Login fails on 'pop up box' but logs in fine through 'admin page'

Recommended Posts


I installed oscommerce and everything was working fine however recently I have noticed that when I navigate to the admin page I am presented with a 'pop up' box which asks for my log in details. Upon entering them I am redirected to the admin login page which says it cannot login. however if I enter my login details into this page rather than the pop up box then log in is successfull

This is quite strange as the first login attempt is unsuccessfull but the second attempt on the login page rather than the dialog box is successfull?


Does anyone know what could be causing this and how to fix it?

Sounds like you have enabled .htaccess protection and/ or your cpanel directory protection and they are conflicting. Also, if you have your browser to remember the username and password and have changed it, you will need to ensure you change your browser settings.
