Unable to login into 1.5.26 with correct password

Post by mikarbach » Fri Sep 18, 2015 5:38 am

Hi all, hopefully somebody can help.

I am using joomla 1.5.26 on Linux, my site (www.karbach.org) is running since more than 5 years without any issue. Two days ago I have made some changes in the outlay, only removed some modules from being appearing on the front page. I have full access on the system.

Unfortunately, now I am not able to login into my site. Neither from 'login form' of the start page, which has worked all the time, nor on the administration page. After entering login data, the page reloaded simply and nothing more. This happens on the login form as well as on the administration page. The passwords are definitely not changed and are correct. Entering wrong user name or pwd, the site claims it is wrong. I have checked many browsers (chrome, firefox, opera, konqueror and lynx). In log-files are no errors to observe.

Is it possible to re enable modules from the outsite?

Hopefully, somebody have a hint.

This normally happen due to large session_lifetime value. Check your configuration.php and for session_lifetime change it to 15.
Also try from different computer if your computer program/browser addon blocking cookies.

OK, I have tried now to login from different computers, and tablet as well, all the same. It directly reloads the start page.

My session lifetime was on 10 no I have tried 15, but nothing changed.

Meanwhile I have installed phpMyAdmin to see, what is able to change within the database. Unfortunately, I do not know the details of all those settings. Anyway, at least I am able to change some content.

[update:] In Lynx I see the message: 'Http/1.1 303 See other'

[update-2:] I have found the culprit, I have to set 'User Joomla' to be published 1! That solved the problem!

Problem is fixed

Looks like somehow you disabled it. User Joomla plugin should be published.
Thanks for the update.
