Logging is as admin - page not found

Num85's picture

I recently installed openpublish - because I'm on shared hosting I had to install locally first and then transfer everything over to my hosting area including the database. When I installed locally I installed it to localhost/openpublish/ folder and then transferred to the root of my public_html folder.
Everything seems to be working fine except I cannot log in as admin, when I log in I get the following error message after log in:

Page not found
The requested page could not be found.

I am logged in as a user but the top left admin widget does not show.

Could it be because I installed into a subdirectory locally and then transferred to the root of my hosting account?

Any help much appreciated.


I managed to fix the problem

I managed to fix the problem by editing my database with: "update system set status=0 where name='update'"
Now I can get into the admin area.

Log in to your phpmyadmin,

Log in to your phpmyadmin, click on database, select your OP database and then navigate to 'sql' once there you need to enter the following in the text box:

update system set status=0 where name='update'

Then click go and it should be done.

It's your apache config. I run into this problem all the time on fresh apache installs. If you open your apache.conf or virtual host conf file you'll need to change AllowOverrides in your < Directory > from none to all for example.

Options Includes
AllowOverride All
