phpBB install question
I am having a problem with a phpBB install.
MySQL with one user one db access, but the user has admin rights in that db.
Install seemed to go well, but I couldn't login to the admin section after running the install script.
Already ruled out:
I know it's pretty obscure so thanks in advance
you are saying that you cant log into the admin section of phpbb right? If thats the case, does the browser that u tried logging into from have cookies enabled?
I should have put that in my already ruled out section.
I also tried it with other browsers. But, I was on Win 2000. I don't know if that makes a difference.
so ur on the admin login page of phpbb and you type in ur username and password (ur sure they match the username and password u made when you were installing phpbb?) and what happens when u click Log In?
The uname and password are good as far as I can tell. The password is encrypted in the database, but I reinstalled a few times to be sure.
What happens is that I get the login screen again. I get the error message about needing to have cookies turned on. And thats it.
But, I checked the cookie folder and the cookie is there.
Thanks for the help.
You might want to change your cookiedomain in config.php and make it blank or change it from and to www.yourdomain.com or yourdomain.com and see what happens. :)
hmm, well to tell u the truth i dont know what else to do, try what iFroggy suggested. If that doesnt work try going to the phpbb forums, i know this is a common problem so they should be able to help :)
Also, what I mean by "make it blank" is this:
$cookiedomain = ""
Also, you may be better off asking for help at http://www.phpbbhacks.com/forum (my site). My team is made up of the best phpBB hackers around. :)
Thanks for all the help. Sorry I didn't get back to this thread sooner.
I tried everything that was suggested and had no luck. The message boards on phpBB had a few threads with the same question, but no answers. So I am going to try another bb system.
