Yesterday I installed a 0.22 on my server to configure it for updating the forum, but login is not working.

I've also been having problems with 0.21 (autologin not working), but now it just does not work altogeter. When you login using firefox 2.0 (WXP) you appear as logged in the user list but you are not. ┬┐Anybody knows what is happening? you can try the test site here:

I've asked my community to do some testing, when they answer I'll try to bring more information about what browsers are not working.

First , get this:
Auto Cookies MOD
then, unzip it to your computer,

then upload the included install folder, to your phpbb folder on the server.,

then , in your browser, go to:

then in the suggested settings section, change the cookie name.
It doesn't matter what you change it to.

then click the button to accept the settings it finds.

then delete the install folder.

then log out of your board

then close your browser

then go back and log in again and test.

Thanks, but I do not think its a good idea installing mods on a forum that's not working properly. ┬┐Does anyone know what's happening, why and how to solve it without mods?

It's not really a mod. It's a tool to reset your cookies and such.

You upload it, run it, then delete it.

Everything you are describing has been fixed many times by this utility (Auto Cookies).....
