Subject: Login problem - cookies vs redirection

Hello again... I\'ve managed to set-up Geeklog, but ran into some problems when I tried to access it. At first, I couldn\'t log into the system, and kept getting the following error message through my browser: \"Redirection limit for this URL exceeded. Unable to load the requested page. This may be caused by cookies that are blocked.\" I readjusted my cookie settings to accept all cookies, cleared all of the existing cookies, and tried again. I received the same message a few more times. Now I can\'t even access the page. All I get is the error message I quoted above. Any suggestions short of installing the latest version that was just released? Thanks.

index.php tries to redirect you from the url you entered to the url that you specified in config.php. On some server setups, this seems to result in an endless loop.

Try to remove the complete "if" block in index.php that starts with
PHP Formatted Code
if (isset ($HTTP_SERVER_VARS['HTTP_HOST'])
i.e. all the lines between require_once('lib-common.php'Wink; and $display = ''; and see if that helps.

We're trying a different approach in Geeklog 1.3.8rc1, btw ...

bye, Dirk

....Now the page is loading, but I still can\'t seem to log-in. I\'m still getting the \"Redirection limit for this URL exceeded. Unable to load the requested page. This may be caused by cookies that are blocked.\" message. Maybe I\'ll just install Geeklog 1.3.8rc1 after I recover from too many hours in front of the computer Wink Thanks, Dirk.
