Can't login to 1.6
« on: May 17, 2007, 09:06:00 pm »

I've got snews 1.6 up and running but I can't seem to login using test | test.
I have a different database username and password set in the snews.php but that doesn't seem to work either.
Any ideas?

It is your first posting, so I guess it is a fresh install, not an update.
Database username and password are not 'test' and 'test'. they are either provided by the webhost, or set while creating the database. You also should have created tables and filled tables, using the query that is in the readme.html. Do not alter the query

Welcome ulo, enjoy sNews

URL is http://moldylox.com/lab/
It's a simple login error. I have never successfully logged in. I enter the default username "test" and default password "test" and enter the value of the equation and I always get "Wrong username and/or password and/or sum" error message.

Because it's in a subdomain that is not called "sNews" is there something in the .htaccess I should set, or something like that?

My guess is you haven't populated the database correctly. There are some inserts that are missing and I can tell that because the title is missing.

You could drop the database and paste the whole SQL code.

.htaccess is ok, connection with the database is ok.
I guess sNews cannot validate the password. It uses a string in the  database for comparison (098f6bcd4621d373cade4e832627b4f6)
The top left corner should show sNews 1.6 This string is also generated by the database.

Did you create database tables and content?

Glad to help! And welcome to sNews  ;)
Everlasting love! (or a reasonable hand-drawn facsimile).
Thanks again. sNews might be just the Mambo replacement I was looking for.
