    Question accessing admin area in Joomla 1.5?


    My company's site has been running Joomla 1.0 and I just went through the upgrade to 1.5 (it took 3 attempts, but it said I was finally successful)...but I don't know how to log in to the new admin area?

    When I go to 'mydomainname.com'/content/administrator, which was where the admin/login always was, it still wants to log me into Joomla 1.0.

    Did I miss a step? Is there a new default admin/login area for Joomla 1.5?

    Hi dramarams

    Is your site located in a sub directory "content"?
    I was just curious of the "content" directory before the "/administrator"

    Hello dramarams,

    As far as I understand your Joomla 1.0 resides in a subdirectory of your public_html called "content". This is why you are accessing the Joomla 1.0 back-end when you request yourdomain.com/content/administrator

    Your upgraded Joomla on the other hand should reside in a separate directory if you have followed the tutorial precisely. The example in the tutorial is with a subdirectory called "dev". If you have used such a directory, then the back-end of the Joomla 1.5 based website will be accessible via:
