Remote user login problem on Phbb3.2.8 and wamp 3.1.9
Posted: Tue Oct 01, 2019 7:18 pm
I have made a successful installation of Phbb on Wamp and everything works as it should except remote logins. I have edited httpd.conf to add the directory for the phpbb installation. Local login works perfectly and I can access the acp area. I can see the public area locally as well as on remote but as soon as I try to login, only when on a remote computer, ucp.php?mode=login&sid=... appears on the address bar but the page throws a http error 403, access denied. I am pretty sure that I need to set up some permission in wamp but I do not know where to look. I tried to modify the .htaccess file that is located on the root of the phpbb installation, add an allow all for ucp.pnp, but it did not help. An attempt with secfilterengine and secfilterscanpost to off raised a 500 server error. I am certain that there is some trivial mistake I made but I had no luck. Any help is appreciated!
