Admin Login Problems


I have installed JM Larix quickstart and it works as in demo, but cannot login into admin panel. I suppose this is because I used "localhost" for my host? I have tried various solutions as described online but this does not work. Is this because I installed directly on the server online (not my local computer) but used "localhost" for server name?

It does not allow me during installation to put in my corrected host name. How can I solve this login problem? Apologies if the answer is somewhere and I cannot find it, I am new to Magento.

Dear bloom!

You can install the quickstart on the localhost. After you customize the template successful, you will upload this quickstart to the live site, you export and import the localhost database to the live database and you just only changed some configuration of URL path in the #_config_data table. ( you try to find and replace the localhost domain and replace by the live domain.)

While installing you do not use the localhost domain (http://localhost/project_name), because you could not login the administrator system. You must to use IP : (

Good luck


Thank you for your response. But before I saw your response, I installed directly on the online server, using localhost and choosing to save session in database, it worked well, then later I changed the session saving to file. All works well.

Now, I will like to use the cyan color and to disable the others, how do I do this? Also, contact form is not working.

Please open the file :\app\design\frontend\default\jm_larixtemplate\pa ge\ja_vars.php
find code:

PHP Code:

$_params->set('ja_color','default');//default, blue, red, green, orange, black, wood, floral 

and replace:

PHP Code:

$_params->set('ja_color','green');//default, blue, red, green, orange, black, wood, floral 

and find code:

PHP Code:

$_params->set('usertool_color'4); //0: disable, 4: show colors tools 

and replace:

Please clear cache via the admin system and clear browser cache

Thanks, tienhc. I posted a question in the JM Larix forum but got not reply. I will like to have categories a menu on the of JM Larix, so that my product menu is displayed on the left just like is found in JM Morganite, how do I accomplish that?
