As far as I know the "/cookie" shouldn't be in the cookie path ?

snakeplace.nl wrote:Hi guys,

I have the exact same problem over here.

Direct link: http://www.kb-boas.com/phpBB3
Redirected link: http://www.snakeplace.nl

I did enable the auto login mode, and the auto login key length left at 0, also tried 365..

Cookie settings tried 2 different settings, tested on both direct link and redirected. Both are NOK.

Cookie domein: .kb-boas.com
Cookie naam: cookie_1234
Cookie pad: /phpBB3/cookie
Cookie secure [ https ]: Disabled

Cookie domein: .snakeplace.nl
Cookie naam: cookie_1234
Cookie pad: /phpBB3/cookie
Cookie secure [ https ]: Disabled

What's going wrong, it is driving me nuts :oops:

Oke i have come a litle bit further, but stil i don't have what i'm looking for.

It is working with the following settings, but only with the direct link
(http://www.kb-boas.com/phpBB3.)

Cookie domein: .kb-boas.com
Cookie naam: cookie_1234
Cookie pad: /phpBB3
Cookie secure [ https ]: Disabled

Now i like to use it with redirected (http://www.snakeplace.nl.) can somebody help me please ?

I tested with

Cookie domein: .snakeplace.nl
Cookie naam: cookie_1235
Cookie pad: /phpBB3
Cookie secure [ https ]: Disabled

NOK :cry:

Also tried:

Cookie domein: .snakeplace.nl
Cookie naam: cookie_1235
Cookie pad: /
Cookie secure [ https ]: Disabled

Since i redirect to http://www.kb-boas.com/phpBB3 i thought i didn't needed the cookie pad filled in, this doesn't work either... I tried to change the domain to snakeplace.nl but this isn't working either with the setting above...

What worked for me was changing the domain name to my actual host domain name. so for me i was using .uni-nut.co.uk when it should have been name.plus.com as that is the true address fo the domain name

you can't have the board installed in one place and then try to trick it into thinking it is installed somewhere else.

you have to use the real info in the settings and then you have to access it by going to the real url where it is installed.

you will never get it to work with any type of redirect.

If you want it to be installed at http://www.snakeplace.nl/ then install it there.

I was having problems similar to the ones described here. I found that the 'cookie secured' was enabled when it should have been disabled. Maybe that'll help someone.

Which problem?
If cookies aren't working on your board, then it is because you have some incorrect settings, and no phpBB updates will fix that.
