I was testing my ss installation on a live domain name. When I changed the domain name to a new one and updated the dns zone in whm, everything works with the new domain except the admin backend. It seems to redirect to this url :

and gives this message: Please choose an authentication method and enter your credentials to access the CMS

any idea how to resolve this?


EDIT: I have already checked for the <% base_tag %>, and it is still there on the and shows the correct url in page source.

I resolved it myself. the error was caused by the $Form tag which I removed from includes/ I thought that the $Form tag is needed to include comment form only. So I simply added the $Form tag again after $Content tag, and now I can login the the backend!
