Unable to log in to fresh vanilla 1.1.10 installation

edited December 2009 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

I have just installed my first vanilla forum, but when I try to log in it wants to use https... this won't work on my server so is there anyway to disable the behaviour and log in with http only?

Thanks :)

    Edit conf/settings.php to set $Configuration['HTTP_METHOD'] to "http".
  • Options
    $Configuration['HTTP_METHOD'] = 'http';

    I made the change to the file, uploaded to server, retried to log-in, no change though. I am being directed to and get a "file not found" error.

    You also have to change $Configuration['BASE_URL'] and $Configuration['FORWARD_VALIDATED_USER_URL'].

    Yeah, I just uploaded the last of it and in step 2 I keep getting:

    We couldn’t connect to the server you provided ( The database responded with the following message: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'airsoft@letshost'@'' (using password: YES)

    I have tried my server as and the above. I didn't try the the steps you said above because to be honest I have no idea what it means, I'm new to this.

    Any help would be great.
