I have installed silverstripe on many hosts and usually it goes smoothly.
After finishing a new website for a client, I needed to move it to (where his hosting is located).
Everything worked fine until silverstripe asked me to login (to delete the install.php file), and it refused to log me in whatever I use
I tried to install it 5 times so far, and it does not log me in.
it just refreshes and takes me back to the login page, no errors.
I tried putting Security::setDefaultAdmin('admin','admin');
and still the same problem, it just refreshes, no login.

I am trying to find anyone who has already used ipage, and might have faced problems with sessions? cookies maybe?
I checked php.ini and everything seemed fine.

Any suggestions appreciated.

I got it fixed,
iPage dumb support (
stats to change php.ini sessions path using "sessions.save_path"
it should be "session.save_path"
