  • Can't Login...

    I just upgraded my forums from 3.07 to 3.6.4 and after I login into the Admin CP, accetps my login, and then sends me back to the login screen again (the top of that screen does say - Forums (This is the old forum name)
    vBulletin 3.6.4 Admin Control Panel

    Here's what I did, that might complicate things...

    1. The orginal domain was
    2. Transfered to new domain name
    3. Upgraded the forums (located on the
    4. can see the forums just fine...
    5. Login via the admincp, but it looks like it might be taking me back to
    6. Seems that every I click on the new site that it takes me back to the original domain... (ie. vbulletin options > site name)

    How do I get into the admincp??? It accepts my user/password, but then redirects back to the login screen...

    Any ideas on this????

      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.

        The tools.php thing worked like a champ... Turns out it was the orginal cookie setting still pointing to the old site...
