Welcome to the Koken CMS community!

Here at KCS, you will find a friendly bunch of photographers who like to share their love for the Koken CMS. We hope that you will enjoy your time here and thrive in our community!

You asked for it: Donations!
You asked for it, and it's here: The possibility to "buy me a beer (or more)"!

Seriously: By giving a small paypal donation you will help with keeping this site afloat and also give me more incentive to develop OxyGen further... ;)

Can't Log into Koken Admin Page

Error messages, failures, broken content.
Forum rules
As of late, we have been seeing cases where some of you have been posting multiple types of questions within a singular type of topic...

This makes searching here a nightmare for people whom are attempting to find out whether or not their question has already been asked, or possibly even answered. Therefore, I would like to implement some very basic rules, which I think everybody will be happy with, given that they will lead to better search results.

  1. All public communication is done in English
  2. ONE question per topic
  3. Make the title descriptive
  4. If it's regarding a theme: make sure you mention the theme name.
  5. Leave a URL to your site, since sometimes, custom "hacks" and CSS will be uniqe to your site.

I believe that these simple rules will not only make our lives easier, but also the lives of our visitors :D

I am of the opinion that ignoring these requests will make it harder for us all.
Plus, we won't be able to actually mark an issue/topic as solved, since it would be more difficult to determine what we're actually trying to solve! For example: Are we addressing the first, second or third question?

Can't Log into Koken Admin Page

Postby Meco » Wed 21 Nov 2018, 14:16


we cant log into the koken admin page anymore. It worked all good before, now its not.
After trying to reset the passwort with the recovery-passowrd.php, which did not work, we
decided to reinstall Koken into a new URL.

(1) Back-up from old DB
(2) installing Koken onto FTP
(3) logging into the Koken Admin works
(4) Importing the Back-up DB into the new DB
(5) logging into the Koken Admin does not works
(6) Error: wrong E-Mail / PW
(7) checking the DB / koken_users.php , which has wrong log in Data
(8) changing the koken_users.php to the set up the right Login Data
(9) Log In into Koken Admin does not work
(10) API Error

New URL:


For both set-up I used different E-Mail addresses.

If anyone has an idea or can help, this would be much
appreciated. I really dont know what do do anymore...
