Post subject: [Solved] Help with user being logged off, etc.

First of all, thanks to all who help out here; I'm glad I found this place.

I've been running my board since mid 2002, modding, patching, upgrading as needed along the way. The last complete upgrade to a current version was something like 2.0.14 or something like that. After that I patched here and there after being hacked a couple of times. Long story short, I had some time on my hands this week and did a fresh install of 2.0.23. I did not run the install script, just updated the tables in the db so they'd have all the current rows, etc and copied old config.php to the fresh install. Since installing I've added in this order:
    easymod0.4.0,
    ezPortal v2183e,
    full album pack 1.4.1,
    Admin_Userlist_2,
    security_question_1.1.0,
    show_last_visited_users_1.0.0,
    Topic Calendar v1.2.2


I've got a couple of issues that need to be resolved that I haven't been able to figure out. The biggest issue is one of my most active users has issues staying logged in when submitting a post or entering the photo album. See our dialogue here:
http://www.bois-blanc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=1842
Prior to the upgrade he had no problems navigating/posting on the site. So far he is the only user who is experiencing the problem. I read up on cookies and set cookies config to:
Code:
Cookie domain: .bois-blanc.com
Cookie name: boisblanc 
Cookie path: /phpBB2 
Cookie secure: Disabled
Session length: 3600 

I've read up on sessions a bit and after scoping the sessions_key table his user_id occupies 20 of the 37 rows. Probably the problem? How do I cure this? I've emptied the table, but it only fills up again with his id.

After we can solve this problem, I have a few other issues to deal with.

Thanks in advance,
Rob

Cookie path: set just "/": some browsers have always experimented difficulties with local path.

I already have it like that, but what happens it is very strange. On-line it seems to work pretty good for the majority, but on localhost (using XAMPP) I am logged off after every post or almost every move, beside simple browsing. icon_rolleyes.gif

Well, as it turns out, the problem was entirely on his end. He thought he'd deleted all the relevant cookies but upon closer inspection he had a couple of them still stuck in there. He's on and posting now. Thanks for the help, I'll be back for more.

Good that you found out!

This problem is solved in 99,99% of the cases by deleting the browsers cache and cookies.
