did you create the admin account with `add_admin` management command? it is specific to askbot

Just guessing that your server time may out of sync with the standard time. To check this, type date on the command line and compare the time with a site like

Also UNIX has a command ntpdate that sets the server time based on the values fetched from standard time servers:


The ntpdate must be run from the root account and the program may be in /sbin, /usr/sbin, or /usr/local/sbin

A very nice logo on your site!

Thanks for the logo compliment..... I hope it works because one of my users just said " I tried logging i with Facebook and then with Google and both cause the site to twitch and bug :"

I've just logged in to your site and added facebook and google logins. What happens if that user clears the browser cookies?

Yea the user also can login now! ..... thank you very much Evgeny .... I can private message you the trick for getting cool logos :)

On another note.... I really like this project and the fact that you are here supporting it. I think I might commission some skins to be made for ask bot so it looks a bit sharper. I really like some of the design elements... ofr better user experience... I feel that answerbag got a really nice style as well.
