Installing 1.3.11rc1 fresh -- cannot login after successful install:


Successfully installed on WinXP Pro SP2, Apache 2.0.52, PHP 5.0.3, MySQL 4.1.7, however, I cannot login using Admin/password nor Moderator/password in any location, no administrative access, etc.

Nothing in geeklog/logs/error.log, no errors in the apache log, system is just saying I'm not authorized.

New to geeklog, so any help is appreciated.


After digging in and force-debugging users.php I found that HTTP_POST_VARS was empty...

Checked the php.ini file, and sure enough, there's the register_long_arrays variable, defaults to Off for performance.

Everything is functioning now... perhaps a quick check of that variable at the same time register_globals is checked (when using PHP >= 5) would be good during installation/upgrade... I'll look at the code in 1.3.11rc1 and see if I can recommend the exact code fix.

All times are EST. The time is now 02:22 am.
