I'm trying to explore the system - I got it started, edited a couple of lines in the home page, and then
made a small modification to the Page.ss file. Looks good - I can now display my modified home page.
However, I can't get back into the CMS. I tried http://myhost:3000 and http://myhost:3000/admin
and http://myhost/SilverStripe:3000/admin but all take me to an error page. I had the CMS running at
one point this evening - can someone tell me how to get back to it??

I just know I'm going to feel stupid about this one...

http://www.aikisoft.com/SilverStripe:3000/admin

Not Found

The requested URL /SilverStripe:3000/admin was not found on this server.
Apache/2.2.4 (Fedora) Server at www.aikisoft.com Port 80

Or

http://www.aikisoft.com:3000/admin

Unable to connect
Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at www.aikisoft.com:3000.

The second one is the standard Firefox window that tells you the system may be busy or unavailable

I erased and reinstalled my software. Then I tried accessing the CMS without using the port number. So if I go to www.mysite.com/admin - that seems to work - it takes me to the CMS. But the second time I went there, it did not ask me to log in. So how do I prevent just anyone from accessing my admin page?
Or am I missing something obvious here?

thanks,

I think I misread the documentation - I am not running on Windows, so the path <mysite>/admin gets me
to the CMS - I don't need the port number...

Problem solved...

"it did not ask me to log in. So how do I prevent just anyone from accessing my admin page? "

You are probably still logged into your last session. Make sure instead of just closing the browser window you click the logout button on the right that should log you out properly.
