View Full Version : Can't login to admin
07-23-2006, 03:52 PM
Hey - I just installed pp1.5 on my home test server (Apache 1.3.33, php v5.0, mysql v4.1.10), and was able to successfully go through the installation procedure right up to where it asks to create a username and password.
I create a user name and password.
Then, when i get to the actual admin login page, i enter the username and password, and all it does it loop back to the admin page...no errors, no wrong password statement...just keeps reloading the login screen...
Thanks in advance...

OK, so I simply went and checked the "log me in automatically" box and it seemed to get through...so it works.
Still weird though - it won't log me in unless I check the box...

Just so that you know that you are not going mad - mine does the same thing. Had me mightily confused for a while.
Both of you have problems with correct cookie support.

Geos: Mine does this on both windows and linux, IE and firefox. Both default installations. What would I do to solve this?
Please check if server put cookies on your machines. That would mean it can be also server side cookie issue.

I just cleared my cookies and went to login without the 'remember me' box checked.
It installs the following cookies:
Does not let me login though. Not a big problem.
This are not our (I mean Pixelpost) cookies:
Last visit is cookie set by front side of Pixelpost and PHPSESSID is both for front and backend. All login stuff is placed in session which is stored on server and only thanks to PHPSESSID you are connected with them. If there is problem with PHPSESSID then will be a problem with login.

I'm able to duplicate the same login issue when trying this with a clean testing install.
I'm running Mac OS X, with Safari and Firefox.
The following cookies are showing up in my list, though after every couple of clicks in the admin it's sending me back to the login page.
It won't let me log back in without the "remember me" box checked, but it does not remember the information. After a few tries, it started not working even with the box checked. A couple tried later it would again.
Any guess what needs to be done to keep this from happening? I'm afraid to upgrade my site if this could be my future...
any thoughts would be appreciated!

do one step:
take off all addons from the Addon-Folder
if that is ok, add one Addon to the Addon-Folder
so you can slowly check if one of the Addons is the problem (what I assume)
You should check if cookies works, if they can be set, and if value of PHPSESSID is not changing when you are browsing site.

i checked with and without it checked prior to launch, locally and on 2 different servers, both all apache, php 4 and 5, i did not see this issue. it must be between pixelpost and the server arrangement
IMHO it is only server side issue.

ok, I am getting the same issue with a site I am managing for a friend. She cannot login, and if she does, she gets logged out randomly. And at times, it gets stuck in a loop at the admin page. :confused:
Is this a problem with cookie settings? she gets the PHPSSEID, pp_user, and pp_password cookies.
But is the PHPSESSID have same value all the time or is it changing??
PS Just check what says Pixelpost 1.5 Final in general tab about session path?
