So over the course of the weekend I've battled my way through and resolved the majority of issue's. I'm still of the opinion that the installer should set this up and would over come these issue's! Why we have to run around in PHP-Myadmin and edit settings blindly (with no real manual available) is beyond me!
The one remaining issue I have is getting access to the Admin panel. I can post adds, redirect where-ever I want. VB3 Integration is good.....but NO Admin panel. Cookies settings are right, I've run the Query in PHP MYadmin as recommended in a previous thread, downloaded a cookie manager and delete all cookies after checking their paths. I can do everything EXCEPT get into the admin panel!
I'm not gunna mention the S word, but I will be seriously considering my options in other area's! This is not an off the shelf download as advertised!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
