SID and Cookies

Howdy,

I've been testing out phpBB2 for a while now, and after a short break from the net, I come back to see it's relelased. Woohoo!

Now, I installed the release onto my localhost machine, and fired it up (as per usual install) and there's no problem ... except I can't seem to get it to provide cookies. I'm stuck with SID in the URL.

Any ideas here? This is a 100% stock standard install ...

Regards,

Mark

What is your cookie path in the admin panel?

SID & Cookies

As I said, this is a 100% stock standard install ...

Cookie domain = phpbb2
Cookie name = phpbb2mysql
Cookie path = /

My hosts file is setup as 127.0.0.1 localhost webtopia phpbb2

I'm accessing the site via Apache, via the http://phpbb2/ address.

Hope this helps ...

Try doing http://127.0.0.1/phpbb . Also, you might have more luck having it on a real server, not a test server. I sometimes have problems with cookies too on my personal windows computer, so you might want to try it on a site.

Try leaving the cookie domain blank.
