While trying to fix a login problem, I disabled the login modules.
Left my computer for a while and the site timed out. Now I can not log back into the back end.
I get the following message..
Use a valid username and password to gain access to the administrator backend.
Go to site home page.
At he link provided I get to the front end of my website but I have no link to the login page. Can anyone tell me how to recover the login screen?
I backed up the site and downloaded the zip file to my own computer.
At my server cpanel installed a new Joomla site.
Uploaded the.sql file of my original site but encountered the same problem with the authentication login in.
I now understand a little about phpmyadmin. I can not see a table called jos_plugins. I do see one called jos_sessions that appears to be the admin screen. I need to enable the authentication login screen.
Can you help me? If not, where can I find someone who know how to do this? Please advise.
