[Pmwiki-users] Password problem
Sun Dec 26 06:56:10 CST 2004
Maybe someone can shed some light on this little problem I'm having
I've been running v2.0b10 as a wikifarm and just upgraded to v2.0b13
with no change in this behavior.
In building my site I set passwords in the field local/config.php files:
$DefaultPasswords['admin'] = crypt('xxx');
$DefaultPasswords['edit'] = crypt('xxx');
I thought this was working as it should but now I'm not so sure :-) I
now realize that sessions were never timing out. Once I started my
browser and visited a page for an edit, after the initial password
request I never got another password request on that page or anywhere
else in the farm, even if I came back days later (assuming the browser
was still running - or at least I think it was; maybe I'm just
confusing the issue here)
Anyway, on to the problem of the day. Today I went to a page, made a
large, time consuming edit - and lost it (grumble - growl). When I went
to save it, I was asked for my password and since I had been editing
for some time I thought maybe the session had expired. I entered the
password and was looped back to the original unedited page.
I subsequently tried a test edit and preview instead of save. Same
thing, a password request and a loop back to the original edit screen,
no preview showing.
I then deleted the PHPSESSIONID cookie. Same symptoms. A new
PHPSESSIONID cookie is getting set when the edit page is clicked.
I've been running Safari and tried FireFox - same symptoms which seems
to rule out something on my Mac.
What could have changed overnight?
