Message popping up

I established a database connection and when I run PowerCMS to an existing site I get the message "Unable to edit your database with the provided user credentials. Please make sure the connection user has write access to this database. (You may need to upload the connection to the server if you have made changes recently).

I double checked and the user name I applied to the database has all permissions added.

This indicates that there is a problem with the site defineiton for conenction to the testing server.

double check the testing server settings in your site definition, specofocly the Web URL and if using an FTP conection, make sure that the root directory points to the same location that maps to the Web URL, Some sites may put the site root into a subfolder such as public_html

OK, that worked... I just tested with one patch of body and added it to PowerCMS. I clicked edit in PowerCMS and it brings up the login window. I can't get in now... Do I use the same username and password for the database? Also, is it ok to add CMS to an existing site?

When you set up the Power CMS Admin,it will ask you to set a Super Admin username and password, that is the user name and password you should use for login into the admin_cms section.


yes, power cms can be added to an existing site, as long as the site is a php site.

CMS

I don't see an option where it is asking for the admin setup when I added the text to PowerCMS

Right, so this is the CMS login page.

When you ran the install script to install Power CMS, it would have asked you to set a Super Admin username and password.

if you do not remember the super admin user and password that you entered, you can find it in the power CMS database.

USe PHPMyAdmin or another MySQL GUI tool to access the site database and look in the wa_settings table, the super admin username and password are stored in that table.

This is all I am seeing in the WA_Settings. I've attached a screen grab...

try running the following SQL statement to create the admin username and passwpord:


INSERT INTO wa_settings (name, type, options, value, grp, subcategory, cond, description, variable, weight, spry_args, spry_error, help_text)
VALUES
('admin_username', 'text', '', 'admin', 'Site', NULL, NULL, '', 'Admin_Username', 72, ', \"none\", {isRequired:true, validateOn:[\"blur\", \"change\"]}', NULL, 'This is the Administrative Username that should be reserved for the website developer. Only this user will be able to modify the details of the Settings page. Additional administrative accounts can be created under the \'Users\' section of the PowerCMS Admin - these users will not be able to modify these settings.'),
('admin_password', 'text', '', 'test123', 'Site', NULL, NULL, '', 'Admin_Password', 73, NULL, NULL, NULL)");
