The e-commerce.

Customers can't log in


Recommended Posts

In short, the login page keeps refreshing when customers click continue if they're being asked to log in. For example, if they try to write a review or view order history (and the URL they're being directed to contains ?order_id=12 or something similar).


I think it's something to do with sessions... so here are my settings:


Session Directory /tmp

Force Cookie Use False

Check SSL Session ID False

Check User Agent False

Check IP Address True

Prevent Spider Sessions True

Recreate Session True



I fixed the reviews thing by allowing guest reviews, but the link in order confirmation emails doesn't work.


I've set up a demo order and demo account so you can try it to see what I mean:


Username: [email protected]

Password: Tester


Link to "order status" in email: https://pluto.host-care.com/~thesebwe/shop/...php?order_id=22

(Shared SSL)


Website for normal login: http://www.thesebweb.com



Anyone know what's causing this?

I'd say one or both of these are incorrectlly set in the configure file:


  define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', '');
 define('HTTPS_COOKIE_PATH', '');

If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.
