I have Sitefinity setup that I have been using for several months in my local dev environment. My database is local and Sitefinity is local. Ill call it Sitefinity1 and DB1.
I now have a new project Sitefinity project I need to work on. I downloaded the Database and Sitefinity Website files from our TFS server. I restored the database, So I'll call this Sitefinity2 and DB2. After working through some issues I got this site up and running.
Both sites use the same username and password for how I log in to the backend.
I opened the project for Sitefinity1 in visual studio, ran it, logged into the admin portion. Stopped debugging. Opened the second solution (Sitefinity2). ran it and logged into the admin portion (I was comparing a few admin settings between the sites) NOTE - I didn't make any changes and nothing seemed out of the ordinary. Stopped debugging.
Reopened Sitefinity1. The site works still, but I now I can't login. It says I don't have access to /Sitefinity. I attached an image showing the error I get. At first I thought maybe it was a caching issue - like my browser was saving my username and password. So I tried another browser and got the same error.
To make matters worse, I then went to Sitefinity2 site and now that doesn't work either! The site doesn't even load for this one it just says The username or password is incorrect. That's it - can't load site, can't load Sitefinity admin portal, so I can't even change the password.
I'm basically dead in the water at this point, Please help.
