Go to your database


Look at the admin user and admin password variables.


Then go to site_url/management.php, and type them in.


If you choose site you should be able to modify everything the installer


You also get a load more functionality as well.


Admittedly, you would not have known this was there - so apologies and
such like for not making it more apparent. I'll modify the installer to
let people know.

Subject: [Xerte] Xerte Toolkits Setup


Hello Xerte Team,


Having installed Xerte On-line toolkits I am now a little wiser than I
was when I first ran the setup and I would like to change some of the


However If I run the setup once again I am presented with a blank
screen. I had expected that the software would recover the original
settings so that I could edit them.


This of course raises a security issue that I think has been discussed
elsewhere on the list. 


I guess the ideal situation is for the ability to create super user
accounts or at least one admin account that has the ability to rerun the
setup so as to modify configuration settings. Or is this already
possible and I don't know about it :-)


Any way I am now in a position where I can edit some of the settings by
editing the values in the sitedetails table, but some of the fields
appear to be encrypted in some way. These seem to be the news_text,
pod_one and pod_two fields. Is there some way of editing them. It seems
a shame that I cannot change a simple link to the demo, removing the
java script and repointing the href link to the demo of toolkits.


Kind regards
