Joomla 1.5 ADMIN LOGIN not working
I installed Joomla 1.5 yesterday and built a site. Today, the admin login is not working.
Steps I took to resolve this:
I double-checked the email for the correct user name and password, and entered them correctly...
I did the steps in PHPMYADMIN to reset the super admin password, and this did not work either.
Does anyone have any ideas why Joomla 1.5 administrator login would be malfunctioning and how I can resolve this?
This can happen if you have blocked the Super Administrator user or have disabled the login module. Please try loggin in with another user of you have one.
There is no other users.

I did try creating another super administrator from the PhPMyAdmin, but that did not work.
I welcome any suggestions.
There are various permissions you would need to setup in the database for a new user and that's not really the recommended way to add them.
Please try reseting the admin user by following this guide
In my first post, I initially stated that among the steps to resolve this issue, I already did the steps to reset the password through the PhPmyAdmin panel.

Just wondering if this is a problem with sessions, tokens, or cookies and Windows XP or Firefox? Something wrong with Joomla1?
This has become very frustrating and now I am reluctant to use Joomla at all.
Joomla! Admin panel issues
This same thing is happening to ALOT of people.
The things we know, is that this is a recent issue... perhaps a Windows Update? Perhaps a Firefox update? Perhaps a hack?
In my opinion this is a major functionality issue if web developers can't get into the program's admin panel. It is my hope to draw attention to this issue so the devs at Joomla! can take a look at it.
If ANYONE here at siteground has any clues that could help, I would greatly appreciate any assistance.
To say the least, this was an annoying little bug. I wound up reinstalling Joomla!, updating it to the most recent version from Joomla! and didn't have any more problems.
I have NO idea what caused that malfunction, but that was my solution, rebuilding it from scratch.
I relate to the frustration as I installed 1.5 yesterday and also do not have administrator access. I followed a link in this thread for instructions and it will written in such technical language it might as well have been Greek.
I will probably follow the same path, of re-installing.
Here is a link to the Joomla Forum where I had this EXACT same problem, and was able to fix without reinstall.
found this through google seems to work on the latest joomla using myphpadmin
This didn't work for me in Joomla 1.5.17 like the person below but I googled and found this youtube video that fixed it

Apparently Joomla logs me in, but after the redirect to index.php it somehow forgets my previous session and creates a new one, sees that the new (current) session is not logged in and prompts me for username/password again. You can confirm that by looking into table jos_session (if your session management is set to "Database") and crosscheck the session_id with your browser cookies. After each login you see your previous session logged in as administrator, however there is no matching cookie in your browser anymore.
Here is an ugly hack that fixes the problem:
- open administrator/components/com_login/admin.login.php
- find $mainframe->redirect('index.php'); (around line 69), and replace it with /* $mainframe->redirect('index.php'); */ to comment it out
- insert the following line above the previous $mainframe->redirect():
die('<html><head><meta * disabled word ** disabled word ** disabled word ** disabled word ** disabled word ** disabled word ** disabled word ** disabled word ** disabled word ** disabled word *="refresh" content="0;URL=http://www.mydomain.com/administrator/"></head><body></body></html>');
(replace with your own domainname)
Save the file and try to login again.
Hope this helps…
This solved my Login reloading after login in with correct info
Try this people....it worked great for me....
In phpmyadmin, go to the table "jos_plugins".
Then scroll down to "User - Joomla!"
Click on the Edit icon
Go to the area where it says "published" and change that from 0 to 1
Then try your login again...
What do I need to update in the users table
After reading pretty much all the forums that discuss this issue, it seems like I just can't resolve this...
I still get this error when I go to my site(still cannot see the login screen): Infinite loop detected in JError
Here's what I've done,
1. I went to MY SQL DB
2. I went to the users table tk7_users
3. I tried updating a few values in there but nothing is worked, I do not see permissions... Would permissions be activation? I tried that too, it didn't work.
I tried to follow the instructions of going to the users table which is :
The described issue is most probably caused by some of your additionally installed Joomla extensions. I am afraid that the provided information is not sufficient, so that we can assist you. However, if your Joomla website is hosted on our server you can post a new support ticket from your Customer Area -> Get Support -> HelpDesk section, and we will gladly assist you further.
You can also check the following article for more details how to reset your Joomla administrative login details:
PHP output_buffering fix
Most likely your configuration.php is trashed. Check your apache error.log file. If you find this PHP warning (PHP Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent...) then try this:
Once you've turned output_buffering = On then hopefully you can login. Once you're in as admin go to joomla global settings and change anything to rewrite the configuration.php file. That should fix it and you can go back and turn output_buffering = Off.
Hope this works... I went through hell and high water to figure this out.
Just thought I would add my two pence worth to this. I just had the same issue and fixed it.
I am running Joomla 1.5.2x(whatever the latest is)
Anyway, I had the same issue, where you log in with the correct Username and Password, yet a screen refresh occurred.
"Aggghhhh!!!" I said followed by multiple expletives that can not be mentioned here.
Then I dug about, I made another joomla install on a different DB to see if there were any changes in the users and plugins tables.
So anyway the ***_plugins table was missing 'User' so I added that.
Still not working, then I thought I would check the files in the Plugins.
The "Plugins / Users" folder from the root of your site may be either missing or missing files, I was missing the joomla.php and joomla.xml.
So I copied these across and now I have full access to admin control panel.
So glad someone else pointed this out, I've been troubleshooting this issue for a week or so and finally found out that my joomla.XML file was missing!

(I too am using the latest Joomla btw)
