    Problem logging in to admincp

    A common problem but I have searched and not come across a similar problem.

    My site is hosted by a friend of mine as a subdomain on the server he uses and we have also bought an additional url that I want to use as the site address.

    When using the long url to the subdomain everything works fine, however when using the web address (which currently points to the forum directory as I haven't setup a homepage yet) it will not allow anyone to login to the admincp.

    The cookie path and domain are both set to the default settings.

    Make sure the URL listed under vBulletin Options -> vBulletin Options -> Site Name / URL / Contact Details is set to the correct location from where you want to log in from. Then have your friend set up a 301 redirect to direct everyone to that URL when they visit your site. You should be able to login without problems after that.
