On My New site, hounsell.biz, i was setting up a phpBB forum on my site in a /forum/ directory, but i appear to be having cookie issues. visitors can only log into the forum a very small percentage of the time, and the registration doesn't work. I think it is down to the cookie settings, which don't seem to be right. the domain box is blank and the second box below, has a small bit of random text. i cant give any more details as i cant access it right now.

phpBB trouble? Step aside, I know all forum software, front and back. The domain box can be empty, and the box below can be just about anything, although the default "phpbb2mysql" is usually alright, but if you want to change it, make it simple, like "hounsell". Also watch the session time box, make sure it's reasonable. I'm not entirely sure what else could be going on, check your web server settings, confirm anything that could hurt cookies is changed or disabled. If all that is okay, it must be a client side problem, or something I don't know of. Also make sure your user's settings are right.

**EDIT** - Eck. You both got here before me, and the settings are okay. I still think you should check the server and your client's settings, those may cause a problem.

Also get everyone on your site to clear the cookie for your site. This will stop problems later on (this is why I put the message on the BA login page)
