administrative panel not accessable

Post by BoldlyWalking »

For the last 5 days I have been barred from my own PHPbb 3.0 admin panel.
When I sign in to the board I can go to the index page and I can open up all of the
forums.

BUT-when I try to make a post, a notice tells me that I don't have the proper credentials.
The same happens when I try to open up the administrative panel. It tells me I don't have the proper credentials.

A clue to the problem may be that when I sign in to the board, admin is displayed in the right-top corner, where the sign-in link is located. But as soon as I open up a forum the link goes back to "sign-in", and I can't use anything. The list on the bottom says that I can't post, reply, etc.

After first signing into the board, if I try to go straight to the admin panel, I get the same "permission denied" message.

So I'm pulling my hair out in Arizona! If one of you has any suggestions it will be greatly appreciated.

Try the "delete board cookies" link in the lower right of your forum.

If that doesn't work, manually clear your cookies from your browser.

I did both of the above and still get the same "no privledges" message.

Thanks, but I'm still locked out of my own board.
Can I roll it back? Would that help.
I did a recent save.

help please-- administrative panel not accessable

Post by BoldlyWalking »

An additional hint to the possible solution may be that when I log-in and click on a forum, my log-in disappears and the forum says I don't have proper credentials to post a reply.

Appreciate any help.

Thomas,

One other clue to this delemma might be that my webmaster can get into my admin panel, but I can't. We are 70 miles apart.
