Not Found
The requested URL /forum/admin/login.php was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


it has something to do that it redirects to some forum/admin/login.php?redirect=admin/index.php&admin=1&sid=de918d9ae4b752256af0c19234a47139

You just reduced security on your forum. This is not the correct fix. But with an attitude like that I am sure you dont care.

The correct fix is to upload a new copy of function.php, you have modifed the redirect function, which is cuasing your issue.

Also keep in mind, everyone here is a volunteer. Somtimes posts get lost in the hundreds posted everyday. With a little understanding you will get help.

a lil understanding?
i understand it takes time
but to have a problem since may which is 6 months ago and noone replies with a fix well i think u would have to comment on that aswell

if u knew it was functions.php u woulda replied that in my last post instead of telling me i need the new cookie .16 mod which did not work either.

none the less thanx for ur time in reading my problem and attempting to help out, i do appreciate it when someone actually tries to help out..
