Admin Panel - Suddenly can't access

Post by kalten »

All of the sudden as of yesterday I can not get into my admin panel. Every time I click the link I just get taken to the Forum Index.

- Using version 2.0.15
- Haven't made ANY changes in last couple months
- Started happening yesterday - same day 2.0.17 was released
- Can login/logout with no problems
- I still have admin type mod rights
- No other errors

it could have something to do with cookies or the like, try clearing that out, and trying again.

everything else seems to be working alright...just can't change anything..:)

It doesn't even take me to the login screen. Just refreshes the forum index.

Any other ideas? I didn't change anything to make this happen. It just suddenly stopped working the day .17 came out. :(

I am having the exact same problem after updating from 2.0.15 to 2.0.17 today.

Even when I type in the address to the Admin panel manually I am sent back to the Forum index.

Hi all, im getting this problem today and am trying to troubleshoot it.

Im trying to establish if it s a phpbb update thing or cpanel file update

I only changed bbcode.php today and im 99.9% sure that the admin cp was available after the change....

Maybe cpanel updated files on my server around the time when things went pearshaped for me.

Here is a strange thought. Since I haven't messed with anything to cause this...and since it happened on the same day .17 came out....does anyone think it could have something to do with the little check thing that checks to see if you have the most current version?

Are the devs aware that it's an IE thing? Is there a fix out?

I am having the same exact scenario: try to select the Admin Panel and it just dumps me back to the main forum.

Any ideas? I had the same thing happen after upgrading from v2015 to v2016. Was hoping that upgrading to v2017 would fix this, but it's the same situation.

Would REALLY appreciate some help here. Seems I'm not the only one.
thanks in advance,
