    rewrite confusion + login lost Link to this post

    Two, presumably unrelated, problems in my installation with a shared hosting outfit.

    1. The install process tells me that mod_rewrite is not enabled; I believe it is enabled, so I forced installation to proceed.
    2. Now, the CMS login refuses to recognise the email address I gave during installation.

    I have repeated the installation process, and got to the same result, so I am confident that this is a real problem and not the result of a keystroke error.

    So: not what you would call a smooth install. Do I give up, or can anyone suggest a solution?

    You can try hard code a member by adding this to your mysite/_config.php file

    Security::setDefaultAdmin('test', 'someSecurePassword');

    Add that and try and login with those details. When in try and reset your members password in Security section. Then logout and try again
