Can't login to admin section

Page navigation


I still can´t log in with OPERA, will probably be a cookie issue.
It didn´t work with MIE until I specified IP number in
$_CONF['cookiedomain'] = '10.0.0.xxx';
(as I have a LAN)

I am still having problems though, I cannot change theme,
will keep reading the FAQ

I couldn't log-in to my new install. I thought it was a cookie or a whitespace problem.

It turned out to be that I was using PHP 5 and needed to do:
Make sure you have register_long_arrays = On in your php.ini.
For compatibility with old versions of PHP 4, Geeklog relies on the "old-style" input arrays, $HTTP_POST_VARS and $HTTP_GET_VARS.

Don't forget to switch register_global = On

while you are in that file.

That solved the "can't login" problem I was having.


Yup, that's worked for me! At last, after days of trawling for help on this problem, I can finally login as admin Smile

With me, the single line that fixed it was to set:

register_long_arrays = On

in php.ini. I'm using PHP 5. Thanks webb_k - much obliged Smile

Quote by dick: Ive notice that I have to use my 24.XXX.XXX.XXX ip to login, and cannot use my domain name. I can type my domain name into the adrress bar, see my site as anon user. Then when i go to login it simply refreshes. If I go to my site via the numerical IP, everyting works fine.
I am thinking it may have something to do with Gallery. I recall it saying you had to use the same url to admin it every time. Since the new Gallery can be embedded, I think that may be it, but havnt had time or desire to look into it as of yet.

You all have the embedded gallery installed too?

*edit* logging in works fine with both IPs via Mozilla. So much for my previous idea.

in your config.php, did you use the IP address URL as the $_CONF['site_url']


edit your php.ini file (if you're using php 5) and change "register_long_arrays" to "on"
