    More please. :)

    Info that is.

    What version was it?
    Was this installed through Cpanel or Manually?

    I use 2.0 (with an upgrade patch) and installed manually. Never had a problem, except for one-time when somebody took advantage of a bug -- hence the upgrade patch.

    I have a similar problem for 3-4 days now: ALL my phpBBforums (several ones, including at cpanelthemes.com) will not accept login unless I check the &autologin next time&. This is true for MacIE. Other Mac browsers can not login at all. Windows users can login without any problems.

    This happened suddenly, I don't know what the reason is.

    I upgraded PHP version on ours and also enabled phpsuex support. So I have clicked defaults and tried rebuilding it... See if it works now...

    If you have access to phpMyAdmin, try running the following query on the database:

    Code:
    TRUNCATE phpbb_sessions;
    If you need help with running queries in phpMyAdmin, here is a great tutorial on it:

    Backup your database before performing this fix.

    This is a syntax error. Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ession_admin and change it to session_admin.

    You also need to run this code in phpMyAdmin:
    Code:
    ALTER TABLE `mos_session` ADD COLUMN `session_admin` tinyint(2) DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL
