Login problems when logging in as a regular user

Hi Guys

I've made two minibb's on my server.
I've created the same user on the two, they have the same password (I've verified this by looking in the MySQL database).
They were working yesterday, before I upgraded my servers hardware, but now I can't log in the the Intranet forum.
I can still log in the the Internet forum.
I've tried copying a brand new minibb 1.5 installation to the server, and then copy the old setup_options on top of it. I can't get it to work properly.
It seems that I can write messages with my user (I've created a test message), but it does not stay logged in. What in the heck can be wrong?

That could be your cookie settings / cookie lifetime. Push it up by some amount, it's in the setup_options.php as far as I remember ( =

These are the settings:


I think they look ok, strange?

Try to leave $cookiedomain setting empty.

I just used the forum like an hour ago. Now I can't login anymore. Can't login with the admin account, nor with any other user account. Is something wrong? I don't get error messages...

Probably, you have reset your cookie settings?..

If you are using Opera and upgraded it during that hour that is the reason.
There is a bug in Opera 7.1, it can't log in.
Opera Opera 6 and 7.2 for example can.

Unbelievingly you should be so lucky :-)

From my recent experience: a user has reported me that it can't log in to one of my forums. His username was kind of "Lambda Group" (note it consists of two words and some space between them). It took me huge time to verify database and understand the nature of the error, until I discovered there are TWO SPACES in the username, but the user has obviously typed just one.

Be careful when registering at forums. 2 spaces are not similar to 1 in programming ;-)

P.S. That's another brick into the wall of why I am being against any spaces and specific symbols in usernames. There will be more questions and "bug reports" than you as forums admin could expect.
