View Full Version : Admin not logging in when folder name changed

I have just purchased Flynax and am doing a fresh install of 4.5.2
Following the instructions I changed the admin folder name and took the appropriate steps during the install.
When I go to the admin page and put my username and password, the page doesn't respond.
I have done this several times and also tried just leaving the admin folder as is.
If the admin folder name is not changed, then all works fine.
Regardless of what I do via the install steps or later through FTP, changing the admin folder name doesn't process the log in.
Any ideas?

Hello Chris,

Exist 2 other places where you should change name for the new admin folder.

find line: define( 'ADMIN', 'admin' ); and change in 2nd part to new admin folder.
then open file: ftp://new_admin_folder>>.htaccess
find line: RewriteBase /admin/ and also change to the new admin folder.

save and try to login again.

I have just done another fresh install and all those things are fine.
The admin page still just sits and says loading...
I also noted on the front user interface that dropdowns do not work in the search area after selecting country.
The State/Region/Province just sits saying loading... as well.
Are these things related?
Thanks in advance for your help!

Hello Chris,

I thought your website have javascript/xajax problems.
I suggest you create a new ticket in the Technical Department or send me FTP access to PM.
