    I installed a fresh version LiteSpeed/2.1.14 Standard.

    configured a listener with ssl
    configured a virtual host
    linked the host to the listener
    copied the files to the document root
    set up mysql

    the first page you see is a login page
    when you enter valid user/pass,
    it athenticates ok with the database, reads user privileges, stores them into the $_SESSION array.
    then i call header:location: other page
    but the next page says the user has no rights

    a session cockie is created in /tmp with all correct values, AND another with empry session.
    this script is working fine in several other servers, so I asume it's a issue with the
    /opt/lsws/fcgi-bin/lsphp
    or /opt/lsws/conf/php.ini
    file

    I have been reading PHP ' online manual's coments and someone mentions that i have to use session_write_close or something but didnt work

    Looking at the php in server admin, a noticed that the access method has changed from fast cgi to lsapi, could this be my problem?
    I tried creating another handler with fastcgi, but the server just reponds with 503 server busy.

    I hope you can help me.

    1) You are getting the 503 error because you are attempting to use a FCGI handler with a the stock php binary that is compiled for LSAPI only.

    2) Do a "echo phpinfo();" at the top of your authentication php page to see what cookies are actually received by php.

    3) Seek the session class/function you are using to see if there is a SSL bit toggle.

    4) Try settings output_buffering = 8192 in /opt/lsws/conf/php.ini. See if this helps.

    The best way to check is to to make sure cookies are sent/received properly. Have one script set a cookie and the same or another to receive/echo it.

    What it looks like if that the end user's browser is not receiving/storing the cookies.

    I have formatted this server 3 times, and this is the first time i got this behavior. Previous versions of lsws worked fine.
    I will try whit an older version to see what happens.
