I just set up 1.5 on my local computer as a subfolder of my website - http://localhost/blog
After logging in, I am just redirected back to the default.aspx page with no visible change. If I enter an incorrect login, I do get an error message - Your login attempt was not successful. Please try again.
I've read through the previous posts and several others have had this problem, but none of the fixes seem to be working for me.
I checked the cookies and I do have .AUXBLOGENGINE but not .BLOGENGINEROLES
I added the path /blog to the forms and roleManager elements:
<forms timeout="129600" name=".AUXBLOGENGINE" protection="All" slidingExpiration="true" loginUrl="~/login.aspx" cookieless="UseCookies" path="/blog"/>
<roleManager defaultProvider="XmlRoleProvider" enabled="true" cacheRolesInCookie="true" cookieName=".BLOGENGINEROLES" cookiePath="/blog">
Anyone have any ideas of what else I can try? I am wondering if something in my root web.config is interfering. I added <clear/> right after the <providers> element to remove any existing items because I was getting an error referencing
a provider from my root web.config, but that's didn't help.
