RT requires login with every action

Morning

I have a fresh RT 3.6.3 installation on a Gentoo system.

I can login as root, but if I try any link(Eg New Ticket or
Configuration) it gives me the login screen again. If I login again it
will show the requested page.
This continues indefinitely. I am using FireFox 2.0 which have cookies
etc enabled, other sites don’t complain for malfunction.

An odd thing I noticed in the log file was this line which occurs every
time I try the above. It might be unrelated to my problem or caused by
the my timezone( Set($Timezone , ‘Africa/Johannesburg’); ) setting.

[Wed Jan 10 06:15:53 2007] [debug]: RT::Date used date::parse to make
1970-01-01 -7200 (//var/www/rt.cs.up.ac.za/rt-3.6.3/lib/RT/Date.pm:211)

Thank you in advance.

PS I have seem people with similar issues but with no solutions.

I had the same problem … the following fixed it for me:

I found several mentions, suggestions, etc regarding using RT over HTTPS and
how to configure RT-Mailgate but I could not inbound emails into the queue.

I’ve receiving these errors:
Running /var/spool/mqueue/l09MMkDP026633 (sequence 2 of 7)

“|/etc/smrsh/rt-mailgate --queue general --action correspond --url
https://www.domain.com/rt/”… Deferred: prog mailer (/usr/sbin/smrsh)
exited with EX_TEMPFAIL

I’ve found a temporary (or maybe permanent) workaround by creating a
VirtualHost for “localhost” that is just HTTP. and using “–url
http://localhost/rt/” in my alias file.

I just started testing but haven’t seen anything horribly wrong yet. Just
curious if anyone else got this to work differently?

I’m using https without any problems:

cat /var/qmail/alias/.qmail-support

|/opt/rt3/bin/rt-mailgate --queue support --action correspond --url
https://customerdomain.net/rt

I’m running RT on the same host as the email server in this case, which could
make a difference.

This was my solution (and subsequent fix) when I experienced this problem.

We have https running via redirect from port 80 to 443. We have one
virtualhost running which handles everything. If I were at work I’d
post that part of our config. Sadly, I’m not

Everything is on one server for me. I’ll try your suggestions and let
everyone know.>On Wed, 10 Jan 2007, Mat W wrote:
