I just had a very disturbing behavior of the panel: out of the blue i could not log in anymore. With none of my users. But on another domain/server with an older state of the website it worked without problems. It worked for weeks on the new domain without any problems.
I also use the API to grab data. I’m not sure if it was a coincidence, but: After removing all accounts on the FTP and activating panel.install to create a fresh user, I got back into the panel. However, shortly after I made an API query with basicAuth, I wasn’t able to get into the panel again, even with the new user.
And then, 10 minutes later, without doing anything again, I got back in. Which is good but also bad, because I am afraid this will happen again.
When I was not able to login to the panel I also wasn’t able to connect with basicAuth to the API.
Yesterday, for the first time, I had created an editor role for one of the users. But after that everything still worked, even this morning.
What could be the reason for the spontaneous not being able to log in?
Everything was working, also the request. But as soon a did another second request in my API I got “blocked” and from then on was not able to request something with the user credentials and I was not able to login anymore in the panel.
Not sure, but could be… I am working with VVVV, a C# environment running and compiling code in realtime. Maybe a error occurs which lets my app hold on a certain state, where the request is done multiple times per second. Which then causes the bug. Will investigate the next time, when it happens.
Question is for me then: Is there any other fix then deleting and creating all users again?
