  • Cannot login to ACP

    I'm having trouble logging in to my admin control panel. I log in, the "thank you for logging in" message appears, and I'm brought back to the login page. I was able to login this morning, and now I can't. What could have happened?

    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.
