OK my first time working closely with a php based CMS or any CMS really, apart from word press lol. Basically after the first time I installed, the admin/password didn't work so I reinstalled (deleted _config), but now after carefully keeping watch for what I set as admin/pass i installed again, however when I try to log in the form loads for a minute and then refreshes to blank.

I tried the _config trick for coding in the user/pass and same result. Any help?

Hello,

try adding Director::set_environment_type("dev"); to your _config.php file to see if there are errors in your setup.

Weird, looks like a problem with sessions. Check the permissions for the folder /var/php_sessions. Are you running on a root server?

Seems like the PHP cannot store its session data.

I guess that's a shared hoster, in that case php should already be properly configured. If you can create the folder it is worth a try, but I guess the problem is something else.
