Invalid session in forums

3.9.15. Invalid session in forums

Figure 3-33. Administration panel: Forums.

Administration panel: Forums.

You installed the PHP-Nuke Forum (which is the phpBB forum starting v.6.5 of PHP-Nuke, see Section 7.1.1), but now, when you try to access it you get the error:

Invalid session.

Solution: In the forum configuration, go to the Cookies section and change the name of the cookie file from "phpbb2mysql " to something more original or unique, like "phpbb2mysql2" . You also need to have the right cookie domain, i.e. if you have installed the forum under, the cookie domain should be too.

"What is this session id anyway?", you may ask. This is quite a technical matter and is covered in detail in Chapter 10.
