View Full Version : Cannot access AdminCP
September 25th, 2005, 09:13 PM
I have the latest PhotoPost installed and I can login to its AdminCP from VB3 without any problems. However, when I access Reviewpost, it does show me logged in until I attempt to access the AdminCP. I get the standard login screen, which I attempt to do, and it shows me successful. Only to be returned to the Reviewpost index screen, unlogged in.
Ok, I have ensured my VB3 setting is set to "bb". I have looked everywhere in Reviewposts config file for a cookie domain setting and cannot find it.
Any other suggestions?

This is cookies hands down
You will want to edit mysql settings table entries 213-215 I believe and make sure the cookie values are set correctly

That did the trick...took me a second to figure out what you were talking about but to clarify for others:
1. Using phpmyadmin, access your Reviewpost tables and go to the RP_SETTINGS table
2. Edit table 214-216. Ensure that "bb, /, and .yourdomain.com" are listed
3. Save your work and you should be good to go.
Appreciate it Omegatron!

I had a similar problem, which thanks to this thread turned out to be the same missing entry in '216' for my cookie domain. :)
Now that has changed however, the upload and admin links are still missing from my index page?
When I try to access adm-index.php directly, it tells me I am not a valid administrator or moderator.
The account I am using to test this with is the 'Admin' user from vB3, which has full admin access to everything within vB3 and my installation of PhotoPost?

Well did you enter your cookie prefix?
Is the VBlicense number not customer number entered in the config-inc.php file?
This sounds like cookies as your basically not logged in at reviewpost
You have a url?

URL : http://review.brit-cars.com
The DB entries are like this :
| 213 | Enable IP Cache Timeout | 0 |
| 214 | Reviewpost Cookie Path | / |
| 215 | Forum Cookie Prefix | bb |
| 216 | Reviewpost Cookie Domain | .brit-cars.com |
Previously, it was the cookie domain missing, and when I tried to access the admin pages it asked me to login, followed by sending me back to the index page.
Now I have added it, I am getting the login prompt, followed by the error message You are not a valid administrator or moderator!
The same vB number is entered as in the photopost config-inc file, copied and pasted in fact when I added it this morning :)

Both your Photopost and Reviewpost do not seem to have cookies set correctly.
Your cookies must be set like this in both applications
cookie path /
cookie prefix bb
cookie domain .brit-cars.com
correct vb license in config files

Yes, you are right, my photopost was incorrect... I have restored the functionality, which I probably removed when I upgraded it earlier today :)
The Review section appears to already has those cookie settings though (as shown in my last post) and an indentical vB key to the photopost and vbulletin installations - and still the same error :o
Is there any way of finding out which requirement it is failing on?
Sorry to be awkward :D

Well you can email me an admin login or set my user Omegatron as admin so I can check out how you indeed have it set
It would help to email me phpmyadmin access as well
I use VBulletin and as long as cookies are set correctly there is not a problem.
