Mysteriously can't login
The local login works, not the online installation...
I receive no error message. The login process seems to operate since when pressing the connect button, I go from
And I can't reset the password. No mail is sent, no confirmation of sending something is shown...
What theme are you using? Some themes weren't built with the proper mechanism to display all the error messages. This includes the core themes supplied with C5.
Were "Pretty URL's" enabled on your local site? If so, you might have to turn them off by opening the 'config' table and setting the 'URL_REWRITING' value to '0' (zero).
Did you bring over the .htaccess file from your localhost site? If so, try renaming it on your production site and creating a blank .htaccess file for now. To see if that helps.
There are ways to reset the admin password but let's see if the above suggestions get you in first.
The theme is mine, nothing coded about showing errors. What I do not understand is that the site is working perfectly on my local machine.
I have commented the paths in site_theme_paths.php to return to the core login page. I get then this weird error: a user name and a password are required. But i DO give those. And if I want to reset, the valid email address I give is refused.
I have indeed removed the .htaccess file to be sure it was not the culprit.
I have also tried the methods shown elsewhere to reset the password. This didn't help either.
<div class="alert alert-error"><?php Loader::element('system_errors', array('error' => $error));?></div>
This line will display more system errors.
Also, try deleting everything inside the '[root]/files/cache' folder (leaving an empty 'cache' folder)
This is probably something very silly to correct, but I don't see it. And nothing is written in the database, no log. The information is simply not passed. First time it this sort of things happens to me.
I'm wondering if your host has some sort of caching enabled or some 'cloud' services going on. Nothing in your source code indicates this to me but the behaviour seems suspicious.
