I Can't Login to ACP

Post by Hoom@n »

Hi!
I installed phpbb3, but I can't login to ACP. It says "To administer the board you must re-authenticate yourself.". What is the problem and what can I do?
Thank you!

Ditto with me, only it's "You have specified an incorrect username. Please check your username and try again. If you continue to have problems please contact the Board Administrator." :o And it's the same name I've used in setting up the board and not invisible (starred out).

Hoom@n: Do what the board says, re-authenticate yourself, i.e. login again, it's a security feature.

Hawkshango: Read the sticky topic about updates to RC6/7 at the top of this forum, it is probably caused by an outdated template

The problem is when I type my password and press Login, I go to a page which says: "You have successfully authenticated and will now be redirected to the Administration Control Panel." And after that again I go to the page which says: "To administer the board you must re-authenticate yourself."

I have this exact same problem... it becomes an endless loop of trying to log back in.

Apparently, persistence pays off, though. I haven't found the answer yet, but I keep trying random combinations of logging out, clearing cookies and private data, and logging back in. Once out of about 20 attempts, it does work for me. Once I get the ACP open, I leave the tab open and go to a new tab.

Oddly enough, it worked perfectly for me when I first installed the board, but when I tried again last night, I started having this issue. So far, I've found that using Firefox, Firefox with IE tab, or switching to just plain IE makes no difference whatsoever.

I was hoping I would be able to find the ability to turn the re-authentication feature off in the ACP, but I haven't yet. I would love to see that added.

Just I hope that phpBB developers come to this topic or similar ones and find and solve the problem!

I have a weird problem with ACP.

In FireFox i can login to the forums, and the ACP with no probelms.

However I tend to use Maxthon, and IE based browser with updated features.

When i go to my website, i can login on the bottom of the forums, but if you click "Login" at the top, that login screen doesn't let me login, to the forums, or the ACP.

Cookie settings are default. And it worked for some time today, it just randomly stopped working.

Website is http://www.EMP-Crew.net.

E-mail me at EMPaighton@EMP-Crew.net if you have an answer. Thanks.
