Can not access Joomla 3.0 after normal registration

Posted on 2014-03-12
Last Modified: 2014-03-27

I upgrade my Joomla website from 2.12 to 3.2.3.
Now if i register though a normal Joomla registration and try to login, it shows a message: "You cannot access the private section of this site"

Note that, K2 and Community Builder components are installed. And before make the upgrade I check their compatibility to Joomla 3.

What is the possible issue.

Kind regards,

How did you execute the upgrade?

Please see the following pages:

Are you using the CB login, K2 Login or Joomla login?
Which login module is enabled?
And which login was used before the update?

Are you using other component like AEC?

Hi routinet

Thanks for the help
Yes I check before the upgrade
For section 7 I checked the DB and click fix show this message:

1 Database Problem Found:
Database schema version (3.2.3-2014-02-20) does not match CMS version (3.2.3).

And under 'Other Information' tab:
- Database schema version (in #__schemas): 3.2.3-2014-02-20.
- Update version (in #__extensions): 3.2.3.
- Database driver: mysqli.
- 82 database changes were checked successfully.
- 137 database changes did not alter table structure and were skipped.

Looking at assets table it seems not correct since some categories with parent 0

Hi lenamtl

Yes both CB and K2 components was installed. but I only publish the CB login. After upgrade, I just use the normal login but cannot access as any group except Superadmin.

Could you tried each login module, one at the time.
Let say unpublish all login except one.

(in module management)
For example unpublish Joomla and CB login module and publish only K2 login module

To see if one of them will work.

>>> Looking at assets table it seems not correct since some categories with parent 0

You'll need to correct any issues in the assets table.    Be sure to follow the instructions found on the "Fixing the assets table" article I posted earlier.

I finally fixed it.
When I upgrade from 1.6 to 2.5 long time ago, I forgot to delete trashed articles and categories. Later, I install K2 and import all joomla contents but not in correct way. I found a lot pf records in the assets table with parent 0.

After deleting these records, the login work OK

Many thanks to all of you guys lenamtl and routinet your comments was really really helpful

My kind regards
