Description Bjoern Kolbe 2007-04-19 06:35:25 UTC
I use the wiki on a Win 2k3 Server with IIS 6, PHP 5.2.1 and Mysql 5.0.37.

I used the installation guide on and had no problems to install 
the wiki.

If I use the wiki, when I'm not logged in, everything working fine.
But when I use an account (e.g. WikiSysop), I get always the Message: 
"My changes could not be saved, cause my sessiondata are lost. Please try 
again. If the problem persists, please logg off and on again."

But logg on and off changes nothing in the behavior of the wiki.

I tried also the wiki version 1.8.4, nothing changes.
I checked the configuration of all components and couldn't find a fault.
(to control the configruation I used the installation guide on

I tried to install the wiki with the XAMPP-Package, everything working fine.

But I must use IIS in our Company and I need restricted access to the wiki in 
our intranet. 

Can someone give me hint or solution to fix the problem?
