Issue Staying Logged into Admin
I have upgraded an installation of PP to 1.6, and the admin section keeps booting me back to the login screen. I had the same issue on a test upgrade to v1.5, and eventually avoided upgrading my working p-blog as the issue could not be resolved, either through removing addons, removing cookies, etc.
I am now very interested in upgrading my main site to 1.6, but need to make sure I can stay logged in, otherwise reliable posting may be an issue.
There are a couple other closed threads on the issue, but they didn't solve my problem. I understand it has something to do with session IDs not storing, though can't seem to find a way around this. Not sure if it has something to do with my host, configuration, or what.
I am on a Mac, OS 10.4.8, tried in Safari, and Firefox, on several machines (both home and work)
Could anyone offer any guidance? I'd be really greatful!
