Hi all and an happy new year ;-)
Some help needed here as I'm stuck now without any idea on how to fix
this... after several days of work.
Here's the story:
As far as there is no login box on the home/root page of my website,
there are no problems. All login boxes on sub-pages are working fine.
But as soon as I put a login box on the home/root page, none are working
anymore depending on the browser and/or computer.
I'm using fe_login, but I know that the authentication process is a core
- I'm unable to login through chrome except when I do some
manipulations: Erasing session cookies, refreshing the page and logging.
This trick is not working on my customer browser/machine.
- I have no problem to login through IE9 but my customer do and a lot of
his customers too.
- Sometimes, I can't login through the home/root page of firefox,
whatever I do. To be able to login again, I have to use the sub-page
login box, when done, then I can login via the home/root page again.
- First user's login seems to be always ok. But after the first login,
problems mentioned here above are appearing.
- This issue was not present on my test server. It appeared on the
production one. Migrating back the production site to the test server
didn't solve the issue.
- I set the permalogin, but with all this issues, I removed it. But
didn't solve the issue neither.
- I tried to set those parameters to multiple values
$TYPO3_CONF_VARS['FE']['lockIP'] = '0';
$TYPO3_CONF_VARS['FE']['lifetime'] = '464'; // Modified or inserted by
TYPO3 Install Tool.
$TYPO3_CONF_VARS['FE']['sessionDataLifetime'] = '31536000'; // Modified
or inserted by TYPO3 Install Tool.
$TYPO3_CONF_VARS['FE']['permalogin'] = '1';
$TYPO3_CONF_VARS['FE']['maxSessionDataSize'] = '100000'; // Modified or
inserted by TYPO3 Install Tool.
But no hope...
I guess that it is a cookie issue but I don't know in which way as there
are such a variety of behavior... depending on machines, browser and
I did a lot of research on google, maybe in a wrong way as I didn't
found anything to help me much further. I just found some traces that
others had the same issue, but very few:
If someone could help, or at least give me a clue where to search, I'll
be very grateful as this issue is driving me mad.
None the less, I wish all of you a happy new year,
