Login/logout with mod_python doesn't work well - probably session problem

Description

Sometimes trac login/logout doesn't work well.

  • sometimes login doesn't logs you in
  • after logged , several clicks, and then you've been logout (no question) you can login again by clicking login - no ask for pwd something with the session on the server.
  • with standalone server (tracd) no problem, only in mod_python installation
  • maybe it is in ie is more often than in ff.

We use Trac 0.11dev-r6038 which is installed on linux(ubuntu7.04)+apache+mod_python.

Apache error.log shows from time to time (sometimes each 40s new entry):

[notice] mod_python: (Re)importing module 'trac.web.modpython_frontend'

maybe this cause these problems.

Trac immediatly forgets my ID and that I am logged in.

I added pythondebug on to apache2.conf, but there was not more output.

In trac.ini I increased log-level to debug. The output is quite big (/opt/trac-intes/log/trac.log), but it isn't producing errors, just strange session manipulation, i.e. seems to be obvious - Session ID changes:

2007-10-01 15:25:41,674 Trac[session] DEBUG: Retrieving session for ID '42caeaaa0877093b7c89fb86'
2007-10-01 15:25:45,462 Trac[session] DEBUG: Retrieving session for ID 'ulm2'
2007-10-01 15:26:54,386 Trac[session] DEBUG: Retrieving session for ID '27ba53f2a66bc30588f9d545'

Than it works again: 
2007-10-01 15:32:01,210 Trac[session] DEBUG: Retrieving session for ID 'ulm2'
2007-10-01 15:32:01,353 Trac[session] DEBUG: Retrieving session for ID u'ulm2'

And than it doesn't work again:
2007-10-01 15:33:12,157 Trac[session] DEBUG: Retrieving session for ID '189a645348270b5879e40923'
2007-10-01 15:34:00,842 Trac[session] DEBUG: Retrieving session for ID '189a645348270b5879e40923'

And than I try to login again:
2007-10-01 15:35:00,628 Trac[session] DEBUG: Retrieving session for ID '189a645348270b5879e40923'

2007-10-01 15:35:13,536 Trac[session] DEBUG: Retrieving session for ID '02aab0875c567d7b77d5debb'

With standalone server (tracd) no problem, i.e. I ran tracd and in the log the Session ID didn't change.

  • Milestone 0.11 deleted

There's maybe something in Apache which messes up the cookies, e.g. http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=26002 or something similar.

comment:2 Changed 7 years ago by anonymous

maybe that could be problem, i'll give a shot. but how do you explain that this problem started to occur after upgrade trac 0.10 to 0.11dev-r6038? Maybe something is still problematic in trac?

Replying to cboos:

sorry didn't use reply button for my last comment.

comment:4 Changed 7 years ago by trebor74hr@…

It seems that in our case this is happening in trac standalone too, but rare. the same effect. Maybe it has some relation to our db system which is mysql /innodb, maybe something with uncommited changes to db.

What I did: I opened existing ticket 5142, updated it and submit the changes. The changes were saved, but trac logged me out. It is funny that there is request for ticket 5143 which can't be generated in our system since our mysql ticket numbers ending with number 2.

The log is:

Mmaybe is the conincidence, maybe not, but our trac 0.11dev (standalone+win32) became very slow after this and very memory dirsty (>250mb), i had to restart it. it reported lots of such errors:

  File "z:\env-lib\python24\lib\site-packages\Trac-0.11dev_r6038-py2.4.egg\trac\web\wsgi.py", line 199, in _write

    self._sock.sendall(buffer)
error: (10053, 'Software caused connection abort')

we use python 2.4.

is this ok? every login produces new trac_auth, every logout new trac_session, old are not deleted

comment:5 Changed 7 years ago by trebor74hr@…

i tried to reproduce the strange session behavior with tracking cookies (firefox/options/privacy/show cookies).

since the cookie manager is independent of ff, and is updated immediately after cookie changes, it can be used for tracking. I deleted all cookies, what puts me in logout state, and then on clean state i started inducing the error.

i notified following (no error scenario):

  • empty
  • open the page →cookie is filled with some form and session
  • surf - no changes
  • login → new cookie auth
  • surf - no changes
  • logout → new cookie session (old preserved, so 2 session entries, and 1 auth)
  • surf → no changes
  • login → new cookie auth (old preserved, so 2 auth, and 2 session entries) …

so every logout generates new session, and every login new auth cookie. nothing is deleted. if you try to remove one cookie (e.g. auth) all auth cookies dissapear and for N-1 deleted cookie one blank cookie out of the folder is created (some kind of firefox unhandled state). if you remove auth cookies, since all auth dissapear, then you've been logged out. I send attachment that shows the case.

at the end i coudn't reproduce the error :(, but my collegue reproduced it (so it is stile alive), but with no cookie tracking, so no details.

I have been experiencing automatic session termination very frequently at https://projectfortress.sun.com/Projects/Community/wiki/ which is running Trac 0.10.3. It makes the site almost unusable. I do not know if this is related to mod_python (I do not know how the site is implemented). However, many operations fail. Often, when I edit a page then try to submit my changes, I get

editing a page, my session terminates and I get

  Forbidden

WIKI_MODIFY privileges are required to perform this operation

In addition to this session termination problem:

  • issuing a BACK command in the browser to return to the edit window (after getting this Forbidden messages) loses all my edits; the edit area is reset the previous (saved) page content, not the text that I had edited.
  • logging in takes a long time, from 10 to 15 seconds.

Replying to David.Biesack@sas.com:

Hi again,

we have 2 trac installations, one on Linux+apache+py25+mod_python and one win32+py24+standalone. On win32+py24+standalone we don't have any of these problems. The trac version is the same, so cause should be in apache/mod_python/py25 (least probable). The cause can be like described in first post from cboos (http://trac.edgewall.org/ticket/6121#comment:1).

I found the way to investigate the problem (as described in prev post), but since it is not critical for us, i'll do this later. The problem is probably because of some fault cookie managing. If you have the error constantly appearing, you can try tracing cookies like this:

  • start firefox
  • options/privacy/show cookies → new dialog Cookies
  • remove all cookis (if this is ok for you)
  • open trac page
  • watch what happens in cookies dialog (it is auto-refreshed)
  • login / do something / logout … try to reproduce the error and watch if cookies are changed ok

if you find something strange, please report it … Good luck ;)

  • Priority changed from high to lowest
  • Severity changed from major to minor

This seems to arise from having multiple connections to the internet going through the same router. In other words, if your ip address changes while you are logged in you lose your login info and you are not allowed to login again.

Can you have a look at #3211?

comment:11 Changed 7 years ago by trebor74hr@…

I think I found a workaround, but don't know the reason. It seems that web/auth.py has problem. I use auth by ip:

  • new session is created for logged user - insert into auth_cookie
  • commit
  • (i check in db and there is new entry for the user / ip)
  • select for sessionid from auth_cookie - NO RECORD FOUND'''
  • if no record - log out the user - send expired authcookie=

Note that delete from auth cookie table is not done, so after several unsuccessful logins i get for the same user/same ip lot of sessions in auth_cookie. It isn't allways like this, sometimes the

I tried to solve the problem with putting commit before select and it seems to be functioning (hadn't reproduced error since). I send workaround in attach. This happens only on ubuntu/apache/mod_python/trac configuration, on win32/standalone it doesn't happen. Don't really know why is this.

I'm going to report the same problem here. Description: User clicks "login" and gets the basic http-auth challenge popup. User types username and password and hits enter. User is successfully logged in. User clicks "logout". User seems to be logged out and has all rights associated with annonymous users. User clicks "login" again. No challenge popup and user is logged in again automatically. User closes down browser completely, restarts browser and clicks "login". Auth challenge box comes up again.

I've tried this on firefox and IE, latest versions of both. I've used every cookie manager I know to get rid of all cookies, session, stored, in-memory, and the results are the same. Unless the browser is restarted, the user is semi-permenently logged in and there is no way to log in as a different user.

Platform specs: CentOS4 Apache 2.2.6 apr 1.2.11 apr-util 1.2.10 mod_python 3.3.1 Python 2.5.1 trac trunk v6222

This is a really embarrasing bug, as I'm trying to get my current company to use this as I did my last (Comcast), and I can't even demo simple authentication. I know I'm dealing with the dev trunk here, but login problems???

comment:15 in reply to: ↑ 14 Changed 7 years ago by ogradyj@…

Replying to ogradyj@gsicommerce.com: Never mind. I found a really nice discussion that outlines why using HTTP basic auth is BAD.

http://www.nabble.com/Why-my-trac-can-not-logout-t4726016.html

This information should be prominent in the TracGuide somewhere near the sections for setting up authentication. Also, you'd think that authorisation would be part of the main platform, and not a plugin? Surely logging in to a trac project can't be considered 3rd party functionality?

Bottom line, use AccountManagerPlugin:

  • Priority changed from lowest to normal

I'm using Windows environment to run trac and it's run in standalone server. I have a bad time with caching the authentication session in both FF and IE6. As an Eg. If I login as Abc using PW 1234 and then try to logout, then it display link but if i click on there there is no authentication required to login again. Simply the login window is not appearing it directly login to Trac. Can you all pls help me on this, How to solve this critical issue. Thank you very much

Your issue is not related to this ticket. You're facing the "HTTP authentication" issue. Search the Trac DB, the MailingList archive to find tips and workaround.

I'm having the same problem. I keep getting logged out after a couple of clicks. I'm using 0.11b1, Python 2.5, Apache 2.0 on Win XP.

By the way - as I try to log this Akismet is giving me a problem. Pretty damn irritating.

My IP address isn't changing while logged in. Everything is being done as localhost. I'm running Trac 0.11.6 under Apache 2.2.8 on a 10.5.8 Mac OS X machine, but had the same issues with 0.11rc2.

I've tried both mod_python and mod_wsgi and they both "forget" I'm logged in and the "login" link is missing. Sometimes repeatedly trying to load the same page gets it to "remember". Sometimes flushing Trac's cookies seems to help, or maybe it's just coincidence.

Hey,

I am still getting the issue. My TRAC installation is getting repeatedely log out on performing login or submitting tickets. The behavior is seen in general, irrespective of whether the installation is run on FF/Chrome/IE.

It always dispalys Forbidden even though the user is having all the rights to play on.

  • Milestone next-minor-0.12.x deleted
  • Resolution set to cantfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

I'm going to close this, as this ticket is likely not going any further.

In some cases it seems to be a genuine problem with Apache (comment:1), or perhaps in combination with mod_python. As mod_python is now unsupported, if people are experiencing this kind of issues, they should try to migrate to mod_wsgi.

In some other cases, this can be a problem with routers (comment:9, comment:10).

If anyone experience the same symptoms (spurious logouts) and it's not due to one of the above causes, then please open a new ticket, with all the appropriate information (how exactly this happens, what changes are observed in the cookies, etc.).
