V3.01 Admin Logon error

9 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

 

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

Hi Emile..

 

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

 

Thanks,

Hmm Yes I used a "&" in my pass. Will try with more normal pass :-)

Thanks for the tip, keep you updated :-)

Hi Emile..

 

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.

 

Kind regards,

Well it works with a simple password indeed. Ill check the php.ini file.

 

Thanks!

 

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

Hi Emile..

 

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

Hi Emile..

 

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.
