Administrator Login Issues

Last Modified: 06-August-2013

When logging onto the Administrator (back-end) of a Joomla site with JMapMyLDAP, it may experience the error:

You do not have access to the administrator section of this site.

This error may happen for several reasons. First check the log for any reported issues. The most common resolutions to this error are:

  • The Auto Register setting should be set to Override - Yes. This setting is found in the 'User - JMapMyLDAP' plug-in in version 1 or the LDAP Settings in version 2.
  • The auto-register setting in the 'User - Joomla' plug-in is not set to Yes.
  • The group mapping list doesn't allow adequate group assignment to allow Administrator (back-end) access to the user.
