This is usually the result of a simple mistake when applying the changes to the core files. Recheck the installation instructions to make sure you did everything correctly. A tool like Beyond Compare or WinMerge can help you quickly compare the files you change to a saved pre-change copy to see if you did everything correctly.

Ahh... HTTP admin authentication. If you rename the .htaccess file, you will be able to access admin consistently. If you edit it, you will notice a reference to the admin.php file. This tells Apache that if anyone attempts to access admin.php, make them enter a password and user ID that is defined in the .staccess file (the password is encrypted). Note that this user ID and password are different from your Nuke user and Nuke administrator.

But, if you rename the .htaccess file, you will be preventing HTTP admin authentication from adequately protecting your admin functions. You may wish to rename them both, then use NukeSentinel to recreate them with a new user and password.

so if i decide to rename the .htaccess will I be still protected?

and how can i find out the password for admin if I use .htaccess?

You won't be fully protected if you rename the .htaccess. But you will be able to access admin.php, and then create a new .htaccess and a new user & password in .staccess using NukeSentinel, after which you will be fully protected again.

.staccess contains a list of users and encrypted passwords - not necessarily "admin" and there is no practical way to find out the password.

If you remove the .htaccess, but cannot remember your admin password, you can use a SQL tool like phpMyAdmin to remove the contents of the authors table, and recreate your admin account. Alternately, if you search here and / or on Google, you can probably find a default encrypted password that you can replace using phpMyAdmin.

but the thing that I dont get is when I set the username and password in Nuke Senitel Under ADMIN AUTH LIST and chmod the .htaccess to 666 I'm still not able to log into the admin.php

I'm confused
