Hai All,

I was searching for a good forum application and i found this one and i installed this forum application in my system.

i have following doubts in this forum :-

1) When i update the cookie settings from admin control panel how do i need to retrieve it. i update the cookie settings by typo i typed spelling wrongly , now i am not able to login as the admin ,when ever i login again it is prompting for the password , i think these changes are due to the cookie settings which i did ?
I am not able do any thing Rolling Eyes


2) where are the global settings changed by the admin are stored.

3) How can see the password of a user i am seeing some encrypted text , how should i decode to the actual text?

Waiting for ur response ...

Thanks
Manoj


Thanks
Manoj

1 & 2) All settings are stored in include/GLOBALS.php. You can edit it with a text editor.

3) Unfortunately you cannot. We use one-way encryption and there is no way to get the actual password back.

Best of luck!

What do you mean by "not able to see the new changes"? Can you change the settings with a normal text editor? After manual changes, you will have to reload the ACP to load the new settings.

Earlier i changed the settings from Admin control panel, for ex :- if i am acessing the site with the following url let say "www.abcdefgh.com" then i gave the cookie settings as "abdfgh.com"(mispelled with the domain name) so when i login to the site then cookies are creating for the site which i gave i.e "abdfgh.com" but my domain name is "www.abcdefgh.com" so it is not able to authenicate the user with the valid username and password.

Now i am unable as admin too. because of that i have to change this cookie settings from the backend.

Could any let us know where i need to change this cookie settings so that i will able to login ..

Thanks
Manoj

Sorry, but I still don't understand why this is such a big issue. You you have a text editor? Can you edit GLOBALS.php? Can you see the $COOKIE_DOMAIN variable in it?

You should be able to change the value from either the ACP or GLOBALS.php file and it should stick. If not, you may have bigger issues.
