Wont Let Me Login
« on: February 10, 2007, 08:54:06 pm »

I'm trying to login to my galleries and it wont let me login. It just keeps redirecting me to the login page.

http://chickvenue.com/models is the gallery.

Have you tried clearing your Coppermine cookies and relogging in?

That worked but why does that happen? Allot of my members never come back because of that. Is there any way to fix it?

Choose another cookie name in coppermine's config - this will equal the clearing all cookies for your users.

If you just click Config in your Admin menu, and scroll down to the Cookie Settings part and add your cookie name there.

I think the default is;

Cookie Name: cpg143
Cookie Path: /

To quote the help file:

Default value is "/". Don't change this unless you know what you are doing. This may prevent you from logging in.

If you have broken your gallery by modifying this value, use phpMyAdmin to edit the xxxx_config table in your database and restore the default value.

Once. Don't change the cookie path, but the cookie name. Make sure to use a valid name (no dots or special chars, just alphanumerical).

"tacos" is fine. Doesn't matter very much - end users usually don't see the cookie name.

I changed the cookie name and it did it again. I had to change the cookie name twice because it kept doing it. It only lasts for a day max and then everyone has to still clear there cookies.

Can not replicate your issues. Loging in and out works fine for me. Check your browser's cookie settings and any third-party-apps on your desktop that might interfere (especially silly "internet security suites" like "Norton Internet Security").
