Solved Can't access Admin panel

Post by bwhite on June 30th 2011, 6:59 pm

Whenever I try to access the admin panel, it asks me to "re-authenticate" as usual, except now, when I do, instead of loading the admin panel, it actually logs me out of the forum :-s

Lol, now that's pretty funny. Razz

Please try accessing your admin panel by using the forum utilities. You'll need your founding credentials which are the email and password that you used when you first created your forum.

Once you've logged in, please use the 'direct connection to admin panel' tool. For the utilities, please see this link: http://www.forumotion.com/en/utils/

My God, when will eToxic fix this idiotic end-of-the month cookie bug?

Here we are, the last day of the month. There are again problems with admin panels that use authentication. There are again problems with remaining logged into forums. It is NOT a security issue. It is a bug in the PHP cookie script.

PLEASE FIX IT!

In the meantime, everyone, the bug will go away tomorrow, so at least you only have to live with the problem for a few hours. Until July 31st, when the bug returns. Evil or Very Mad

log in to admin panel, when asked to re-authenticate, just enter your admin details and you should redirect to the admin panel..

Thank you! Considering that this morning, someone from eToxic used the "back door" to access my board as the founder, I'd say your message got through. Razz

I don't think you read what he wrote. He cannot access the Admin panel regardless of what he does. Anyway, I should let the staff members handle this. Cause I also had the same problem, but I just kept on putting in my details, logging in and off. Eventually it fixed itself.

it's not a bug. but every end of the month we disconnect our forums sessions to force their users to identify themselves again. that's for security reasons.

this is not a bug and it's not an idiot as you say but thank you for the compliment ...it is our security policy and you have already agreed to when creating your forum
