I wonder if there is a timeout setting in the cookie or forum software which renders the cookie session invalid after a set time. Does it work for a certain amount of time then stop?

Can you clarify if this is an issue since the server change (approx 3 weeks ago)?

I've had a look at this: https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3 ... -settings/

I will be modifying the cookie settings in the next week or two. Just to give a heads up (in case users experience issues). I will post here when I do.

Edit:
Could also be a bug in current forum version as latest version corrects something described as "issues with form token validation during login"

Ok I have changed the cookie setting. If you have any issues logging in, clear cookies/cache and then try again. Let me know the result.

For those that the cookie update didn't work can you clarify if you cleared cache/cookies and if so what browser, operating system and device are you are using.

We really need more info before we can pin down the issue.
