Index Button leads to login form and nothing happens

Post by NitramOnuc » Sat Oct 05, 2019 7:35 pm

I have installed 3.3.0 Sphider version

If I want to start indexing process, nothing happens, but login form appears again. Why?

Maybe it depends on this: I had to add a line in auth.php:

session_save_path('/home/m1231/sessions');

Without this I could not get to admin page; I'm using Sphider on my own Website, which is built with PmWiki. Up to a few weeks ago I was using original Sphider v1.36, this worked.

Any idea?

The problem is likely that the session id is not being saved or otherwise inaccessible. I've never encountered this so have no ideas.
Maybe this will help: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/155 ... eing-saved

UPDATE: Just a thought... Sphider sessions do use cookies. Does your browser accept cookies?
