Admin Password

Post by David Addis » Tue Oct 02, 2018 11:58 am

I have entered my details and password on installation, when I log out and try and log in I am unable to do so, really frustrating as I have to down load, set up new data base each time. Do I have to do additional things when managing my user account

More often than not such issues are cookie related.

Can we have a link to your board

Once you've done whatever it is you're doing and have a working board please fill out the Support Request Template and post it back here to enable us to assist you better. Why are you waiting for a db to be set up? It only takes a minute. How are you installing, what documentation are you following?

There are no ‘threads’ in phpBB, they are topics.

You don't say whether you are using our files, or an installer provided by your host.
The host installs often have problems with the admin password.
