    red flag Help with admin area able to login but unable to use

    Zen Cart Version v1.3.9f - Fresh install - No addons
    Uncustomised install

    Hi,

    I installed Zen Cart fine there were no errors during installation. My store page displays correctly and I am able to login to the Admin area.

    Once I am logged into admin my problems start.

    It's so so weird... If I click on any menu Configuration, Catalogue, Payment etc I am redirected but to the login page. So I login again and again the same thing happens, I access admin choose a menu and get redirected to login.

    Therefore I cant use any of the functions in my admin to do anything.
    I checked the PHP settings at my webserver everything is correct.

    I dont know what to do please help me, tell me to run any test to see what the problem is please.

    Also I am accessing admin by https, I disabled this by putting "false" in the https configure.php file, but it didnt help whenever I go into the admin URL im still redirected to the https link.
    I dont know if that is related....

    Please help

    for those who wish to help me I attach my https settings from both configure.php files

    ADMIN/INCLUDES/configure.php

    define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://www.majesticsilver.co.uk');
    define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://cheltenham.webhosting.uk.com/~majestic');
    define('HTTP_CATALOG_SERVER', 'http://www.majesticsilver.co.uk');
    define('HTTPS_CATALOG_SERVER', 'https://cheltenham.webhosting.uk.com/~majestic');

    // Use secure webserver for catalog module and/or admin areas?
    define('ENABLE_SSL_CATALOG', 'true');
    define('ENABLE_SSL_ADMIN', 'true');

    INCLUDES/configure.php
    // HTTP_SERVER is your Main webserver: eg-http://www.your_domain.com
    // HTTPS_SERVER is your Secure webserver: eg-https://www.your_domain.com
    define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://www.majesticsilver.co.uk');
    define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://cheltenham.webhosting.uk.com/~majestic');

    // Use secure webserver for checkout procedure?
    define('ENABLE_SSL', 'true');


    I am using shared SSL certificate

    Did you try to clear your cache and cookies for your site, both for your domain and the secure site?

    Could you post, from the server, without your username and password, both configure.php files:
    /includes/configure.php
    /admin/includes/configure.php

    PEOPLE READ THIS: Zen Cart DOES NOT! work with shared SSL save yourselves the hassle and for about 30 a year get a dedicated SSL certificate- its worth it!

    NOTE: While Zen Cart DOES work with shared SSL ... it really is best to buy a proper certificate and things do look better to the Customer ...
