I can't login after installation on remote web server
Hello everyone, anyone! I need help immediately. I have a small company that I want to install Vanilla forum on my website to use for a student training class that began on this Saturday. The problem: I can't login to the Forum after installing the Vanilla software. I copied the Vanilla files to my remote web server and went thru the Vanilla installer process with no problems and no error messages. But after the install, I can not login; it still shows in the right top corner "Not signed in (Sign In)" as if I had not attempted to login. I did found a few discussions on this community board with this similiar problem but all of these were trying to install the Vanilla forum software to their localhost, not a remote server. Nonetheless, I've tried deleting the config files that were install by the installer, and the database table files, and reinstall the Vanilla software four times now, but still couldn't login. I also delete the entire MySQL database from my web server and created a new database, as well as deleted all the Vanilla files on the server and uploaded the files again, then went thru the installation process again. I still can't login. Cookies are enabled and the cookie path in correct. I even tried to delete the cookies from my computer to show if that would make a difference, still can't login after installation. I'm at my wit's end here. If anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to solve this problem, please let me know ASAP. Thanks in advance, Tee
