I recently installed ocPortal on my website. I love what I've seen thus far, but I haven't been able to access much as of yet. I am able to log in under my admin credentials on the basic site just fine, and I am able to play around with my profile and the forums. However, when I try to access anything under the site admin menus, I am unable to actually log in. I put my username and password in, but pressing "login" only prompts me back to another login screen, with no error message of any sort.

I had a similar problem during the 10-step setup wizard. Between almost every step, I had to log in again. The site said that I didn't have a "confirmed session." It resumed at the next step every time I logged back in, though, so I shrugged and continued. Now, though, I can't access any administrator menus at all. Even when I successfully log in at the main site, trying to access admin pages at that point forces another login, which is fruitless.

Any thoughts?

My first thought is cookies. Do you have cookies enabled in you browser?

Do you have a Samsung Galaxy S / Galaxy S II ? If so, why not check out my ScreenFree FM Radio .

Check you didn't put a wrong cookie domain/path when you installed (you can check by looking at what is inside info.php).

This is an excerpt from info.php with cookie-laden themes:

$SITE_INFO['user_cookie']='ocp_member_id';
$SITE_INFO['pass_cookie']='ocp_member_hash';
$SITE_INFO['cookie_domain']='.www.alternativecove.com';
$SITE_INFO['cookie_path']='/';
$SITE_INFO['cookie_days']='120';

The cookie path seems lacking to me, but I'm afraid that I'm not sure what it should be.

That seems fine. Maybe if you've installed previously you have conflicting cookies from an old installation on your computer. You can test this by using the site from your browsers private browsing mode – if it works there, you know it is an issue with your computers cookies (private browsing mode starts a browsing session starting with a blank cookie state, then deletes the browsing session cookies when you close the window).
