Cannot log into admin backend of Joomla 2.5 website

Post by J3DI13 » Tue Oct 16, 2012 12:38 pm

Hello

I cannot login to the admin back-end of my clients site after we have relocated it to a different server. The clients IT dept did get it working on their internal intranet running the same spec as their webserver. I must warn you that it is a IIS7 server & not the much preferred Apache server. I have double checked the configuration.php file and all seems to be fine. I have used the FPA and here is the result

Is your issue fully resolved therefore? As I note from the FPA that the System TMP directory is not writeable. The site also appears to be a migration/upgrade from earlier versions.
There are a number of deprecated 1.6 extensions hanging around that ought to be cleaned up.
