Not Solved Cannot get past my Dashboard
#1
Not Solved
  • Yesterday I installed MyBB on a new CPanel purchased on my GoDaddy account. 
  • I was able to set it up and complete all the new style configurations so that the overall look/theme was perfect. 
  • I attempted to view my website, (where this new MyBB forum would be embedded) and realized that I had created a domain pointing & security issue since the full site resides on the servers with Livebooks.com; and the new MyBB forum resides on the servers with GoDaddy. (This issue also triggered browser security warnings and the website would no longer load.)
  • I contacted GoDaddy support and we created a new subdomain for the MyBB forum. Now the website loads properly. However, when I log into the Forum Admin Panel, I can get no further than the Dashboard. Clicking onto any link (i.e., Configuration) results in me getting kicked out to the login page which repeatedly clears and requests my Username and Password each time I enter them. 
  • I have been going through the previous posts on this subject and one person gave a partial answer as a resolution. I hope that someone can give me full and comprehensive instructions on how to get past this hick-up. 
Thank you in advance for any help you folks can offer.

iFrames = I'm not certain whether or not Livebooks uses iFrames. Embedding the forum is not really my focus since I haven't gotten that far yet. I'm just trying to complete the setup for the forum itself at the moment. I had a forum that was working perfectly, but it was being hosted through WebsiteTools.com and they were charging me $79/mo.  Now being stuck at home due to the health crisis, I have no income and they shut the forum down for none payment. So I was forced to find a free solution. 

Forum url = http://network.thequeerhaven.com/

After changing the domain or path, the relevant cookie settings need to be adjusted.

If this is the case, in order to change them, find a way to open and edit ./inc/settings.php and edit the new values into the file. Then, you MUST go to 'ACP > Configuration > General Configuration' and make the change here too. This is because although editing the file will make you able to log in, the settings aren't updated in the database, and when you next save any settings in the ACP, the old settings will come back.

The values to look for in the file are cookiedomain and cookiepath.

first change values of cookie domain & cookie path in /inc/settings.php file
$settings['cookiedomain'] = ".network.thequeerhaven.com";
$settings['cookiepath'] = "/";

then you should be able to log into forum admin panel.
again put those correct values at Site Details page of Configuration section

Quote:Cookie Domain => .network.thequeerhaven.com
Quote:Cookie Path => /

Devilshakerz,

Thank you, thank you for your response. I downloaded the settings.php and opened it up in the CoffeeCup HTML editor. I had already made the following edits:

["cookiedomain"] = "www.network.thequeerhaven.com"
["bburl"] = "http://network.thequeerhaven.com"
["homeurl"] = "http://www.network.thequeerhaven.com"

but I'm uncertain what to change the ["cookiepath"] to, since it currently set at:
["cookiepath"] = "/MyBB"

Devilshakerz,

Thank you, thank you for your response. I downloaded the settings.php and opened it up in the CoffeeCup HTML editor. I had already made the following edits:

["cookiedomain"] = "www.network.thequeerhaven.com"
["bburl"] = "http://network.thequeerhaven.com"
["homeurl"] = "http://www.network.thequeerhaven.com"

but I'm uncertain what to change the ["cookiepath"] to, since it currently set at:
["cookiepath"] = "/MyBB"

Actually, after reading your responses, I was able to see the correction you suggested for cookiepath and made the edit to simply "/". However, I still cannot access anything past the dashboard. I also tried using a different browser with no success. I cannot change the information in General configurations if I can't access that portion of the program. Sad

$settings['homeurl'] = "http://www.network.thequeerhaven.com/";
$settings['cookiedomain'] = "www.network.thequeerhaven.com";
$settings['cookiepath'] = "/";

But still not able to get past the dashboard to the Configurations page

Understood. I edited it again and took out the three www's. But I still can't access anything. I'm getting the same results. Using different browsers, I still can't get past the Dashboard page. Sad
