.
