2 logins to Go to Administration Panel & smtp problem?

Post by icerx » Wed Jul 20, 2005 6:01 pm

I did a fresh install of php 2.0.17.

Problem 1:
When I login with my admin account when I click on Go to Administration Panel I get the login screen again.


Problem 2:
When I try to send an email using the board I get

Could not connect to SMTP host : 4 :

DEBUG MODE

Line : 111
File : smtp.php

I checked the settings & they are the same that I used in phpbb 2.0.16.


I am able to repeat these problems every time. I also deleted all my files & emptied my database & did another fresh install & same thing.

Hi,

Yes, you need to re-authenticate when accessing the Admin CP.
Hence the second log-in...

You should check your mail serttings.
Also try with either the user name or the password for the account.

Hope this helps,

Des. . . :wink:

The two logins to the admin panel was an added security feature. It prevents people who might have hacked your board and stolen the automatic login cookie access to your admin panel, because they still need to have your password. :).

Two:Did that error appear after the upgrade?

I am still having problems using SMTP in phpBB 2.0.17 I have another server using phpBB 2.0.16 & SMTP works 100% with the same setting that I have in phpBB 2.0.17. I thought maybe there was a conflict of using the same account more than once so I removed my account from the older server & I still get the same error.
