I just installed Drupal 6 (Don't ask why) from a fresh install (Version 6.29). I followed the install steps, created an admin user, set the correct time zone, etc.
But when I login and attempt to proceed to the admin panel, I get
You are not authorized to access this page. I have read about this issue many other places, and have attempted many solutions, but none seem to work for me.
I noticed that there is nothing in the
sessions table of my MySQL database for this drupal install (but there is data in other tables). I think that this has something to do with it, but ti could be that there is info in the table, but it is immediately removed due to a session/cookie issue.
I have repeatedly removed all my browser cookies each time I have tried a solution. I have tried many solutions on drupal.org, many of which have been also referenced on other sites, but none have worked.
