You can try to make a new admin account:
viewtopic.php?f=64&t=2437826#p14820691
I tried that, but still couldn't log in with the new account.

Then I tried another machine, and found that I CAN log in on another machine, with either the temporary admin account (now deleted) or my original admin account. This has allowed me to enable the board at least.

So it seems this is specific to one machine. Is it possible that if I was logged in to my old forum when I did the conversion, that it could now be stuck thinking I'm still half logged in or something? Even with the board enabled I still can't log in on this machine.

I also can't register a new account on this machine. It keeps saying "The confirmation code you entered was incorrect", even when I'm sure it's right. Tried on another machine and it worked straight away. So it's all about this machine. Some setting that's got stuck maybe?

I tried truncating the phpbb_sessions table, but it didn't change anything.

Now that the board's enabled, the behaviour is as follows:
  • On other (good) machine, click login, enter details, takes me to the forum boards, and shows my username in top right corner.
  • On main (bad) machine, click login, enter details, takes me to the forum boards, but shows login link in top right corner.
I put in some diagnostics, and both machines seem to log in OK to begin with. In the login_box() function, status is LOGIN_SUCCESS, $user->data['is_registered'] is true, $auth->acl_gets('a_', 'm_') is true, the username & password are correct. This is in the if ($result['status'] == LOGIN_SUCCESS) branch, just before it redirects back to the main page. So I guess after that it is logging me out again for some reason.

I'm stuck again, any ideas? How can I hack the PHP code to track this down?

sounds like the machine you cant login with needs to have the cache/cookies cleared for your board.

I had done this earlier, but I just tried again. Deleted everything in /cache/ other than .htaccess & index.htm, and clicked on "Delete all board cookies". Alas hasn't made a difference. When I try to log in, it still just goes back to the main page with the "login" link in the corner instead of my username.

What else can I clear? Is there something in the database maybe?

Did you clear the cache from your browser?

Using a other browser is also a good method.

Physically make sure the cookies have been removed from your browser and do a reload of your browser (ctrl + f5 for most_.

I would also try using another browser on that machine

SOLVED! Yeah I just clicked on the forum link to delete cookies, but deleting them via the browser options worked. I can finally log in! Awesome, many thanks.

Got to wonder what the root problem was. I tried this months ago and gave up, and also tried it multiple times recently. Each time, I could log in before the conversion from phpbb 2.0.22, but not after. Surely there's a bug here somewhere.

Thanks everyone!

Yes probably in the browser. Cache/cookies can cause minor hiccups from time to time.
