    If this is only one user, then it most certainly is a cookie problem with that user. He probably just used the browser's 'delete cookies' function rather than doing it manually. This often won't work with corrupted cookies. He'll need to locate the actuall cookies for your forums and delete them manually.

    I've had the same problem but with only one user complaining. I assumed it was a cookie problem, so I asked him to delete his cookies, but that hasn't helped.

    My cookie domain is blank and I'm running PHP 4.0.6.

    Uploading the php files will not affect your database (members, threads, posts, styles) in any way. Also I wouldn't expect it to have any affect on the 'not staying logged in' problem one way or another. Did you make the Cookie Domain blank like I suggested.

    So do you think uploading the php files will help with people not staying logged in?

    Also, if I upload the php files, I'm not going to lose any posts or other information am I?

    You might also want to clear the Cookie Domain and leave it blank.

    Cookie Domain: dfchicks.com

    Path to save cookies: /

    I deleted all cookies and I guess I'll wait and see.

    Sugarchick,

    The PHP info for the 4.1.2 server looks ok. What do you have as the settings for 'Cookie Domain' and 'Path to save cookies' in the Admin CP of the forum you're having problems with?

    Have you tried logging in with a different browser to see if you get the same problem? Also you might want to try is to manually deleting all the cookies for you domain to see if that clears up the problem.

    I'm having the same problem. It didn't start until about 2 weeks ago when I changed my password, its been fine for six months. A few other people complained that they are having the same problem. You can be logged in, type up your message to post, and then when you go to post it says you're not logged in and then you can't post the message you just typed and it does allow you to see that message :\ So that part sucks lol...

    Anyway, it is the php versions possibly? I'm not aware that they upgraded...but I run 2 sets of forums...they were both on 2.2.2 ...they were fine, then the one site starting acting funny. So I upgraded them both to 2.2.5 and the one is ok and the other is not. But they are on 2 different hosts and running different versions of php.

    Site that keeps logging out:
    php: v.4.1.2 http://www.dfchicks.com/phptest.php
    Forums: http://www.dfchicks.com/forums/

    Site that is ok:
    php: v 4.0.6 http://www.taskforcedagger.com/phptest.php
    Forums: http://www.taskforcedagger.com/forums/

    I don't know why your host would tell you to run php3 when the server is running PHP 4. Frankly along with running an insecure version of PHP, I'd be concerned about their expertise in this area.

    Try changing your Cookie Domain so that it's blank and see if that helps.

    I have all my files as php3, that's what I was told to do my my host.

    Cookie Domain: .cd-communications.com
    path: /

    Thanks. That verifies the PHP 4.0.4 at least. (Your host really should upgrade to at least 4.1.2 for security issues.)

    Do NOT apply the fixes I pointed to before. However I noticed that you set the phpinfo.php file with a .php3 extension. Why did you do this when your server is running PHP 4? Are you also running the .php3 version of vB?

    In your Admin CP, what do you have as the settings for 'Cookie Domain' and 'Path to save cookies'?
