    Hi,

    I logged into a joomla site hosted on my box this morning (using the admin control panel for joomla) and everyting was fine, but slow. I checked the server and saw it was doing the usual updates. After the updates completed, however, I now can't log into the joomla website. I've checked everything I can think of (tmp paths for sessions etc).

    Does anyone have any remedies? A google on this problem doesn't yield anything usefull.

    If you're getting the login screen for administrator, I would suggest try changing the password from joomla database.

    It seems to be related to php sessions, though.

    I noticed this when trying it in IE. It tries two pages (both of them come back with session errors and moaning about /tmp) and brings you back to the login page.

    I have checked the relevant configurations for Joomla and I know it's not this.

    It would seem that the cPanel update has done something to the php.ini or perhaps something related?

    I can't get a hold of the server admin :(

    But no, short urls aren't enabled - it caused problems for me before so left them off.

    Just a guess, but do you have short URLs enabled? Try disabling them.

    Global config > SEO > Search Engine Friendly URLs > tick no
    Or, since you can't login, in the configuration.php change this:
    $mosConfig_sef = '1';
    To this:
    $mosConfig_sef = '0';

    If that gets you in, your server admin can explain whats changed I bet. ;)

    Why would you bet on the server admin knowing anyway?

    check the last line of the config file and see if there is a spare line. it should have
    PHP:
    ?> 
    as the last line
