Locked out of my forum
« on: January 23, 2021, 01:24:59 PM »
I seem to have made a slight boo boo. I was changing some settings regarding cookies and such, logged out of the forum, and now when I attempt to log in, I get "You were unable to login. Please check your cookie settings."

I tried in three different browsers, so I am fairly certain it's not a browser/cookie issue, but something I did. I do have direct database access capabilities. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Okay. I managed to fix it.

It was in the settings.php, $cookie_no_auth_secret

Changed that from 1 to 0 and I am back in.
