    Every time I want to submit my edit the wiki, I get this error:
    When I log in, it brings me to the 'successful logged in' page. But when I go to another place, I'm logged out again??

    I already tried clearing the cache and Navigation history, but no success

    Its for Both Firefox 3.5.2 and IE 7

    continued in next post V

    Oh, I had this problem too, but it said "disconnect and retry", so I thought I will try later, but didn't yet.

    I saw an url error too few days ago (some links using wiki/pagename and wiki?title=pagename). but it get corrected the next day. Maybe it was related to that correction.

    Its STILL broken

    If they can't or don't want to fix it, at least tell us why!

    if it helps admins, heres the mediawiki explaination:

    Assuming you get this error even when you do have a seemingly valid logon session:

    Check if /var/lib/php5 is writable and not readable for user and world ( # chmod 733 /var/lib/php5 )
    Check to see if your session.save_path value in php.ini is valid and writable to the webserver - PHP configuration.
    Check to see if there is enough disk space.

    After making changes restart Apache:

    /etc/init.d/httpd restart[/p]

    I've been trying to contact an admin for a while.

    The registration/edit confirmation thing doesn't work. It'll say you have the wrong answer even though it's correct.

    It's happening to me too. The MediaWiki says the problem is with some configuration after the update.
    I hope this helps somehow, and also hope I'm not breaking the laws...

    I fixed it, but you need to log out & log in again for it to work.
