Hello,

I managed to install Magento on Windows XP Pro with last Apache, PHP and MySQL but I can’t access the admin section. I got the login page but when I entered my login/password, the page reloaded and stayed on the login… Login and password are goods since when I enter anything else, I get an access denied message. I tried to access the dashboard directly by copying the address from your demo store without success.

Anyone got this problem ?

Thanks !

Gildas

I believe I might be having the same issue. Install went just fine. I then added a new username for my partner, and tried to add him to the admin role, along with myself. Now both usernames are getting “Access Denied” when logging into the backend. I’ve plucked around in the admin_ tables using phpmyadmin, but I’m not sure what is creating the issue. What table do I need to alter to restore admin access to the users (or perhaps rule access to the role)?

Thanks,

Aaron
