I'm hoping someone can help me here.
I've just tried to install Photopost and integrate it with vBulletin. I've followed all the install script instructions and checked everything twice, but just can't seem to get it to work. In fact, the program installs, but won't recognise my Admin user name and password (which is fine with vBulletin). So for some reason, which I'm assuming has to do with the cookie seetings, I can't even log into my admin cp page.
At the Adm-index.php page I can login with any combination of name and password. Doesn't matter if I use one from vBulletin or make some up, same thing happens: I get directed to a screwed up vBulletin page with the "Go Back" and "Refresh this Page" graphics missing. Worse, If I try to login to vBulletin with my Admin name and password I get a HTTP 404 error. If I hit the "Login Problems" butten I get the screwed up vBulletin page. If I hit the "Forgot Password" button, it properly directs my to my vBulletin login page. This allows me to login normally as an administrator - but I get the following message: This user has not registered and therefore does not have a profile to view.
If I log into vBulletin normally (using my admin account) and THEN go back and call up the Adm-index.php page and try to login. I get a login successful message. However, It doesn't recognise me as an administrator, rather a regular user. This is because vBulletin is currently turned off to all but adminstrators while I try to sort all this out.
My appologies if this is long winded and all over, but I'm at a loss as to how to get this thing working. I'm reasonably sure I have the url and server paths correct.
Any advice would be appreciated.
System specs are:
Photopost PHP Pro ver 5.3
vBulletin ver 3.5.4
Servier: Unix (shared)
At this point vBulletin is turned off to the public (but open to Admin accounts).
Well I might need a url and admin account PM'd to me to determine everything but I would assume it sounds to me like on install you did not correctly enter in the config ( first step ) the proper vb license number. Also on step 4 you possibly did not set the cookie prefix in vbulletin which is normally bb. These would affect login as well. You could have also not selected the correct dropdown to integrate with vb and might be integrated with vb2 maybe. Check the first two out first by rerunning install and enter the correct vb license number and cookie prefix and try logging in again.
Edited because I will start a new thread
Do you have phpmyadmin access?
Yes - but there may be some limitations on what I can do.
Well you would need to explicitely explain each issue so I can assist or you can send phpmyadmin and I can do a quick check to see if I can spot anything wrong.
How was this resolved Chuck?
For the life of me, I can't sort this one out. I reinstalled a fresh new version of PhotoPost on my site since I'm on a new server now and I can't get into the admin panel either. Everytimg I login to it, it justs brings me back to /gallery/index.php. BUT it is showing me logged in as a user, so it shouldn't be a cookies thing. I just can't get it to decide to load the admin control panel page.
Morty do a search on cookies. You forgot to specify your vbulletin cookie password of bb on install
You can run this query in phpmyadmin to fix this or rerun install and input the proper variable
UPDATE pp_settings SET setting='bb' WHERE id=172
