Cannot login as admin

Post by lownyou4evr » Mon Sep 17, 2007 10:50 pm

Does anyone know why I cannot log in as admin on my website.  the url is http://www.uhpops.com and for some reason I cannot log in as the admin in the back end.  Everytime I put my password and username it keeps on asking me to repeat it and type it in again.  I tried clearing the cookies and used different browsers.  Can anyone please help me out?  Thank you.

What Joomla version do you use? 1.5RC2?

Is your sessions.save_path directory writable?
You can use phpinfo(); to see the system specs: http://php.net/manual/en/function.phpinfo.php
The sessions.save_path is needed for storing the authentification sessions for the back-end. The front-end works with cookies.

Contact your host to make the sessions.save_path directory writable or
at Apache webservers it's possible to override the default session.save_path from php.ini, by using .htaccess.

Okay so im sorta new to this...my host is ixwebhosting.com..do i tell them i need to have sessions.save_path directory writable  and they will know what to do?  I am  using the latest version 1.13 of joomla.  Once again how do i check if it is writeable or not?  I cannot seem to do it with the link you provided me sorry.  Please help me out.  Thank you.

In the bottom of my website it also states Failed loading C:\Program Files\Zend\Optimizer\lib\ZendExtensionManager.dll  and ever since i uploaded the new version it has three tabs for everything, like the taps are repeated three times.  I was used to be able to log in in the back end this problem just occured recently.  And i never changed anything, so not sure why the session.save path would be unwritable.  Please let me know.  Thank you.

P.S. Sorry about cross posting.
