Newly installed pw cannot login admin area

Recommended Posts

Hi, everyone. I am new to processwire 2.4. I just tried to install a fresh copy of processWire 2.4 on my win 8.1 machine using xampp.

The front-end is fine. However, when I try to login admin area, it just seem to be a refresh of current page. I have search the forum and know that there are some tricks and tried, including changing session name,changing admin password ,create the "/site/assets/sessions/" folder new by hand, etc,but still no luck. I know I have a correct rewrite base in htaccess file.

Any help will be appreciated.

Can I suggest you try MAMP for Windows instead?

Then navigate to C:\MAMP\conf\apache

 

Find where it says:

# AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files.
# It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords:
# Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
#
AllowOverride None

And change it to:

# AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files.
# It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords:
# Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
#
AllowOverride All

Then restart your MAMP servers

 

I wrestled with XAMPP but MAMP just works!

seem a ssl problem

To antknight,

I 've check the corresponding file in xampp, it is already allowoverride ALL. At this stage, I will try to look for solution for xampp first. If still not successful , I may change to MAMP

Thanks!

As far as I am aware, 'notice' and 'warn' level errors are nothing to worry about, however there are 2 lines (464 & 465 in the first block) that are actual 'error's. There is, I think, a known issue with tildes (~) in PW urls, so a search of the forum may turn something up. Otherwise, I would concentrate on those 2 lines, do some Googling, and see what you come up with.

Just have a brief search on google , both telling me to add virtual hosts to the apache. added and now rewrite base can be commented out without issue visiting front-end. Still cannot login to admin area.

Seem I am  losing energy to do the research...

The Apache log file for my ProcessWire 2.5 suddenly started saying: "[error] Request exceeded the limit of 10 internal redirects due to probable configuration error. Use 'LimitInternalRecursion' to increase the limit if necessary. Use 'LogLevel debug' to get a backtrace., referer: http://www.example.com/"

All requests came from index.php (which is natural since .htaccess redirects all trafic to index.php).
The site has been online for one month, but according to the log files the error was seen yesterday for the first time.

Fixed by setting "RewriteBase /" in .htaccess.
