    New user here. I run a small webhost. I tried to install this program for a client, and everything went smoothly. It finished the install and told me the username admin and password in single quotes. Figured the program was successful and forwarded the info to my client. They tried to login and failed. I tried to login afterwards and failed. I did a fresh install (wipe dir and db) with same result.

    I found a similar dated discussion:

    http://www.plogger.org/forum/discussion/165/invalid-login-on-fresh-install/

    I also tried this to no avail:

    http://www.plogger.org/forum/discussion/2066/fresh-install-cannot-login/

    I figured the last thing I could do is edit the md5 has on the mysql db. I double checked that plogger was able to write to the db (it did). However I am fearful that this may just be the beginning of many more errors if something is setup wrong on my box.

    PS we run centos 5.2.

    felixo,

    Try this. It may be a conflict with a previous cookie set for your system / domain. This is fixed in the current SVN, but not for the beta3 download.

    Tried what you suggested. You should look in admin/index.php. It does not have what your snippet does on your link. Alas plogger for us is not working.

    How can the stable release have such a bug? Any and all new users would encounter this install bug? Would simply wiping cookies after install work?

    Where is the cvs repository so I can checkout the latest version?

    I changed my post to reflect the old beta3 code (I had updated code from a previous version, but not the beta3 version). You should try it again.

    While we try to catch all bugs, we cannot find them all as different servers have different quirks. It was also released as a beta version. Regarding "any and all" users, this beta3 bug should only occur if the website has another program on it that uses cookies for a login form and uses the input name / id "username" or "password" (pretty generic). Since Plogger uses a $_REQUEST function in the plog-admin.php file, it will look for $_POST, $_GET, and $_COOKIE variables, and since $_COOKIE variables are located at the end of the list, they will overwrite any previous $_GET or $_POST variables when conflicting names / ids are used.

    Posted By: felixoWhere is the cvs repository so I can checkout the latest version?
    The latest code can be found here. Although if you have already begun to input images, you may want to only use revision r549, previous to the restructuring of the Plogger directories / files (but from your description, you probably have not added any images if you have been unable to login). Please note that while we hope the current SVN is stable, but still may have some bugs in it, so please report back any issues you can find with the current codebase. We are working to have a very stable release very soon.

    felixo,

    Is there any way I can take a look at your install? You can email me at sidtheduck splat gmail dot com if you don't want to post your info on the forums.

    Sent you an email, but likely not. Perhaps we could make a dummy account and try the shenanigans all over again...

    This is resolved. Sidtheduck proposed that PHP sessions were misconfigured. Indeed Centos 5.2 fresh out of the box was not correctly set in conjunction with fastcgi. Thanks!
