Issues on Joomla 1.7 admin login

Post by gingerweb » Mon Jan 07, 2019 11:14 am

I have an old (obviously) 1.7 site that i need to move servers. A simple job for several other 1.5 and 2.5 sites with no issues at all but the 1.7 site is problematic.

I am using Akeeba to backup and restore and the site is working fine but i cannot login to the admin with my absolutely correct username and password.

I am changing the windows hostfile to access the admin on the new server as the domain is still pointing to the old one, this is the same procedure i have used dozens if not hundreds of times.

Can anyone suggest a way of getting into the admin on the new server please?
many thanks
