XF 1.4 Being logged out of Admin CP on any and every action


New member
Hi all,

I`ve read a few threads ref this problem, but could not find anything that helps me.
Basically, I`m being logged out on any action while in Admin CP.

This happens to two different admin users on 2 different PC's (same network though).
If I log in from home rather than work, keeps happening the same.

Anybody has any idea what is this caused by? i`m having real difficulties because of this, It took me 10 minutes and about 40 tries to change a password of one user...


Edit: I`ve logged in on the forum, clicked create thread, written it up, and when I clicked post, it asked me TO LOG IN, so it is happening here, as well.

Thanks for the reply.
Yes I meant on this forum as well.
I don't see anything wrong with the connection whatsoever, cache / cookies have been cleared, etc.

It would seem to imply that your IP is changing unexpectedly (or cookies are being cleared in your browser). You could check a page like this to see if your IP changes over a short (minutes) period of time: https://www.whatismyip.com/

Hi guys,

Thank you all from the help.
Managed to find what was causing the issue. We have 2 internet connections with a load balancing set up on them. basically we were hoping IP's all the time - hence the logged out issue.

Thank you all for contributing, and shout out to @AndyB who has helped a lot via PM's (top man, Andy!)
