Help! I was just trying to setting the cookie domain inside the CP > Admin > Security and Privacy > Cookie Settins

(as explained here Cookie Settings)

and now I can't login to the CP admin :(

how can solve this big problem? thanks

solved, i've hardcoded the config.php with this:

$config['cookie_prefix'] = '';
$config['cookie_path'] = '';
$config['cookie_domain'] = '';
$config['user_session_type'] = 'c';
$config['admin_session_type'] = 's'; 

Using an MSM installation this solution works great but the config.php has to have these set afterwards otherwise the CP lockout continues:

$config['cookie_domain'] = "subdomain.mydomain.com";
$config['cookie_prefix'] = "myprefix";
$config['admin_session_type'] = 's'; 
  • Please, mark your answer as right. Thanks!
