XF 1.3 AdminCP always logged out

Adam Howard

I've been having a bit of an issue with AdminCP. I'm continuously and randomly logged out. I had a hard time even installing an add-on, because I kept getting logged out during the rebuild.

If anyone knows away to force remaining logged in, I'd love to know it.

Few things...

1) Not suing cloudflare or any proxy
2) Not currently cache sessions (though would very much like to do so)
3) IP address is the same when viewing info.php

Thoughts on what else could cause this?

This is what is currently in my config.php

PHP:
<?php
// Requirements
$config['db']['host'] = 'localhost';
$config['db']['port'] = '3306';
$config['db']['username'] = 'user-name';
$config['db']['password'] = 'password';
$config['db']['dbname'] = 'data-base-name';
$config['superAdmins'] = 'X,X,X';
// Cookieless domain + CDN
$config['javaScriptUrl'] = 'http://cdn.sociallyuncensored.com/js';
$config['externalDataUrl'] = 'http://cdn.sociallyuncensored.com/data';
// System Cache
$config['cache']['enabled'] = true;
$config['cache']['frontend'] = 'Core';
$config['cache']['frontendOptions']['cache_id_prefix'] = 'su_';
// Session Cache
// $config['cache']['cacheSessions'] = true;
// Backend Cache
$config['cache']['backend'] = 'xcache';
//
// Disable ALL add-ons
// $config['enableListeners'] = false;
// Enable debug mode
// $config['debug'] = 1;
// Display ALL errors (if any)
// ini_set('display_errors', true);

The only time I've seen this is when the IP has been changing (dramatically). I guess it could also happen if the session was terminated for some reason, but why that would happen is a question that I can't answer.

Stupid question, but does it happen if all addons are disabled?

Really? I was under the impression you could use both. Just like how you could use APC with something else (memcache) as they each did something differently.

I guess I would pick ZendOpcache if I knew how to get that working in my config.php

What are you wanting to use it for? Just the opcode caching?

You don't need to do anything in that case, zendopcache works without any config required in your config.php file for XenForo.
So what can I put in my config.php to cache both the front end, backend, and session cache? Was looking to xcache for that.

In that case, disable zendopcache, and use xcache, as that can do both.
@MattW there tons of post here where people use both... I would like them divided. One simply dedicated only to opcode caching and one for caching the front, back, and session.

Recall that is what was done with APC and whatever cache people had picked (xcache or memcache). So why has this changed?

It hasn't. I've not seen anyone use Xcache with ZendOpcache.

Yes, people (including myself), have used Xcache for opcaching, and memcached for the sessions (I currently use ZendOpcache with Memcached myself), or zendopcache and APCu on PHP5.5, but I've not seen anyone use the combination you are suggesting you want to try.

EDIT:

Common setups

APC (opcache and session)
Xcache (opcache and session)
ZendOpcache + Memcached
ZendOpcache + APCu

So you can mix and match (I knew this). But I have never been told you cannot use xcache with anything else.

ZendOpcache = for opcode
xcache = for backend, front end, and sessions.

This is what I wanted to use. And it's been working fine. It's only recently that I've been having problems keeping logged into AdminCP.

So I'm wondering what is the difference between XenForo's forum side vs AdminCP when it comes to login. Because I have no issue staying logged into the forum, only the admincp.

The only difference I can think of is I have admin.php password protected using htpasswd

Are you sure it's been working? You opcache.ini file is empty, so there is nothing actually configured in it, apart from enabling the extension.
Code:
; configuration for php ZendOpcache module
; priority=05
zend_extension=opcache.so
There is no memory allocated to it, so it's not going to be storing anything.

That being the case, it might be something as simple as you are running out of space in the cache, and need to increase it in the xcache.ini file.
Code:
cat 20-xcache.ini | grep size
; to disable: xcache.size=0
; to enable : xcache.size=64M etc (any size > 0) and your system mmap allows
xcache.size  =               60M
xcache.var_size  =            4M

Huh... Well now I'm confused. I was told (read) countless times that you did not need to configure ZendOpcache and that enabling it was good enough (quick search shows that advice over and over). ..... I'm only good as the information I have. lol :p

Any suggested values for the zend?

You don't need to configure it for XenForo, but you DO need to configure it to work with PHP itself.

This is mine on my debian box with the same RAM as yours.
Code:
; configuration for php ZendOpcache module
; priority=05
zend_extension=opcache.so
opcache.enable=1
opcache.memory_consumption=512
opcache.interned_strings_buffer=8
opcache.max_wasted_percentage=5
opcache.max_accelerated_files=8000
opcache.revalidate_freq=60
opcache.fast_shutdown=1
opcache.enable_cli=0
opcache.save_comments=1
opcache.enable_file_override=1
opcache.validate_timestamps=1

Well good news is my xcache.ini is not empty at all. :p

This is what is there
PHP:

However, you guessed right about the opcache.ini being virtually empty
