  • admincp redirects back to admincp login screen 3.0.7

    Greetings!

    I have seen other folks have this issue, but the resolution is not posted ! <:-(

    So, to copy from another post.... here is my problem (in IE and FireFox):

    I just installed 3.0.7 and found that I cannot log into the admincp. it accepts my login info and says successfull login but then redirects me back to the login page...

    Deleting cookies makes no difference.

    Help!

    That sounds as if you weren't set up as an Administrator.
    Is this the account you created when installing vBulletin?

      Upload the tools.php script in the 'do_not_upload' folder of the vB zip file to your Admin CP directory. 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.

        No no no. That is not the problem here.

        The problem is that when we upgraded from 3.0.1 to 3.0.7, something in the admincp got screwed up.

        The upgrade to 3.0.7 screwed up the admincp. The upgrade to 3.0.7 was VERY messy, required Steve at jelsoft to be involved in a big way.

        Running on linux.

          My cookie story has _never_ been modified.

          It is clear that the 3.0.7 upgrade screwed something up. After upgrading to 3.0.7 our whole vbulletin server was down for some time while you helped me put it back together. We never tried the admincp until recently and discovered that it had never worked since the 3.0.7 upgrade.

          Are the above steps appropriate in this situation?

            Is your admincp directory non standard?

              It is as standard as can be.

              The 3.0.7 update broke the admincp.

              (The 3.0.7 update broke the entire site, and we only noticed now that admincp was broken all this time)

                What were you running before 3.0.7 ? and I mean are you using the directory admincp and is it defined in your config.php

                  You need to upload the 3.0.7 admincp files to whichever directory you've established in config.php. It also woudn't hurt to follow my suggestion posted earlier.

                      Yes, I am using the admincp dir that is configured in the config.php $admincpdir param.

                        This was done as part of the 3.0.7 upgrade. I can see all the files there are the 3.0.7 files.
