After following these steps I have now lost my admin section?

* almost fixed

The login screen stalls and takes me to this url:

Im not able to access my admin section.

That error means that the login failed and it redirected you to the Security login form again. Make sure your user account is setup correctly by inspecting the member table

2. where does the javascript folder get copied too?
3. where does the blog folder get copied too?

The JS can go in 2 places - themes/yourtheme/javascript/* or you could put it in mysite/javascript/ I usually put it in the mysite/javascript but some people like to put it in the theme. It does really matter as SS doesnt do any dynamic loading or anything with JS - not like it does with CSS.

The modules (blog/forum etc) go in the root folder of your SS install eg same level as cms and sapphire

I looked at the members table but the password is encrypted. Is there a way to add a new member from phpmyadmin?

I wrote down the login and pass when I installed SS but its not taking it for some reason.

Is there a way to add a new login and password with phpmyadmin?

Im not sure adding members via phpmyadmin - you probably can but never done it so dont know how the encryption stuff works etc for the fields. What you could do is hard code a user account in your mysite/_config.php file by going

Security::setDefaultAdmin("user", "crazynewpassword");

Which creates a user with username 'user' and the password 'crazynewpassword'

where would I add this in the config file? Seems as though it breaks the site.

Its really starting to bother me because I made sure to write down the login and password when I installed.

Do you get any error messages when you add that? Or does it just die? can you check your PHP Error Logs for anything?
