I am unable to login to the the magento backend. My site is up and working. I was able to login yesterday and today I can’t - not as any user. If I try and login as an invalid user then I get the “Access Denied” message, which means that it is accessing the database to check user name and password
I have tried loging in with a variety of browsers:
ff - mac
ff - PC
safari - mac
I have tried clearing my cache of cookies etc.
Any ideas? Anyone with the same problem?
I’m running 188.8.131.52 on a Centos virtual server (Xen based [not really relevant, but interesting]).
:-( As mild panic sets in, I’m off to investigate - results to be posted here
Just tried this: http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/32011/#t105635
commenting out code for cookie checking - that didn’t work.
I’ve just resolved this - it was a server problem (I’m happy, but embarrassed to say), not a magento issue - one disk partition was full, which i assume stopped the session file from being written.
