Cant log into ACP

Post by Earthcoder » Wed Feb 18, 2009 12:41 pm

The following is the basic SRT
Your board's URL: www.dustfront.net/forum or http://www.dustfront.net/forums
(forums main install) (forum used in joolma script)
Version of phpBB3: phpBB 3.0.4
New install
Did you use an automated wizard provided by your host to install phpBB? NO!
MODs you have installed: none
When the problem started: today
Your level of expertise (be honest): medium


Template(s) used: Rockettheme dimensions
Language(s) used: Engish


Problem wont let me log into the ACP

I get the following:
must re-authenticate yourself.
So i put details in
then i get
Information
You have successfully authenticated and will now be redirected to the Administration Control Panel.

Proceed to the ACP


then click proceed to the ACP comes back to re-authenticate again.


I checked cookies with cookie.php

.dustfront.net
phpbb3_jnejn
/

script path: /forums
serv name: http://www.dustfront.net
port 80
http://


Background info, It has been intergated with Joomla, the log in has been working untill today
I have reset IE settings and FF settings still gets same message.

Admin funtions work fine in site but just cant access ACP

did have error saying no permissions once but that seems to gone away after IE/ff reset

Via fTP try deleting all the files in the cache folder except the .htaccess and index.html files. You stated you used a 'one click' install provided by your host, is that correct?

sometimes i log in and after re-auth it logs me out saying

"Access to the Administration Control Panel is not allowed as you do not have administrative permissions."

Any ideas?

Change your cookie settings from /forums to /forum
The box said 'You need Windows XP or better' .... so I installed linux.

Should change cookie settings after ACP access is restored.

Could be a style issue. You need to change your cookie settings from / to /forum

I keep having this issue too. My forums and acp worked just fine last night, but today they won't let me log in.

I could login using /index.php?style=2 and that let me in.

However, I finally changed the cookie from / to /forum. Hopefully it will stop happening then...
