My installed fud forum:

http://www.tamparacing.com/forum

Anyway, good ideas and concepts guys Smile

Upon installation, I created the "root" account that should have admin access. But, when ever I login and go to the admin link, it says "not a admistrator". There is also some broken links that you will notice as well.

I think I could fix everything if I could just get into the admin menu.. What table/column contains the security settings for the users? I could just fix it by hand.

PS - Please change the default font, it kills the whole "First Impression" thing.

quite easy in fact,

okie,

SELECT * FROM fud_users;
would give you a list of users

UPDATE fud_users SET passwd='md5sum of pass' WHERE id=1;
would update the root account.

you need to make sure to set passwd to the md5 of your chosen password, for example under Linux if you want your password to be hello, you do this
$ md5sum --string="hello"
which would return something like:
5d41402abc4b2a76b9719d911017c592 "hello"

the value 5d41402abc4b2a76b9719d911017c592 is what you make your password, so:
UPDATE fud_users SET passwd='5d41402abc4b2a76b9719d911017c592' WHERE id=1;

would make the root account's password hello.

But the fact that your root account is messed up means our installation script is somehow borked, could you provide us information about how you installed your forum? I.E. which script did you use, the shell script or the web.. and so on.

P.S. under BSD you could get the md5sum using the md5 command, I simply dunno how to in windows, but i'm sure google could help you if you have probs, or you could always ask us Smile

Quick reply, thanks Smile

The password seems to be functioning properly though, I am able to login and post.. It also says, "Junior Member, Admistrator" when you view my profile while online. I have succesfully created a test post with the root account.

My info:
Used the php install.
Redhat 7.2 - Dedicated server
PHP 4.06
Latest MySql

I have tested this with both Mozilla on linux, and IE on windows..

Oh I see, so your root account is called Aharon and you are simply unable to access the admin panel 'cause it says you're not the admin?

Aharon please read the PM i've sent you, the problem *i think* is most likely to be the result of invalid paths that are stored inside your globals.php, which tell scripts where everything is.

Currently FUDforum only supports a single "ROOT/Admin" account, so you may want to make the account you use the "root" account.
Of course, once you've setup the forum you probably won't need it much, since you can give yourself moderation permissions, which will allows to moderate the forums, but I still recommend that you're account be the "root/admin" account.

If you want to use the root account, logout and then log in as root.

Strange. I tried both the shell, and php installs... I know one of them asked me for the "root" login name.. I chose Aharon as the name.. Infact, Aharon is the user id #1 in the table. Should I modify my name to be root?

Verify that your COOKIE_PATH and COOKIE_DOMAIN have correct values inside GLOBALS.php, which is located inside the include directory. The admin control panels require the admin to have a valid cookie set.
To see if the forum was able to set a cookie, go to http://your_domain/forum_path/php.php and see if you have a HTTP_COOKIE_VARS array or _COOKIES (php 4.1.1) if you do not it means the cookie was not set and that is why you cannot go to admin control panels.
