    Getting into phpBB admin control panel

    Hi yas Croc and Doc and gang. Missed ya!

    I need a forum online to deal with a big business crisis ASAP. People are already being directed to the new Powweb site I created yesterday and no forum so far. I was going to rent one elsewhere but then remembered you guys offer this service. I installed it NO PROB and everything went swimmingly until I logged in as the admin I created and tried to find the admin control panel.

    Zilch

    I have read the tutorials, watched the videos, read through this forum for several pages looking for discussion, all with no luck.

    I have no doubt at all I can handle the forum set up myself IF I can just get into it.

    I log in and then look "at the bottom of your forum" to quote the tutorial for my admin control panel. There isn't one. Anywhere. trust me on this. This is DAY TWO of trying to find it.

    What am I doing wrong? I need this up as of yesterday. Tomorrow I will have to use a third-party site, and I hate to do that 'cause a decade with Powweb has so spoiled me. I just naturally assume I will get great service and product at absurdly low cost, and so far you guys are the only people who actually deliver said animal.

    Take care and thanks in advance.

    What's the forum URL Reeves? PM me your working forum login.

    EDIT: It's probably an incorrect sessions path

    Login to OPS php.ini
    http://ops.powweb.com/member/cgiManagement/PHPplus.bml

    Find
    ;session.save_path = "/tmp"

    Replace with (your XXXX numbers and user is at top of page)
    session.save_path = /home/users/web/bXXXX/pow.user/htdocs/phpsessions

    Create the folder phpsessions inside htdocs. Now login to your phpBB.
