The answer is Yes, although you might wanna make sure and wait for another person to confirm it as I am not sure. Better yet, why don't you give a call to the iPage guys because they can answer you better...

Wrong login.php file... that's the eng lang file..

It sounds like a cookie problem... might even be in you IE settings... is everyone who signs up being sent to the login page or just you?.

I would look at the cookie settings in you admin.. but I wish I had a straight forward anwser for you....

Comment #3

Some customers don't have a problem, but I have got numerous email from customers who sign on then look at a product and it asks them to sign in again and keeps repeating itself by sending them to the signin page..

Thanx in advance..


Here's the login.phphopefully the right one........

Comment #4

I had that problem and changed my settings in admin. I think what fixed it is changing "check user IP" to false. It was mainly Aol users with the problem. I'm hoping everything else works, my sales are still way down..


Comment #5

Could be a problem with a patch they installed on their computers for IE 6.0. The patch reference number that causes the problem is: KB832894..

You can get a fix for the patch here from Microsoft:.


If you tell your customers to go to Microsoft to get the patch be sure to give them the link. The fix does not come up when doing a Windows update as the fix has not yet been made available through a general security update event...

Comment #6

I am having the same problem and have not found a solution in any forum yet. I have tried changing my settings in the admin section, I also downloaded and installed the patch from Microsoft. Still no luck. I am not using AOL either. Other than this everything seems to work great.. but that is no good if no one can login to the site...

Comment #7

This problem appeared to me this morning:.

I tried the modification proposed in.

This post.

, but on the file catalog/includes/classes/sessions.php instead of the admin one. Now it works, but it was also working during one month wihout this modification....

There can be also a problem with IE6, look.


, but in my case the problem was with 3 different brosers..

Hope it helps..

Comment #8

Okay, let's sort things out here. If this is the problem that I think it is, the problem you're having is a common one. The customer tries to Login, or to Sign Up for an account, or tries to proceed to checkout - and they end up back at the Login page again. It has nothing to do with the login.php file. It has everything to do with your includes.configure.php file! This what what it should look like. There may be variations, according to your iPage hosting companies setup, whether you use a shared ssl, or a full sll.
