    It is helpful to let us know what you have tried; basics: website.dev/user/login and website.dev/?q=user/login not working?

Maybe this help others. If you are using drupal with a temporary URL on a hostgator server, follow this link http://support.hostgator.com/articles/specialized-help/technical/drupal/using-drupal-with-a-temporary-url


What kind of problems exactly?

If you changed something in settings.php:

  • make a backup of settings.php
  • put back a default one with your DB details
  • try to login again

If you can't, post here the errors you are getting.

  • i am not sure. hostgator actually fixed my settings.php file. and i do not want to touch it. my index page loads now but no other pages load.

  • Post the settings.php file here. Cut out the database access and the URL but leave everything else. Commented Jul 13, 2012 at 21:00
