Re: logging into ACP hangs firefox

Robert

I might try it anyway, as I seem to missing the purge options on the ACP page.

I will back up my phobb directory and DB before, just in case.

Thanks

Re: logging into ACP hangs firefox

Hello Steve OK, it worked!! Now, what the heck happened? Only changing the cookie name, that fixed it? Other thing, the purge options still are not there, even after fixing it. Where might they be? I have done no modifications, apart from adding the French language options and adding a few avatars/l...

Re: logging into ACP hangs firefox

Robert I will go to uploading the files again at a last resort. You say to erase all files but config.php, and the install folder. Can I safely assume that all users, permissions and other config info is in the config file? The actual messages, logos and photos in the BB are in the database? So, not...

Re: logging into ACP hangs firefox

Hello Steve

Yes, I have access to the ACP in chrome.

The cookie name in the currently is:
phpbb3_296fr

Your suggestion is to change it to:
phpbb3_12bg5

I should change it?

Re: logging into ACP hangs firefox

Thanks for the feedback. I understand the idea of doing it manually, and it not purging the sessions. Thanks. The thing is, the only reason that I mentioned this si because I do not have the purge cache option on my ACP screen. It is not there. I am using FireFox on the machine where it is not worki...

Re: logging into ACP hangs firefox

Hello

This Purge button that you speak on on the right hand side of my screen, is not there.

I stayed on the first page I see when entering ACP.

I looked all over that page, and the only thing onthe right is the links that say
admin index
board index

Nothing else.

Re: logging into ACP hangs firefox

I will look at how to do the phopmyadmin part of the insctructions.

How do I Purge sessions and Purge the cache.

How do I back up the config table? In phpmyadmin?

If so, can I just back up the whole database?

Thanks

Re: [HOW TO] Change your logo in 3.2.x

Thanks a bunch!

It can be different than that? I saw snippets of code showing different dimensions. If ours is different, we need to modify the code to allow it to display correctly?

Thanks again
