When did your problem begin? When I changed domain names.
Please describe your problem. I recently changed the domain name of my site. After changing the domain name, users can no longer log in to my phpbb forum.

The user enters their login information, and it gives the normal page saying the login was successful, and gives the link to "return to index". Everything on this page appears as if the user is logged in (their name appears up by the UCP, etc). However, as soon as they click anything (return to index, user control panel, home, etc) they will no longer be logged in after landing on the new page.

I have this same symptom as the admin, so I can't even get to the ACP.

Yeah, well your cookie settings are wrong. There is a cookie changing file somewhere around phpbb.com, but i cannot found the topic for it.

Otherwise you could use the support toolkit. With that you can change your cookie settings.

If you need support, I suggest you to use the Support Request Template for your questions on this board. If you have some serious problems, the Support Toolkit can fix it (depends on the problem).

Looks like my cookie path was set to /phpBB3 rather than just /

All is well now, thanks!
