Hi there,

after migrating my site to my live server the login into the backend isn't working anymore. Rest of site is working without any problems.

After calling I get the login form. But after entering my credentials I only get a white page telling me:

"Your Site Name

your tagline here

* Home
* About Us
* Contact Us

Server error

Sorry, there was a problem with handling your request.

Any ideas?

Thank you!

I've run into a similar problem. I've migrated my site to the live server and now when trying to access it hangs on the "Silverstripe" logo page and won't even launch the admin interface.

Judging by all of the questions, it appears that site migration problems are not uncommon. I wish there was more definitive documentation for migrating a site from one server to another.

If you have resolved your problems please let me know what you did. Thanks!

Thanks, turtleline.

I made the change listed at and it seemed to resolve my problems. Thanks for the suggestion, though. I'll definitely keep it in mind should any other bugs rear their ugly head.
