Sign in Problems

edited July 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hey Guys,
Im having a few problems with Vanilla, I have it installed on my localhost so I can test out extensions/styles etc. Problem is I haven't been able to sign in to it. I've done everything I can possibly think off including re-installing it and creating a new database but the problem is still happening.

It just redirects me back to the discussions page, after I input my details?

Any ideas?

    it could be a problem with your php session setting

    No cookie being established?

    Not too sure how to get around this other than editing your hosts file (in C:\windows\ on 98, C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\ on xp) with a dummy domain: vanilla.testthen set
    as your cookie domain in the install script, and type
    in your address bar instead of

    I don't even know if this would work, but its worth a try.

    I was thinking to a problem with session.save_path in php.ini

    If you have had a previous installation on your localhost, you might need to clear your cookies.
