hi all,

I am a newb to osc-max. I do have 2 OScommerce installations under my belt. =) So wanted to see what the hubbub was about for oscmax.

I am experiencing a problem when I try to login to the admin login area after this new installation. It appears to accept the default login

, but when I hit confirm, it just refreshes the admin login screen. If I enter a incorrect password, it does show an error. I also checked to confirm that the username and password were still correct in my database. Yep the passwords are still good.

Another thing I noticed was that the "confirm" button was not coming up. For the fun of i I 777'd the admin directory to see if this was the problem, the confirm image does show correctly now, but I still cannot login.

I didnt see any references to this problem in the search so either I am "special" or I am "**special**"

Anyways if you have some input, let me know what you think...

Thanks much

This is usually caused by having the incorrect sessions directory or wrong permissions on the sessions dir.

Edit your configure.php file (admin/includes/configure.php)

Change the line:

define('STORE_SESSIONS', '');


define('STORE_SESSIONS', 'mysql');

Hopefully that will fix it for ya..
