Admin. Login Failure Due To .....


Recommended Posts

Hello and thank you for allowing me into your forum. I would like to have more info about myself for you to view in my profile but when trying to edit I receive this: [#1026] You are not permitted to modify all or some of your profile information. - Sorry.


Well, I come to you seeking knowledge and hoping to find a solution to my issue. I wish I could return the favor, but I am new to shopping carts / checkouts / gateways. I have a fairly good grasp on html, design, installs, etc .. so I think I can get around this hurdle if given a straight forward answer - hopefully!


I have a website at Hostgator that caters to aspects of roofing. I just now went into Fantastico and did the auto-install of v2.2 & chose the sub directory: /checkout. Everything looks and 'feels' good until it was time to login to admin. On my first attempt I received an error at the top of the page in a red bar stating: Error: Invalid administrator login attempt.


After digging for hours in this forum and not finding the exact issue I was having, I decided to go in and try my luck. The first thing I tried was to delete my .htaccess file residing in the root. It worked! I am now able to login with no problem.


Here is my issue though .. I wrote the .htaccess for SEO and really need to keep it the way it is. So I have a couple questions in regard to this whole situation and was hoping someone could take a few seconds to answer one, some or all of them.


1. Is there an easy (proven) fix?

2. If not, would it be possible for me to delete that .htaccess file only in times where I need to login to admin? (and if I did go this route, would my customers face the same login issues that I am facing now)?

3. I see now that there is a v3, should I go back and re-install?


I can't thank you enough for reading this post and possibly helping. My ultimate objective is to have a simple shopping cart/checkout page intergrated with my Paypal Pro account.


regards -
