  • cannot log into Control Panel

    Hi there.

    I can log into my fourm, but i can't log into the admin Control panel.

    when i submit my username and password it just doesnt go anywhere and refreshes back to the admin log in page.

    I think it may have been a setting that i changed the the domain cookie field area, hence we i can log into the forum but not the admin side.

    Is there anyway to fix this?

    Yes, this is probably a cookie domain/path issue. To fix this, upload the tools.php script in the 'do_not_upload' folder of the vB zip file to your Admin CP directory and run it from your browser. Use this to reset the cookie domain and path back to the defaults. And then leave your cookie domain and path at the default settings. There is no reason to change these. If you need to specify a unique cookie, use the cookie prefix setting in config.php instead.

      Hi there,

      yeah that is what i thought.

      For some reason i dont have the 'do not upload folder' at all. Therefore no tools script to run.

      Is it possible to download the folder again from your website?

        You download the vB zip file from the Members Area:
