I just got this bug on a fresh install (no added modules - purely out-of-the-box) of 2.0.18 with IE7 in 2 different computers. Firefox works fine.
Clearing cookies/history sometimes works but not this time.

Changing regenerate = false worked.

hmm This post is made from IE7.

I mean I usually use Firefox and im inclined to believe the IE7 is buggy so i tried it. BUT, no problems here.

Again I think this is more of a user setting, firewall, windows defender, ISP; I dunno. But It seems to be unique to certain users, I really wouldn't call it a bug in xoops.

I have this problem too. Firefox works fine, but IE can't login.
This problem have started when I moved XOOPS 2.0.18 from windows server to server under Linux (with newer versions apache, mysql, php). But there was a few minutes when everything worked fine... strange!

I changed '/kernel/session.php' file, uninstalled Protector module, etc. Nothing.

I switched 'Use custom session' to 'NO' and this resolved problem... for now.

EDIT: After one day it still works! Turning off 'Use custom session' option (General Preferences) is the solution.

Oh yay. I upgraded from 2.0.17 to and now the issue is back - but the regenerate=false fix no longer works. I believe custom session is off but I can't get in with Firefox or IE to verify it. The usual trick of clearing cookies doesn't work either. Neither did repairing the session db table.
Tried a different computer, even used Blazer browser on my Treo - get sent right back to the login screen. Already getting emails from users so it's quite widespread if not 100% (used to be just occasional).

Another user just advised me same issue with Safari browser.

I have read in changelog from 2.0.18 to that you have made this change:

Improved: Turned enableRegenerateId off in XOOPS session to avoid problems with IEs (phppp)

But using private sessions with this setting, it seems impossible to login (explorer 6 and firefox in a system updated from 2.0.9 to

I find no setcookie anywhere for private session, other than in session.php (update_cookie) and it seems to be called only with enableRegenerateId true.

I need to set enableRegenerateId On in the script (kernel/session.php) to make it work.

I couldn't yet test it with explorer 7.

Could it give some problems?

Thank you, bye. Have a good work (could you say like this? bleah ... my terrible english )

mubarak -

Thanks - it works!
The old fix was to change kernel/session.php to regenerate = false (see post #11 above) but apparently that now creates the bug in!
Set it to true and now it's working fine (even in IE)!
(But my 4 other sites work fine with no change to that file/switch...)
That should keep phppp up at night for a while. I might try mirroring the trouble site and upgrading to 2.3.0a and see what happens.

My site was installed in XOOPS
and also has this problem when use IE6 or IE7 can not login.
I use the method
check XOOPS/kernel/session.php
Line #78
var $enableRegenerateId = true;
change to
var $enableRegenerateId = false;
To see if it fixes your problem.

It worked.

Thanks a lot PHPPP
