New to Vanilla - Trouble signing into Admin Dashboard


I installed vanilla forums ( through FTP and I can't log into Admin Dashboard. Every time I log in, it tells me that the password is incorrect. When I reset my password and it does the same thing. I feel that I need to change my PHP version Since I am using Optimized Wordpress hosting with Bluehost, that option is gone. When I had a shared host account, I can install Vanilla with one-click and change the PHP version.

So, I don't know what to do. I really like Vanilla Forums.

    First forget about one click installer. Install it properly. Secondly if you are able to logon, but are getting logged out , it is usually becuase of the cookie domain.

    if you are accessing through different domains like and just stick to the one sub-domain.

    grep is your friend.

    How can I change that? In the .htaccess folder?
