Mantis Cookies

Post by ElgerJ »


I am using 1.0.0rc1 on a non-modified XAMPP distribution. Whenever i try to login i get the following message: "Your browser either doesn't know how to handle cookies, or refuses to handle them."
I tried with IE and Firefox after i haxored my username in the mantis_user table.

Installing was no problem.

Any help would be great. If someone wants more details, i can give it.

Mantis uses cookies to pass information between pages. Your browser is probably configured not to accept cookies, or the cookie domain and the web page domain don't match.

I created a login page in order to make double login for both mantis and horde but when I put my login.php file outside the mantis folder it doesn't work. If I put it in the mantis folder it works perfectly and logs me in. I suppose it has to do with the domain cookie. How can I avoid this? The message when my script is outside the mantis folder is the same as ElgerJ's message.

Any ideas please? For example should I pass some specific value in a parameter like $f_from = gpc_get_string( 'from', '' ); ???

Thanks in advance for your reply. :)

Search for the word "cookie" in config_defaults_inc.php to know the configuration options that you may need to tune. The ones I think will need to alter are:


Are you using sub-domains? If so, then you will need to setup cookie domain to:

Hi ElgerJ ,
I've having this issue now, so i'm trying to investigate the cause of the problem.
May i know does your webpage or domain has any special character in it like "_"?
