Hi There,

For some reason, I cannot log into PHP portals. Whenever we attempt to log in we are automatically logged out. Occasionally we can successfully login to portals running a PHP scripts.

we have tried using multiple browsers and still to no avail.

Anyone who has any tips and advise on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advanced.

You need to be more specific.  Browsers do not directly have anything to do with PHP.  Login forms in browsers are the same for all scripting languages and have nothing specific for PHP.  However, most PHP 'portals' or other systems requiring a login use cookies to keep track of the session.  If you have cookies blocked for some reason, that would be why your logins don't work.

also check whether any restrictions on multiple sign in on your portals. you need to be enabled cookies on your browser if the portals require to use.

Cookies and JavaScript are pretty much required if you want to use the WWW these days.  Make sure your browser is accepting and returning both of them.

You can get free and open-source copies of Firefox and Firebug. This will enable you to see the cookies and the JavaScript as it runs.

I have ensured that browser cookies are enabled, this seems to only be an issue within out LAN as we can access the PHP portals without any problem using the same computers connected to a different network.

Any ideas?

Then you need to look at the firewall and see what filtering is being done on your connection.  I saw one question here where they got a little overzealous and in there attempt to block ads, they also blocked javascript from third party sites... like jQuery from Google which is frequently used on many web sites.

Agree with Dave.  You might want to ask a moderator to put this into different zones.  It does not appear to be related to either PHP or web browsers.

Issue has been resolved, our firewall seemed to be restricting portal access.
