Title: Session verification failed.
Post by: CesarManara on August 30, 2019, 02:57:25 PM
Hi, I just installed a brand new SMF forum and a few mods, after sometime, I got logged out and it asked me to login again - however, whenever I try, I get: Session verification failed. Please try logging out and back in again, and then try again.

What I've tried:
clean out the Sessions, log_activity, log_errors tables.
clean out session files on my tmp folder on my server
use a different browser (chrome, ie and firefox).
clean out cookies.

Nothing seems to have helped, any ideas how to fix this? I cannot logout to login again, the error is whenever I try to login.

Using SMF 2.1 RC2. No themes installed.

which version of SMF are you using?

have you changed the theme to a custom one?

are you trying to use SMF 2.1 in production? it is not really recommended to do so unless you are able to troubleshoot issues that come up. I would recommend you to install SMF 2.0.15 and see if the issue happens there.

I've had success in using 2.1 before in production - It's not going to be a super big forum and I don't mind troubleshooting things. This has been beyond my abilities so far, though.
If I can't fix this, I could just do a new clean install again.

Sometimes changing the cookie # works...

I did a reset (put brand new ones) of all files on /Sources and /themes/default - that made it work again. I guess now to install mods one by one and see which caused the problem.
