Bizzarre Behavior [cookies]

I have been having problems logging in as Admin or Moderator after a clean install.

After playing around with everything (literally!) I typed in the following uRL:

www.abc.com/admin

and was provided with the page:

www.abc.com/admin/moderation.php which is a login form.

I typed in username = Admin; Password = password

and bam....a screen flashed up which I was not able to catch and I was led back to the moderation.php screen again. So, I tried to login again......and it worked.

I did the exact same process as with the moderator login.

I tested the login on index.php .....and it still does not work....

but, I can login using moderator.php (painfull)

I created a new user and tried to login...but could not.

So, it looks like index.php is corrupt or something. At least I can now access my site...although nobody else can!

One small step forward....

I also noticed that in the cookie list the cookie for the site is listed as LastVisit and not the geeklog name...Not too sure if this is some kind of problem indicator...

Anyway..its been fun and I appreciate the help on my other posts but I am going to try another program...good luck!

Geeklog creates several cookies, 'LastVisit' is just one of them.

The others are created when needed: When you log in, when you change your default theme ...

Not sure why so many people seem to have problems with the cookies lately. The FAQ covers pretty much everything I can think of ...

Dirk-- I found this old post from you which said to modify the php.ini file and edit the line:

register_long_arrays = Off to read:

register_long_arrays = On

Brett-
Try this because you have very similar problems that I have and this worked for me..

Thanks Dirk...I plan on contributing to your site for your help...TY!! :-)

Yeah, completely forgot about that setting. The plan is to have this fixed in 1.3.12 (so that the long arrays are not needed any more).

I've added it to the FAQ now. Thanks!

I'm also having cookie problems but am not runnning PHP5.0


According to PHP.net, this directvie became available in 5.0. What would one do if not running 5.0+?
