I'm not sure if this is a repeatable problem, but it's happened twice to me. I can't login to my wikidot site as any user (super-admin, admin, or "regular"). What broke things (I think) was that I renamed my server and updated all of my config files with the new server name. The site still loads fine, but everytime I try to log in, I get this message:
You have been inactive quite a long while trying to log in and your session data have expired.
Please try to click 'log in' once again.
I have tried clearing my browser's cache, stopping and starting apache and postgresql, and rebooting the server. Nothing seems to work.
The first time it happens was after I got my initial install working. Trying to log in as the super-admin was giving me the same issue. With all of the other problems I was having at that time trying to get the site working, I can't remember what I did that finally allowed me to log in.
Is there some table I can clear out in the postgresql database to jumpstart things?
I plan on doing a clean install from scratch again this weekend to see if I can document the complete process of getting a local, private wikidot server up and running. I'll know then if this login issue is repeatable.
Thanks to everyone for your help. In spite of some issues, this has been a great learning experience!
