Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,
I have spent some time trying to install an old private forum some friends and I first started back in 2002 on my web server. I am running PHP 5.6 and MySQL 5.0.11. The old forum was version 2.0.22 and I have the latest 3.2.5 code base. I uploaded the old code and database to my server, installed phpBB3 and ran the converter. The database itself looks good. I can the user list, forums, posts and the like. However, when I attempt to login it either tells me the password is wrong, or simply loops back on itself with no feedback. The password is definitely correct. When I attempt to go through the password recovery phase, the response is "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again."
Any insight provided is much appreciated. I should mention the existing forum is not on my server but I uploaded the data and files to mine for the converter to reference.
