    I trying to upgrade from 1.2 to 1.7 or 1.8 and when I get the upgrade it will not allow me to log into the CMS... any ideas to why this is occurring would be great.

    • Try clearing your browser cache and the cookies for the domain. This usually happens to me if I'm still logged in to the manager when I do the upgrade.

        I tried removing clearing history, cache and cookies, it did not help. I tried flushing the DNS, it did not work.
        What I have done is over wrote the old files, yes I backed everything up, then did the install. I have done this several times. Each time I have tried to up grade I would re-upload the old files and each time I re-uploaded the old files it worked. What it appears me is that the login box is not connected to the program. What it does it when I put my credentials in it acts like it is going to load and then just clears the password box. I am not sure where to begin in tracking this down.

        Thanks you for any help or direction

          Hello Susan,

          Here is the error log....

          [09-Feb-2013 22:09:25] PHP Warning: include_once(config.inc.php) [<a href='function.include-once'>function.include-once</a>]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/user/public_html/manager/processors/login.processor.php on line 14

          Which seem to follow maybe my conclusion that there is a path issue?

            Try to update it so that you don't overwrite any old files but instead add/overwrite only your site specific files from your backup and see what happens.
