Problems after upgrading from 1.3 to 1.4 - no Admin Panel and just default Theme
I upgraded from 1.3 to 1.4 (late I need to upgrade to 1.7 step by step).
I used this Howto.
After I done all of the steps I tried to log into the admin panel but it seems I got logged in just as an customer. Cant see the admin panel.
Also I got just the default Magento template not the Template I got on the 1.3 version.
Copied the css,media,js,flash and skin folder to the new location but nothing changes.
