Locked out of software
« on: November 27, 2010, 08:22:10 am »

OK this is what happened.

I have Hostgator as my host, I did there "Quickinstall".  They e-mailed me a password and well for saome reason the software kept defaulting to my forum softwares ID and password.

Now I'm locked out "banned" from my own site.

What file do I need to edit on the FTP to removed the ban and how do I than set up a user ID with a password so this don't happen again?

Next time please search the board before posting support requests. Here are the first 3 results when searching for 'admin password':

OK I searched and got nothing.

I get log in failed everytime I try to log in. Not even once have I been able to get into the software.  And I'm inputting the ID and PW I set up through data base..

This sucks from all I read and saw this software offers all things I'm looking for, but I can get into it..

Either you've done something wrong or it's a bug in the auto-installer: http://documentation.coppermine-gallery.net/en/auto-installers.htm#why_not

Why do you start a second thread for the same issue? Merging with your existing one.

I suggest to install Coppermine as described in our docs. Otherwise we cannot help you.

Getting super flustered that was why.

First time I've ever had a host do my install and now it looks like I'll have to go back and re-do what they did..

Found out what was wrong, when the host did the install they had my database ID set wrong so it was all glitched out.  Seems they just do a copy and paste than plug in a few values.  All up and working now that I re-installed it.

Exactly for those reason we recommend to not use auto-installers. Who knows what else is misconfigured.

All should be good now that I did a fresh install.

Now working on bridging this with my SMF site..
