Panel keeps logging me out


#21

Perfect @bastianallgeier that works, just tested it.

I use it like this

if (c::get("debug") == true) {
    s::$fingerprint = function() {
        return "random fingerprint";
    };
}

#22

I’m also having this problem right now and it’s really frustrating :disappointed: Where would I put that snippet you mentioned? Maybe that will fix it.


#23

You can put it inside the site/config/config.php file. However please adapt it to contain some kind of dynamic information. Just copying it as is makes your site insecure as every user will have the same fingerprint.


#24

like @lukasbestle suggested maybe something like this…

if (c::get("debug") == true) {
    s::$fingerprint = function() {
        return sha1(
            kirby()->roots()->index().
            visitor::ip()
        );
    };
}

edited: not recommended was without the visitor::ip(). now it should be fine. :smile_cat:


#25

No, that’s not recommended. The fingerprint should always include some information about the visitor. The default one contains the user agent and the IP address.


#26

i see. i removed the user part and added visitor:ip().


#27

Thanks for the suggestion, @bnomei and @lukasbestle! But now I’m getting a fatal error:

Access to undeclared static property: S::$fingerprint

Do I have to use the develop branch or could it be something else?

Update

Now I feel foolish. I was so sure that I was using the latest version of Kirby but I was still on 2.3.*. Maybe that fixes everything! Thanks though and I’m really sorry for your trouble :wink:


#28

Unfortunately I’m still getting kicked out. I’ve even tested it with only returning “foo” and it still doesn’t work. What could be another reason for that?


#29

Sorry to bother you again, but I’m still getting kicked out of the panel frequently. Any more ideas on how to fix that?


#30

Do you have one or more installations on the same domain or localhost? I’m often logged out when I’m switching between two (or more) installations or between a beta version and a live version on the same domain. In that case it might be a collision between the sessions, it’s my guess.

If it’s not that, make sure that debug is true if you use the snippet above. On localhost I never use IP as fingerprint, I always use like hello. But on a live server you should probably be more careful.


#31

Thanks for the reply, @jenstornell. I have only one Kirby installation on that domain. I’ve also tested the snippet with just “foo” and without the debug if clause, still no luck :frowning: I’ve run out of ideas by now.

I’m on 2.3.2. was there any solution to this. I’ve been getting this for a while but have just been tolerating it.


#33

@tradedemon Setting the session fingerprint is not available on 2.3.2, but on 2.4 only.


#34

Ok sorry so that means the problem shouldn’t exist for me ? or that I can’t resolve it.

It doesn’t seem to happen on our development server only on my vagrant development setup.

Thanks


#35

No, the fact that you are kicked out of a session can have several reasons.

The fingerprint may or may not be a solution; in another thread re a Mediatemple hosting plan, setting a different /tmp folder via the php.ini solved the issue.

I’m not familiar with Vagrant, therefore I can’t really help you with this issue.

If you want to try the fingerprint solution, you would have to update to Kirby 2.4. But as I said, it may not help depending on the cause of the problem.


#36

could be a reson as well… why do php sessions end after 30 min on ubuntu no matter php ini setting? because of disabled garbage collection and a cron job. read more about it here:


#37

That’s an interesting read.
