Description Kevin Millecam 2005-11-15 19:57:22 UTC
I just upgraded from v1.4.11 to v1.5.2 and my users are now getting this error
message when the log in (Yes, the system logs them in AND displays the error
message): Altiris Wiki uses cookies to log in users. You have cookies disabled.
Please enable them and try again.

I did some research on this issue and found that the problem was with the
session cookie.  The cookie with the session ID was not being set on the user's
machine yet the session was created on the server.  I was able to resolve this
issue by setting my PHP session.use_cookies variable to “On”.

Going to close this INVALID as it sounds like a configuration issue. If the
workaround in comment 1 doesn't fix it, please reopen or use the mailing list.

I am having the same problem and setting session.use_cookies to On did not work.
