Hi,

I'm finding that my brand new 2.4.6 install won't let me log in with either the admin user or the setDefaultAdmin() user credentials.
I have magic_quotes and asp_quotes both set to off, my assets folder is set to 777.

I can't think of what else it would be, and SilverStripe is giving me no indication...

Any help?

Thanks,
Matt

Hey there,

try putting your site into dev mode.

add this to your _config.php

Director::set_environment_type("dev");

Silverstripe will then show Errors.

Hope this helps

That doesn't help :(.

It doesn't display any error, just won't accept my name/pass.

I get: "
Please choose an authentication method and enter your credentials to access the CMS." with or without dev mode.

interestingly enough - when I use incorrect credentials (intentionally wrong user or pass), the "choose authentication method" message does _not_ pop up.

Hi, MattD,

Have you tried resetting your password using the "lost password" link on the admin login page?
