    I have recently setup a phbb forum however I am having trouble logging in, and then accessing the admin section. Any ideas what it could be? I get an error page the same as when a website is down. It was working fine last night.:-(

    thanks but id rather not :oops:

    The best place to check is the phpbb.com support forums, as it really could be anything... Check your config file and make sure everything looks ok, make sure your chmod's, cookie setting etc are all ok. Failing that, just replace all the files and/or do a fresh install...

    thanks :thumbsup:

    is it just the admin page that you can't access?
    IIRC they suggest that you rename it for security reasons.
    Can you access any other part of the site?

    and lastly are you sure that the servers aren't down?

    i can access the site, can half login- ill explain
    when i try and login it takes me to the page shown above, but when i hit the back button, it shows me as logged in. However i cant do that to access admin page. When im logged in i can post, so surely its not the servers is it? Ill see how it is tomorrow.

    Btw i have repped you all, thanks for all your help:thumbsup:

    na, it's definately a paging error in your database by the sounds of it, you have a redirect that's not working somewhere
