I migrated a site from a local server to a webhoster (shared host) and can not log into the backend anymore. i enter my userdata in login form and get to the page showing the silverstripe logo and the phrase "create the web". Then nothing happens.

All frontend pages work fine.

All server requirements are met by the shared hosting i am migrationg to.

Login might somehow have succeeded as I am allowed to do a ?flush=true.

I manually deleted all caches and cache dirs.

When i run the install.php the database connection is said to fail. No surprise! The script tries to use a user that is not defined in the _config.php. When i enter the ones it should use, it accepts them.

i checked the apache error log files and found an error saying
"/is/htdocs/wpXXXXXXXX_XXXXXXX/www/asdasdasd/assets/.htaccess: php_flag not allowed here"
I commented the line in the .htaccess file in assets folder and here we go, the admin page loads correctly.

The webhoster is with package "webhosting basic".
