V3.01 Admin Logon error
Posted 14 April 2011 - 19:28
Scoured the forums for a solution but found none that worked for me sofar (
I've installed a fresh install on my local webserver (Apache 2.2, PHP 5.5.3, MySQL 5.5.11)
All works fine except for the error I recieve when logging into the admin section :
Error: Identification of the store administrator failed. Please try again if you have been authorized to use this system.
Now I checked via PHPMyAdmin the hash of the password. Checked it against HashCalc MD5, got a diffent hash.
So removed the pass altogether in osc_administrators table, nogo, same error. As if it does not even check...
Do I need to setup some special folder permissions on the ftp side, or am I missing something.
Hope others have seen the issue and found a solution )
Thanks in advance

Did you use any special characters for your password? Can you re-install and try again with a simple password?

Thanks for the tip, keep you updated )

If it works with a simple password you may have magic_quotes_gpc enabled in php.ini. This is a deprecated setting and should be disabled.
If this is true for your case, please disable it, restart your webserver, and you can continue with a stronger password.

Update : Just checked my php.ini. It was turned off..

That's strange! I will check this and confirm back with you.

I can confirm this bug. It only happens during the installation procedure. Changing the administrator password using the Admin -> Configuration -> Administrators application performs as normal.
I am looking into the issue now.
