I am the admin and I can't seem to login to my site at all. This is ported over from phpbb3 but it was working fine. Checked the database and there are two users named "admin", more than likely this is the problem? Any ideas on how to fix it?
there is a column Admin make sure it is set. Logon
go to /dashboard/role make sure role and permissions are set up. If not it will tell you what to do,
otherwise, go through each role and check the permission are correct.
Then you can other administrators and moderators through /dashboard/user
grep is your friend.
I set admin to 1 in one of the users in the database and now I can login to the dashboard. But now I have two admin accounts with the same email, name and password. The one I can login with is not the one associated with my posts, but I can't login with that one - if you're still with me? One is probably from the phpbb install and the other the admin i created when setting up vanilla. Is there a way to merge the two?
roles and permissions are setup.
Its okay sorted, just did a fresh import from phpbb.
Find out which user has all the post then reset the password, and also set Admin to 1.
then delete the other admin.
I would check though that your other user passwords are working. Anyway duplicate emails are not normally allowed, it is simply the converter that did that.
