Solved Admin login failed

Post by Jackyboy on November 3rd 2011, 10:17 am

Hello,

I had my forum deactivated for a few months. Today I've restored it through



http://www.forumotion.com/en/utils/



However, when I tried to login as an 'admin', I couldn't.

I'm sure my password is correct since I was able to recover my forum.

Is there something I need to do to login as an admin so that I can access my control panel for my forum?

Thank you for the quick reply.

I have my password since I was able to recover the site. Only when I'm trying to login as an admin it doesn't let me login as an admin.

This is the message I got:


Username: Admin
Password: 'same as to restore forum'

You have specified an incorrect or inactive username, or an invalid password.

If you are 100% sure that your password is correct and username too, try with other browser. Rolling Eyes

I'm positive that my password is correct since I restored the forum with it.

I've tried about 20 times on different browser but in vain?

How is it possible that I can access the utils site with my pass word but canno login as an admin with the same password.

I just restored my forum yesterday, and was able to log in through the tools, but I also cannot log into the site... Well, at least I'm not alone...
