I’m usually permanently logged in here from this computer. Today, clicking the “Discussion” link from the banner on the home page got me an Apache error. I don’t recall exactly what it said (it ended something like “password: NO”), but it prompted me to look at the top of the page—which showed me to be logged out. I was partway through filling in the log-in form when I noticed that I was now already shown as logged in! So I clicked “Your Account” … and got the error message again. Back to the log-in form, which I completed and submitted this time, and everything is normal now.

I had the same thing happen to me, possibly around the same time. If the web server cannot contact the database server then it cannot verify your account details, and you won't see the "logged in as..." in the upper right corner. I checked the database server and could not find an obvious direct cause.

I should mention that we have indications that the disk drive on which this all sits is slowly dying. A new one is on order, and if all goes well will be installed before the old one fails. We shall see....

Quick, backup all and move it to a ramdisk. Just make sure the power doesn't go down before you have the chance to install the new hardware. :-D

As I was reading this thread just now...

Already too late to make a copy?
Or did the RAMdisk not survive?

Backups have been made, and there are copies to various partitions. The new drive has been installed and partitioned, but the data have not yet been copied over. Meanwhile, the old disk is limping along, giving us warnings of failure, but i'ts "not dead yet".

I am new to Pirates, and like to stop by at least once a day to take a look to see what's new. Issue is I am telling Pirates to keep me logged in, but it does not. I do not have this issue with any other project, so I know my cookies work correctly.

No idea. This kept plaguing me for a long time during the sommer on the BOINC_dev message boards. Each time I've started a new instance of IE7, I had to log in there. Even when I was logged in on another IE instance. It was not happening on any other project and neither with SeaMonkey nor with Safari on BOINC_dev. After more than a month it finally decided to keep me logged in.

We do have a slightly non-standard setup here. I'd like to figure out if there really are problems with it. How about trying this: logout (don't just go away and come back later) and then log in again. The logout should clear all old cookies (perhaps you can check it) and the login should set only the right ones (if you select the "stay logged in" option).

I noticed a problem just before this post:
pirates.spy-hill.net/forum_thread.php?id=967&nowrap=true#7826
At that time I went looking for pirate cookies, but came up empty.
Just tried again on a different computer and still don't see any pirate cookies.
Since the above mentioned post, I have to log in every time after I close the browser.

OK, I have tested this. If I close the browser I lose the cookie. This is the only one that does that of all my normally logged in projects.

So every few days when I reboot (or when Firefox crashes), I have to log in.

I was able to reproduce this, and I've fixed it (I think -- please check).

The problem was that the name of the variable for the checkbox to keep the cookie was changed in one file, but not the other.

Thank you for reporting this.

Now how about a little reward, some work to do (-:

Been debugging software since the late 70s, I now debug network issues... guess I never get away from helping others fix issues. I never call them mistakes, because I too programmed in the 70s-80s. Bugs are a natural issue and have to be maintained.
