  • [Forum] Unable to login as user or admin after changing Site URL

    This morning I changed my VB4.08 site from URL_NAME1.org to URL_NAME2.org.

    I updated my license information in vbulletin.com, and I changed anything within admincp that said URL_NAME1 to URL_NAME2, such as website address, CMS title, etc.

    Everything was working fine for the last 3-hours. But, now I can't log in anymore.

    When i go to admincp, modcp or usercp, I successfully log in and then it redirects me back to the empty login screen.

    Please help!

    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.
