Transfered to New Host Now NO Admin???


Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

I have transfered my web site to a new host provider(Godaddy Linux). I believe I have gotten my catalog to working but I am unable to log into the Admin. After the 3rd login attempt I get a 404 error.


Here are some of the details...


I exported the db's from the old site and imported them into the new with no issues that I know of.


I ftped all the old site to the root of the new site so that my catalog now sits in the root of the new site.


People are able to check out to make a final purchase and the db shows that it was successfull. I believe I made the correct changes to the configure.php for the root catalog.


I have setup the following for an admin password:




Have encrypted the password per these instructions: http://anydemo.com/encrypt-password-creator.cgi

which the passwd file contains example:



I have setup a /admin/.htaccess file which contains the following:

//Beginning of script//

AuthType Basic


AuthName "The Admin"


AuthUserFile "/.htpasswds/admin/passwd"



require valid-user

//Ending of script//


The following is excrepts of my Admin configure.php file if this will help(Note: Server,DB, & password variables removed):


define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://thefullcreel.com'); // eg, http://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers

define('HTTP_CATALOG_SERVER', '');


define('ENABLE_SSL_CATALOG', 'false'); // secure webserver for catalog module

define('DIR_FS_DOCUMENT_ROOT', '/'); // where the pages are located on the server

define('DIR_WS_ADMIN', '/admin/'); // absolute path required

define('DIR_FS_ADMIN', '/admin/'); // absolute pate required

define('DIR_WS_CATALOG', '/'); // absolute path required

define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', '/'); // absolute path required

define('DIR_WS_IMAGES', 'images/');

define('DIR_WS_ICONS', DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'icons/');

define('DIR_WS_CATALOG_IMAGES', DIR_WS_CATALOG . 'images/');

define('DIR_WS_INCLUDES', 'includes/');

define('DIR_WS_BOXES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'boxes/');

define('DIR_WS_FUNCTIONS', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'functions/');

define('DIR_WS_CLASSES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'classes/');

define('DIR_WS_MODULES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'modules/');

define('DIR_WS_LANGUAGES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'languages/');

define('DIR_WS_CATALOG_LANGUAGES', DIR_WS_CATALOG . 'includes/languages/');

define('DIR_FS_CATALOG_LANGUAGES', DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'includes/languages/');

define('DIR_FS_CATALOG_IMAGES', DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'images/');

define('DIR_FS_CATALOG_MODULES', DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'includes/modules/');

define('DIR_FS_BACKUP', DIR_FS_ADMIN . 'backups/');


// define our database connection

define('DB_SERVER', '); // eg, localhost - should not be empty for productive servers

define('DB_SERVER_USERNAME', '');

define('DB_SERVER_PASSWORD', '');

define('DB_DATABASE', '');

define('USE_PCONNECT', 'false'); // use persisstent connections?

define('STORE_SESSIONS', 'mysql');



Can anyone give me something to go on as to what my problem may be???? I appreciate any and all help.
