Unable to log into site (noob)

posts: 2

Hi all

I recently set up my first Tiki site. After playing around with the settings I have ended up unable to log in.
It happened after I enabled login with e-mail. First I thought I just put the wrong admin e-mail so I executed an update command on the database giving login, email and password to the admin account, but still I can't get in.

I also enabled require e-mail confirmation by new users, which was a bad idea since my friend who is hosting the site later told me that the server doesn't work with SMTP.

Please give some good advice of what to do!

My friend with the server is also saying: "I'm starting to give up on that whole user_users table. It's retarded. Fourteen different types of passwords and the hash that is generated by the md5-command does not match the user that is created."

Nothing in the prefs stick out.

So make a backup and then:

Here are 6 prefs related to logins. I suggest you delete them so the system will revert to the defaults once the cache is cleared.


Then, try running through tiki-install.php again and make sure to choose "upgrade" and not "re-install" (which will wipe your data)

The last step of the installer will clear your cache. Perhaps this will help.

Best regards,

M ;-)
