A couple of questions...

1.  Are you doing any form of HTTP or Apache authentication at all?
    If so, the two authentication systems may be interfering with
    each other, and we should go with just one.

2.  IIRC, your server is running on a Windows platform?  If so,
    then it may be that the PHP session_save_path configuration
    value isn't set properly; this is a common problem on windows
    systems.  You might try setting $EnableDiag=1; in local/config.php,
    then run ?action=phpinfo and see what the value is for
    session.save_path .  If it's not set, then add the following
    to the beginning of your config.php:


    Replace '/tmp' with the location of a valid temporary directory
    on your system.  Then PHP will be able to save its session data,
    and things will (hopefully) work.
