Delete your cookies when having login troubles

Post by BLaHiTiS » 20 Oct 2007 12:56

Hello,

due to a much needed forum (security) upgrade you might be unable to login.

THat happens because your existing cookie that holds the login token is no longer valid and the board needs to generate a new one.

In windows xp, just search after @www.tm-forum*txt and delete all those entries
in windows vista, you need to go to the "computer" icon's extra options properties and make your hidden files and hidden system files visible, then go to:

C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Cookies/low and search for you@www.tm-forum cookie. THere can be several instances and you need to delete all of them.

sorry for any disconfort.

It seems cookies aren't working at all, for me anyway. I have to log in on every visit despite selecting auto-login.

yeah seems to be a problem.. i'm going to watch the phpbb community for a solution.

- one error which cause the logout problem is that when you use subsilver2, you won't stay logged in as it's having issues with the new rc7 build.

A solution is to switch your template to prosilver for now untill I find a suitable patch for this style

blah and all, do you go on http://www.tm-forum.com/ ? not with tmforum3/

and blah in the admin go to general -># Server configuration -># Cookie settings and leave blank the "Cookie domain" field (in option change the "Cookie_name" ;))

that should be ok (we've got the same problem in carpark and i solved it like that :))

ah, that brought me to the idea to point to the path where the correct server files are stored now and I've been staying logged in now too between sessions. SO that'll be the solution.
