Cant stay logged in

Hey guys.
When I go to log into my phpBB 3 board, it logs me in, returns me to the board index, however, by this time it has logged me out.

Basically, I sign in but automatically sign out...
Any ideas how I can fix this? I dont want to release my board without it fixed...

What browser are you using?
Does your ISP force you to use proxies?
Do you have a browser web accelerator installed?

Any chance you could also post our cookie settings here for me to look at.

im not sure on my cookie settings, but I havent changed them from the defaults.

The board is installed on baseconcept.net/boards, but its default URL is board.baseconcept.net

I need to see your cookie settings just to be sure they are correct, can you access the Admin panel...if not do you have database access?

Ok sure.
Would it be easier for you to add me to an instant messaging program?
I have MSN, AIM, Yahoo, google and ICQ

Support should be sought and given via the board :) IT will help no one else if done in private.

Is this what you wanted?

Fair enough :)

No, I want the cookie settings which are set in the Admin control panel of the board. This is why I asked if you could still access the ACP and if not if you have direct database access.

Ahk, I'm with you :)

I have full access to my SQL database, what you need?

If you browse the the phpbb_config database table in a database management tool such as phpmyadmin you will find the cookie settings

cookie domain
cookie name
cookie path

I need to know what the values are for these rows in the phpbb_config database table :)

If Jaiibee can stay logged onto this forum without having to log on again and again and again, then the cookie settings are correct.

Please get to the crux of the issue, I'm having the same problem at dndcs.labgroupx.com :)

Its a board problem, thats why he needed the SQL problems.
Im glad to know I'm not the only one getting this, I have installed phpBB various times, often switching back to smf, or whatever during my design stage, and one problem I have often come across is this.

My problem isn't related to phpBB, it's related to a php powered web-based D&D 3.5e character sheet creation & storage app.
