Login redirectproblem on different computers

I have the same site files on two different computers. On the desktop the login works properly, and redirects to the proper page.

On the laptop the login reloads login.php, with the following in the address bar:

http://localhost/sanew/login.php?accesscheck=%2Fsanew%2Fuserhome.php%3F

What's (not) happening??

Thanks,

Mike

what browser is used on the desktop versus the laptop?

I'll hazard a guess that the laptop uses IE? IE can be notoriously difficult with security settings, even from one computer to the next on the same domain.

see if the info in this post helps:

Firefox on both

Cleared cookie for localhost -- no joy. Same problem in IE.

I'll need to troubleshoot directly, see the private message section.


NO, not up late - this is early for me, I'm a night owl, I think best after 9pm no matter how much coffee i have in the morning (in my previous career I was a chef). just working late...

I'll have to check on the remote server where the site will reside. I'm pretty sure the problem doesn't exist there.

Will advise tomorrow. It's just weird -- running localhost on both machines and Apache/PHP/MySQL are set up the same on both.

Thanks -- will advise. .

without being able to reproduce, thers not realy something I can troubleshoot.

could be any number of things really.

try running the session test file from this post on the laptop:

it could be that the laptop has a session management problem. impossible to tell, really, without being able to reproduce on my end.


at the end of the day if it works on the live server that is end goal right?

Understood -- I'll grab the session test and see what it reveals.

Agreed --- what kind of chef?? That's a whiplash kind of career change!!!

ETA: sessiontest.php showed a session problem with the server -- guess I'll be checking that tomorrow. Will it be in php.ini or http.conf? I'll probably copy both from the PC that works and see if that helps

ETA: Corrected the session save path in php.ini -- fixed it.

Thanks,Jason. . . have a Starbucks on me!!

I was head chef at few restaurants.I started in the food service industry at the age of 14 and spent the next 16 working through every position except Host and Bar Tender.

it really wasn't that big a career change: web design and food design share the same basic principles. you know the old saying - you eat with your eyes. same holds true when browsing web pages.
