Solved: 3 Years, 1 Month, 3 Weeks ago Cannot log in as Admin
Solved: 3 Years, 1 Month, 3 Weeks ago

I have had a MyBB Forum up and running for about 12 months. For various reasons it has had very little use.

It would now appear that I, as "Admin", cannot log into it!

Obviously I have applied as "Admin" to update my password. I get the message that it has been updated etc. But it doesn't work! I cannot log in to Admin's CP.

I have used the host (1and1) for other websites including one with a database (my design) and there appears to be a significant difference. The simple database table "users" just has username, password and access. The MyBB "users" database has has a lot more records but the important bits appear to be "uid", "username", "password", "salt" and "loginkey".

I'm happy with the records for uid and username but the passwords listed do not relate to the actual passwords (all of which I have allocated).

I'm not too worried about how any password encryption works, but I would like to be able to log in as admin and try and get the site working again.

All help and suggestions would be much appreciated and please ask any questions that you need to.

Many thanks

Does it not work as in there's an error, or you just go back to being logged out? Your URL would be of use if it is the latter.

Thanks for your replies.

I have just repeated the exercise.

The error was not with the website - it was with me - linking up the wrong user names with the wrong passwords Lightbulb 

Sorry to have been a nuisance, but thanks anyway, you made me concentrate and solve it for myself.  Smile
