Could not login on new install
This isn't really a queation... just some feedback for others that might be having problems.
I just installed a new first time installation.
External forum Invision.
Install was fine - no errors.
At first, got "server problems" and it finally went away. I'm thinking "good... I'm ready to set this thing up".
Wrong... could not login. I was able to see the main index.php page but could not login no matter what username I tried. I went thru the cookies scenario round and round to no avail.
Started debugging the code... in the forums ib and ib2 files, I stuck a few "prints" at various places.
Found the problem... during installation, it asks for a prefix for the user database... it says to "leave blank if default".
This was the culprit. The default is "ibf_" and [should] have put the "ibf_" in front of the table names. The "print" statements showed that it was not.
I went back, re-installed, and then time put the "ibf_" for the prefix, and everything started working.
I should have known something was wrong because the initial screen showed 0 members, and it should have been 100,000+.
