The code looks ok.

Upload a new template/overall_footer.html file for the style you're using.

Then open the cache folder and delete everything except index.htm and htaccess.

If it doesn't show up then you've lost your admin permissions somewhere.

Are you the only administrator on the board?

if you go to http://www.newswithfreedom.com/foro/adm/ are you able to login?

You can't get to the admin panel like that anyway.

In phpmyadmin, run the following, which will create an admin user named admin1 with a password of admin. From that point you should be able to get into the ACP. Change your table prefix if it is not phpbb_.

Code: Select all

INSERT INTO phpbb_users (user_type, group_id, username, username_clean, user_regdate, user_password, user_email, user_lang, user_style, user_rank, user_colour, user_posts, user_permissions, user_ip, user_birthday, user_lastpage, user_last_confirm_key, user_post_sortby_type, user_post_sortby_dir, user_topic_sortby_type, user_topic_sortby_dir, user_avatar, user_sig, user_sig_bbcode_uid, user_from, user_icq, user_aim, user_yim, user_msnm, user_jabber, user_website, user_occ, user_interests, user_actkey, user_newpasswd) VALUES (3, 5, 'Admin1', 'admin1', 0, '21232f297a57a5a743894a0e4a801fc3', 'admin@yourdomain.com', 'en', 1, 1, 'AA0000', 1, '', '', '', '', '', 't', 'a', 't', 'd', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '');

As soon as you have done this, use the temporary admin account to update the details on the original admin account, then delete the temporary account.
This is because:
  1. anyone could use that account to log in to your board if you didn't change the password.
  2. this temporary user has not been fully set up (e.g. it is not a member of the "Registered users" group, so it won't have normal access to your forums).

Hey guys, I found the real problem here. I have two accounts. SamyCode is the site admin, not AKS as I thought. Well, SamyCode IS the site adm (it's another account of me) and if you log in in my forum with another account and you go and see the members, then you notice that SamyCode is marked as the forum adm. Ok, I was happy but NOW :oops: when I try to log in with that account it wont accept the password. I already tried to use the forgot password link and it says "wrong user name or password" with each and every single email that I put. Why I can't log in?!?!?

Sure you're not confusing the passwords of the accounts?

Anyway you can create another account with that query i posted. That will allow you to get to the admin panel and set a password for the real account.
