Unable to login to admin after timeout. Get plain login screen when using the “admin” user & “Access Denied” when using another user which exists in admin_user table.
This has happened on local machine running WIN2KSP4, Apache2.2.28, MySQL5.1.35, php5.2.5 or
WIN2KSP4, Xammplite1.6.6a , Apache2.2, MySQL5.1.35, php5.2.5
Also happened on webhost
Apache/2.2.11 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.11 OpenSSL/0.9.8e-fips-rhel5 mod_bwlimited/1.4 mod_perl/2.0.4 Perl/v5.8.8
PHP Version 5.2.8
Tried both Firefox 3.00.11 & IE 6.00.2800 on WIN2k & Safari on MAC OSX - same result
I have tried clearing the magento session & cache folders, clearing browser cookies, restarting local server, restarting browser, re-entering passwords in admin_user table with phpmyadmin - no change!
It appears that many folks are having similar issues, but I have not found a definitive fix yet.
A clean install works for a while then the issue resurfaces.
I cannot use magento in a production environment under these circumstances.
Can anyone help?
