Re: Using 2.3.1 I have a problem with user login - goes to endless loop
Hi, I'm new to Xoops. I did 4 uninstall and reinstalls yesterday on 2.3.1, and I'm having the same issue each time. The install goes fine. I can login as admin and do all the initial setup. Then once I log out I can't log back in.
I get the same errors as above. Incorrect login etc. then back to the login page.
The lost password process doesn't help. index.php and user.php neither will accept the new password I have just been given.
The last time I set up a secondary user, but that doesn't work either.
The first two times I used Fantastico. Then I thought from what I read here on the forum that that wasn't for the best. The last two were clean installs from the tar downloaded from the XOOPS site. The first time I thought maybe I tried customizing it too much, so I went through the process again and only did a little basic stuff before logging out.
I've tried all the fixes that I found here.
I changed the file /Xoops/kernel/session.php
I have replaced this line:
var $enableRegenerateId = false;
var $enableRegenerateId = true;
I went into phpAdmin and tried to repair and clear the sessions table.
I chmoded the permissions on sessions.php to 777.
All with no effect.
We haven't started using this portal yet, so there's no content. I don't have any problem with uninstalling and doing a clean install. But until I find out why it's letting me in one time as admin then never again, I don't see any future in doing that.
On my last clean install I was even able to satisfy Protector's security advisor except for the one provision that I suppose would have to be done by my host. However, there seems little point in getting them to tighten the security if neither I nor any other member can access the portal. It will, if I can get it working be a member's only board, and registrations verified by admin. We have no desire to be buried under avalanches of viagra etc. ads.
