Drupal, Access Denied for admin?

Hi Experts,

Something weird just happened to me. In my drupal site (not finished yet), I used to log in typing:
localhost/admin and get in there with no problems. but now I am getting Access denied and the only way to log in is by typing  localhost/user. What happened in there? I wonder if that has something to do with the fact that I create a new role for me named Administrator and I gave to me all the privileges. But that put me in a user level? I've been trying to understand this stuff about permissions but sometimes it gets confusing. Someone please explain me why this is happening.

thanks in advance.

If going to /admin works it means for some reason Drupal is remembering your previous login information. This can change if you start using a different browser or change your browser's cookie settings.

By the way, it is very normal to have to go to /user and login first and then have to go to /admin.

Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

To administer a drupal site you always must be logged in.  You log into a drupal site at example.com/user. Drupal uses a cookie track login sessions, so if you have the same cookie as the day before, you might not need to login.

Some modules provide a "user login form" on "access denied" pages. An example of this would be the Login Toboggan module, http://drupal.org/project/logintoboggan.

So are you wanting to be able to login on the /admin pages, or are you wanting to not have to login at all? LoginToboggan solves the first of these two problems.
