  • "Forgot your password?"

    I have seven or eight modx sites running and This one is a problem. I can never login to the manager on this one site.

    However when I click "Forgot your password?" it logs me right in.

    I designed the site in MODx 0.9.6.2 I thought it might be a bug so after two months I upgraded to MODx 0.9.6.3 and the same problem persists.

    DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEAS?

      • Hey guys, this is my first post. So fogive me if it’s been covered. I’ve done a searh and this is the closest thread I could find.

        Installation goes through fine, but whenit completes and proceeds to the manager login page, I see and awful lot of code at the top that I’ve not seen before on previous installations:

        Warning: include_once(/home/rentmywe/public_html/assets/cache/siteCache.idx.php) [function.include-once]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/rentmywe/public_html/manager/includes/document.parser.class.inc.php on line 192

        The login box is still present, but when enter the us and pw I get this error message:

        <br />
        <b>Warning</b>:  include_once(/home/rentmywe/public_html/assets/cache/siteCache.idx.php) [<a href='function.include-once'>function.include-once</a>]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in <b>/home/rentmywe/public_html/manager/includes/document.parser.class.inc.php</b> on line <b>192</b><br />

        Incorrect username or password entered!
        


        Obviously, there’s something a miss somewhere, but I’ve check, rechecked file permissions and reinstalled, but I get the same error.

        Have I missed something obviuos?

        Thanks in advance,

        Rich

        • It certainly looks like a permission issue. If your host uses suPHP or suExec, the files need to be 644 and the folders 755. That would be the first thing to check.

          • Thanks for the quick reply.

            It was indeed file permissions. I thougt I checked and rechecked, but obviously coudn’t see the wood for the trees.
            The erronious code has disappear, but I still can’t log in.

            Like above I can get in through the fogotten password link, I’ve even edited and uneditted the login.processor.php as per one of the earlier post. Hoping it would reset things, but no joy.

            All session cookies have been cleared too...
