can't login after update
« on: November 17, 2010, 12:31:18 am »

hello,
Updated form 1.4.8 to 1.5.8 using Fantastico.  I know you don't like it.  It's an easy way for me and I use Coppermine since years.
the website is www.debeerst.com

the problem I can't login with the admin login.

I've been reading the forum and tried to install a fresh version.  Copied the old config.inc.php to the new installation http://mindex.be/astronomy2
Same problem.

Is there a possibility to login again?

thank you for helping me.

Xavier

Does it also don't work when you install a fresh version of cpg1.5.8 (without changing the config.inc.php file)?

With a fresh installation there is no problem to login
Is there an other way to link the old database to the fresh setup?
There are a lot of photos with unique descriptions in the old website.
This is the only photo archive of my astrophotos I have.

thanks for helping me

Updated form 1.4.8 to 1.5.8 using Fantastico.  I know you don't like it.  It's an easy way for me ....
Automatic installs and upgrades are an easy way to pain and suffering....

Your upgrade looks to be a bit of a mess. There might be files where they don't belong, as evidenced by: http://www.debeerst.com/index.php?theme=curve

The source of your upgraded page looks like this:
Code: [Select]
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
<head>
<title>www.debeerst.com</title>
</head>
<frameset rows='100%, *' frameborder='0' border='0' framespacing='0'>
<frame name='RTKGKGALDLD' src='http://www.mindex.be/astronomy/index.php'></frame>
<noframes>
<body>
<center>
<a href='http://www.mindex.be/astronomy/index.php'>www.debeerst.com</a>
</center>
</body>
</noframes>
</frameset>
</html>

Which, in my opinion, is not how a cpg page should look.....

Start by comparing the files and folders between the two installations. Clean it until the Curve theme works well. Then try logging in.

Remember that you will need to upgrade your theme to cpg 1.5.xx standards to use it.

    For all current and future readers:
    "Automatic installs and upgrades are an easy way to pain and suffering"
    Read your document package.

I agree with you that the automatic installation and upgrade isn't the most clean way to do.
It's easy for somebody who hasn't much experience with programming and servers.

If I could retrieve the information from the database I can start with a fresh installation.

greetings,

Xavier

Seems that your password doesn't match. No need to install several galleries and adjust the database credentials. Just reset your admin password. If you don't know how to do that, read the docs and search the board.

You don't need that skills. All you need is an ftp client application to update (= replace) Coppermine's core files.
