I've been using PMWiki for a few years, though I'm far from an expert in
it. I use it for coordinating some user groups and non-profit orgs.
I just upgraded my server from Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04LTS. Everything
seems to be pretty much working, but I'm finding for pages with
passwords in PMWiki, I have to enter the password each time. The
authentication doesn't last even for seconds. I have tried multiple
browsers and multiple client OSes and machines to ensure this is not a
I've scanned the list and here's the relevant settings that might be
affecting it in /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini:
session.cache_expire = 180
session.gc_divisor = 1000
session.gc_maxlifetime = 1440
Obviously a lot changed when I upgraded, so I'm not positive whether the
problem is with PHP, PMWiki, or Apache. I can say that HTTP auth works
as usual for other things I have on the same server.
What can I look at next?
