#489 closed defect (invalid)

Session cookie required when logged in

I just checked out the trunk (r679), setup a Trac instance, and logged in from the "front page". Wiki, Timeline, and Browse Source worked fine, but Roadmap, View Tickets, New Ticket, and Search all gave me the error about "session cookie required". Clicking on the "log in and continue" link just brought me back to the same page. At this point, I checked what cookies were set, and I had both trac_auth and trac_session set, with the path pointing to the cgi. Once I filled in my details for the session (name / e-mail address), everything started working normally.

Actually, everything isn't normal; the pages that were complaining about a session cookie now display, but Trac doesn't acknowledge that I'm logged in; I get a login button etc.

I should probably mention that I'm using Mozilla Firefox 0.8 on Debian Sid.

Yet more info; if I configure Apache to require auth on trac.cgi, instead of trac.cgi/login, then everything works (aside from unauthenticated access obviously being broken).

I'm seeing this problem too, and very frequently, but haven't yet been able to systematically reproduce it.

Increasing severity/priority as this is very annoying :-/

Turns out the problem was caused by a transparent proxy in the way; requests were coming from different IP addresses, so the auth cookie wasn't matching. I haven't experienced any problems since working around this.
