    Login Loop

    I installed the latest vBulletin software (as a test board) yesterday, and it was working fine until today when I went to login to the ACP. It logged me in fine, and I got the message saying I'd been logged in, but then it took me back to the ACP login page again.

    I tried this in Opera and Firefox (latest versions), after clearing my caches and cookies and restarting these browsers. The problem still persists.

    My board is unmodded. It's just the stock software. What can I do to solve the problem?

    Please upload tools.php from the 'do_not_upload' folder of your vBulletin distribution to your admincp directory. Now point your browser to tools.php.

    Reset the cookie Domain and Path to the default values.

    Once your problem is fixed please remove tools.php again from the server.

      I did this and it is still looping... it asks me to enter my customer number (which I double checked), and then loops me back to the same customer number screen after I click the button.

      EDIT: I deleted the ?do=login part at the end of the address and it took me to the tools page where I performed the operations you described... I'm now logged into the ACP. Thank you.
