    Signing in to CMS Link to this post

    Hi, I'm having trouble signing in to the CMS, it keeps on saying that it doesnt recognise the email address, but I've cut n paste it from when I installed, it says I maybe need to sign up, is this something else I need to do?

    If you are having trouble logging in you can hard code a member account by putting this in your mysite _config file

    Security::setDefaultAdmin('admin', 'password');

    Using that should enable you to at least log in. You can then go to the security tab and fix / edit your details if they are missing

    I'm actually having the same exact problem and when i added in

    Security::setDefaultAdmin('admin', 'password');

    before the ending ?> i still cant login with those credentials. the site doesnt even give me an error, it just bumps me back to the login screen with no errors and the fields cleaned out

    edit: i'm not sure if this has anything to do with it, but i installed silverstripe not in the root folder, but in a folder named "test" so to access my silverstripe page i have to go to www.mysite.com/test

    actually solved it... it was a browser issue.

    a combination of deleting my cookies and restarting the comp let me log in.

    odd
