Pligg Support

Would anyone know why I can create a user using an external IP but cannot log with that said user afterwards?

If I create a user locally, I can log in locally, but not from an external connection.
hum... ???

Possible Answers

    Hi again.. Is it possible the port number affects it?

    I made a brand new install, on a brand new server: and this time... I can not log in locally while the port is 8001 internal and 8011 external.

    I've never tried Pligg from anything but port 80. I would have thought it would work but another user said his Pligg wouldn't run on 8080 either.

    You might want to dig into the code to discover way.

    Or try adding a post yourself and then see if you can see it from off the internal network. I suspected the SQL connection the other time but never heard anymore about it from that other user.

    Unless you're running a server within your home/office network then all logins are external. In other words if you host at GoDaddy and you login from your home/office which is in another state then your login is external (from another IP).

    So, if the website is reachable then the user should be able to login. Look at the user's account in admin and make sure they are enabled (make sure they verified their email if you have email verification turned on). They should be a 'normal' user (not a 'spammer' in the settings.

    Let us know what you see if this info doesn't help. Or give a URL so one of us might register to test the account setup functions..

    Hey Jeff, thanks a lot. The hint came when you mentioned about a user with the same issue on port 8080.. The port is the issue.

    I'm stuck with an ISP blocking port 80, but I managed to recreate the environment and confirm the "bug" or "feature" :)

    So port 80 = good (logs in ok)

    any other port = bad

    The symptoms are funny:

    good user/bad passwd = warning + no auth

    bad user/bad passwd = warning + no auth

    good user/good passwd = no warning + no auth

    Hi, thanks for your quick response.

    Here's where all the action occurs: />
    user: admin

    password: admin

    Oh, yeah, I tried that and got a 404 error after submitting either my own registration or your default login.
