1.8 beta 3: "session expired" for any user

After I had been away from my desk for a long time, I got the normal "session expired" message. But now every time I try to log in, I get the same message. This also happens if I log in under another account that wasn't already logged in. And I successfully created another user account, but that one, too, gets the same messages.

I have cleared all my private data several times (I am using Firefox), but that didn't help. Is there something else I can try?

Ok, the problem went away. I force-killed all the Firefox instances that were running, and that cleared up something, and now the accounts are active again.

This problem keeps coming back. It seems to happen when a logged-in user doesn't do anything for a very long time (an hour or so). And now even closing everything doesn't seem to help -- my users and I are all getting the same message. Does anybody know of a server setting I can adjust?

You have long session time expiration if I understand correctly. TestLink allows just one login in time per client. Try to call index.php instead of login.php. I'm not sure if I understand correctly your problem. So maybe this information is out.

i am getting the exact same problem on 1.8 RC1, no matter calling login.php or index.php.

could anyone help on this?

I have similar issue. After debugging, I found out that the config_db.inc.php file which I crated has an extra empty line (line feed) after of ?>

After I removed that line feed, all users managed to log in.

Hope this helps.
