Full Version: Authorization code mismatch
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
When I try to login I get this error:

[font="Open Sans", sans-serif]Authorization code mismatch. Are you accessing this function correctly? Please go back and try again.[/font]

The only thing I've changed is the location of the forum, it used to be at the URL below:

https://forumformentalhealthissues.com/mybb

but I moved it to:

https://forumformentalhealthissues.com



Thank you in advance for any support Smile

Hello,

Thank you for your reply. I forgot to mention I could still access the admin area, but I have carried out the instructions listed above and it still comes up with that error.

If I move the forum back to https://forumformentalhealthissues.com/mybb then I can log back in. But i'd obviously like the forum to be here: https://forumformentalhealthissues.com.

Thanks again
We have done that but now we cannot edit anything.
If your forum is using TLS (which, yours is), you should also enable the Secure Cookie flag within your admin control panel, this is another cause of the authorization code mismatch error (though certainly not the only one).

I'll give that a go now!

Think that may have fixed it, its weird as I could edit the settings.php file to turn the secure cookie on then log into admin and it would then turn it off. I've managed to sort it all out now, thank you very much for you help!
changes to settings.php file are for temporary.
actual changes should be done at forum admin panel.
Thanks it is sorted now Smile
