/administrator redirects to home page

Post by sonso1027 » Tue Aug 08, 2017 2:44 pm

Hi all

My Joomla is 2.5.11. PHP is 5.3. Suddenly the administrator page redirects to home page
from:
http://domainname/administrator
to:
http://domainname/index.php?option=com_ ... Itemid=101

I tried below I found on web but still the same
1) remove .htaccess
2) empty session table
3) disable jhackguard

Hope some one can help me. :(

Hi,
Check if you have Adminexile plugin to redirect admin url to others page.

Thanks

Your Joomla is severely outdated. You have failed to update to 2.5.28, released December 2014.

@mamunnu, I don't find a plugin called Adminexile

@Pen Yngve, I was able to get the admin page about a month ago. So it should not be related to version. But I will try if I cannot solve it eventually, thanks for your suggestion

Hi All

I finally found the plugin stopping me to get the administrator login page. It is "OSE Secure". After I disable it in DB. I can reach the login page. But still want to know if possible to get around even if it is enabled.

Thanks

@sonso1027: I haven't used OSE Secure plugin but, if it's like other plugins that do the same thing, I would go to Extensions » Plugin Manager » System - OSE Secure and look at the settings. There's probably a "secret word" setting.

The documentation for this plugin states
By default, the key is set to "oseSecure", then you need to access the backend by accessing this web page: http://www.yourwebsite.com/administrator/?oseSecure
The "secret word" can be set by changing the setting Extensions » Plugin Manager » System - OSE Secure » Basic Options » Backend Secure Key
