Authentication Required


Authentication Required

Anonymous
cheerful
I finally installed 1.7.0 today. Went very well with one little hiccup... Re-authorization for expired tokens. It wants me to re-authorize for any save, delete, edit changes and then never makes the change.

I found the following

[http://wiki.geeklog.net/index.php/Re-Authentication_for_expired_Tokens

http://wiki.geeklog.net/index.php/CSRF_Protection

http://www.geeklog.net/forum/viewtopic.php?showtopic=90373

But they kinda lead me the right way but I'm not sure. Any help will be appreciated.

So does the re-authentication work? Also, which Geeklog version were you on before the upgrade?

bye, Dirk

I had similar problems with current Firefox but not with IE6.

Can you try for troubleshooting to switch to the unaltered theme 'professional'? In my case it had been faulty html in my theme changes.

It does not work. I was running 1.6.1sr1 but this is a fresh install due to server upgrades.

1000ideen - Thanks for the tip. I will look into this as well. This problem does occur in Firefox and IE6 and up.

It just occurred to me that I had not changed my theme yet. Everything is still default.

My guess would be that the referrer is not sent. Can you try the little PHP script that I posted in this discussion? Also, if you have any control over the server, see my very last post in that thread for another setting to look out for.

Thanks Dirk.

After running the script, it went directly back to "click me". No other message.

Just for reference, this is not my server and I only have access to Apache handlers. The only settings it displays are as follows:

Handler Extension
cgi-script .cgi .pl .plx .ppl .perl
server-parsed .shtml
type-map var

Okay, so no referrers are sent - that's the problem.

This could be a browser setting. If it happens with other browsers, too, it could be your router or proxy. Are you using one of those and could you check there?

After checking my router and modem, I realized that it was a configuration in my firewall preventing referrers. After changing a few settings, I am back in control.

I feel like an idiot as I probably should have looked there first. Oops!

Thank you so much for your help.
