    I've installed plogger on my site. The installation went successfully, and the database has been created. However, when i atempt to log in I am unable to do so. I'm entering the exact username and password for login, but I keep coming back to the login page. My web hosting provider is 1and1 it's a shared hosting account and it's running php5. Suggestions appreciated.
    Is there a way to manually reset the password or is it stored username and password in one of the php files in plogger-admin? Or, in the database, which table is it in?

    see this thread

    Cliffnotes :

    Ok, you're almost there just follow these steps:

    * Open PHPAdmin in your browser

    * Click on "plog_config" in the table list

    * Click the "browse" tab at the top of the right hand frame

    * There should be one record, click the "pencil" in the first column of the record table to edit that record

    * Your password is in "admin_password" and your username is in "admin_username". Notice that your password is a MD5 hash (ex: b02a961ed8a02a25ab783e48b79865f0), it is stored that way for security reasons. In order to create a new password, you need to replace that hash with another one. PHPAdmin has a built in password hasher, so simply type your new password in plaintext (ex: "password"), and in that dropdown box in the function column, select MD5.

    * Save it, try logging into your installation again

    Did anyone else getting the error message:
    * Cannot connect to MySQL with the information provided. MySQL error: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (46)

    * Cannot find the database booreview. MySQL error: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (46)

    I'm not exactly sure where the problem is here? I already had a database named booreview set up, and plogger cannot log into it. Do I need to change the socket plogger is trying to access?

    @lbouyea: Those messages indicate that your database server is having issues. Contact your webhost and have them correct the problem.
