I'm looking for other threads on the login issue but not seeing them. Can you give me some links? viewtopic.php?f=430&t=324441 viewtopic.php?f=430&p=1412557 viewtopic.php?f=304&t=325033 viewtopic.php?f=430&t=324934
At least one of those reports a problem with backend login but not something I've had.
Also please run forum post assistant and paste the results.
Also say what extensions you have installed
Will do. I patched the stripos() code because I was specifically trying to beta test a component on PHP4 on J1.5.7, so I'll create a new perfectly clean occurrence of J1.5.7 and see if I can reproduce it, with no components installed etc. Give me a couple of hours and I'll be back.
The machine i know I can produce the error on which i've now patched is pretty clean. I was beta testing AEC but it happens with AEC installed or not. Think the only other component is a file manager in the backend.
Please turn error reporting to maximum and do some tests..
Will do but the error message was appearing on my standard config of error reporting (it is a dev server so is fairly high) as: Fatal error: Call to undefined function: stripos() in /home/.../www/joomla/libraries/joomla/environment/uri.php on line 675
So using the fix quoted on here of course fixes it. Which is fine.
Please explain EXACTLY what happens when you try to log in.
Please do this for using the login module and using the component (menu link). Also try it without any redirect on login and with a redirect.
OK the situation I can tell you about is: login module, no-login redirection, this was when it produced the above error.
I'll run through all the scenarios on a completely clean server and post the detail with Post Assistant.
