Login page stopped working

Thanks Willr,

it's not a 404 page, /admin redirects me to the custom error page with the custom message what i have in the CMS.

So, it can't resolve 'admin' for some reason.

When I use '/Security/login' it takes me to my login page. I try to log in and it logs me in but stays on the same page, displaying a 'Welcome back..' message?!?!

It doesn't take me to admin, doesn't redirect me, nothing!?

My $Form variable is their, all the directories exist, its just stopped working for some bizzare reason.

I read maybe it could be something to do with someone else logging in as the same user on a different computer and failing to log out, session issue or something.

I've even emptied the temp cache and still no joy. very odd??

I am having literally the same problem as the above poster. Its happened out of nowhere, and my organization has really been suffering over it this past week. I've tried everything I can think to do. I know it isn't related to my configuration because my local development version works fine. My host recently upgraded to Apache 2.2, but I don't think that would be the cause.

Also, I curios to know if this is the case with anyone else, but I can successfully visit for example, but not

Expeditious help would be appreciated.

Has anyone been able to make any headway on this issue? I've really been struggling with it, without any progress.

Dang. I've just been gazumped by the same bug: site was working perfectly up until today, but now the login page just spins on 'waiting'. Any ideas? I'm using the pixelgreen theme, but noted that the $Form variable wasn't in the template file. Is this the bug referred to on the previous page and needs fixing? Help?

So i resolved my issue by going to silverstripe/cms/ instead of silverstripe/admin/

also i found this snippet of code in my _config.php
'cms' => '->admin'
