Description Ey_Josh 2007-10-12 21:20:51 UTC
Sometimes my edits cannot be processed because of loss of session data.  I need it to work even though this bug is common because this bug can be fixed.

Is this problem occurring on a Wikimedia web site, or your own wiki? If your own wiki, please check that the session.save_path value in PHP.ini is set to a valid path for your platform, and that the user under which the web server runs has read/write permissions on it.

If session data is being lost, then it's being lost, and unless there's a server architecture problem, there's not a lot we *can* do about it, especially without more information.
