Chances are that there's something wrong with the server's
handling of PHP sessions.
If you're running on a windows-based server, you may need to
explicitly set the session.save_path configuration variable,
as a lot of times the default doesn't work with Windows.
This can be set in the php.ini configuration file, or it can be set
in local/config.php via something like:
If it's on a Unix-like platform, then you've already narrowed it
down to problems with sessions -- make sure that the webserver has
write access to whatever directory is being used for session.save_path
(normally /tmp ).
If neither of those help, is there a url we could look at?
