Hello !
i installed joomla cms in my system and had even accepted the default password during installation .But when i had to log in to the admin panel ,a loop occurs with the error message "you need to login".I tried logging in by changing the password,but in vain.
It was unsuccessful to even re-install the application.
I use Apache 1.3.33
Thank you for your concern !

Just rename the installation directory and delete the configuration file and then try re-installing it again. Also make sure you provide a password which you can remember.

In fact, Joomla regularly releases security patches.
You can only inject into old sites that have been not upgraded,
like with any other software system.
