Re: Lost in Login Loop



What did you set mod_rewrite to in your config.php? If you set it to true or slugs, you might want to try setting it to false.

$bb->mod_rewrite = false;

That’s right after the admin email you entered.

Also, there used to be a problem where depending on which login form you used (the one in the header or the one in the body of the page after you fail to login) you would get in a redirect loop that said something to the effect of:

The page isn't redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is
redirecting the request for this address
in a way that will never complete.


If that doesn’t help, then I think posting the URL to the broken forum would be the best thing so people can see what’s actually going on.

I don’t think it’s cookies or permissions. I think it’s the mod_rewrite setting and your host does not support rewrite rules in the .htaccess file, or you haven’t created the .htaccess.
