Admin Console Login - Error: Invalid administrator login attempt


rpope1025

Recommended Posts

I am working on a site that was originally developed by someone else, who my company no longer has access to, and I am tasked with picking up where he left off. As far as I know, everything is set up, and all that's left is data entry.

 

The problem, however, is that we can not accessthe admin panel. We get an error that says Error: Invalid administrator login attempt.

 

I have tried emptying the "administrators" table in phpMyAdmin, as well as creating new users, but that did not work either. My assumption is that there is a problem in the code.

@@rpope1025,

 

Did you check to see if there was an .htaccess protection password in place ?

 

Normally, the files for password validation are not changed. However, if you feel your files are, consider replacing them with new files from the original download.

@@rpope1025,

 

None that I know of. It is a simple task to replace the files with the originals. Just make sure you use files from the same version your shop is currently running on and MAKE A BACKUP of all files before changing anything.

Thanks. I already tried emptying the administrators table, and I dont have a table called action-recorder.

 

I am also going to try to change the .htaccess password - I'm feeling that that's probably the issue (how does something like that get changed in the first place? Could the original developer have messed it up on purpose?)
