Typo login problem

Hi,

I apologize in advance if this got double-posted – I got a strange
reply from the list serv when I sent it originally.

We’re running Typo 4.1, and until recently it was working. But now,
we are no longer able to log in.

Based on telnet sessions to the web host, it appears that user.rb
properly authenticates the user, and redirects them to “/admin/
content” – but then /admin/content redirects them back to the login
page again – which I think is because the session functionality is
broken.

Typo seems to generate a new session_id cookie with each request, and
I think this is the problem. When I look in the database, I notice 3
new session rows when I:

  • go to the login page
  • log in
  • get redirected back to the login page

Thanks in advance if anyone can help…
Phillip

telnet? shudder

Hm. I seem to recall a similar problem with a completely different Rails
app. [looks in logs] Yes, exactly, new session id with every request.
Never
solved that, really, so here are some questions:

  • Which browser are you using?
  • Are you sure your browser allows cookies?
  • Have you tried with a completely different browser?

Thanks for your reply!

Telnet to port 80, not telnet for shell access…

    Yeah, this is pretty much across the board. It does seem to be a
    rails problem, but it’s only appearing in our typo instance (and we
    have several other rails apps).

Oh well, I guess I’ll have to dig into rails a bit more.

Thanks again for your reply.
