This issue is only on Chrome. I got redirected to the login page after login. I tried the following:

1. I put this

<?php echo $this->getBlockHtml('formkey'); ?>

after the <form>

2. from system->configuration->web I put the Cookie Lifetime to 9600 or 96000 or 0 the Cookie Path and Cookie Domain i left it empty and i set the Use HTTP Only to yes or no , but the thing is whatever combination settings I do i still got redirected to the login page.

3. I checked the logs file, nothing relevant. I cleared the cache etc

4. I put this code:

if (!($formKey = $this->getRequest()->getParam('form_key', null)) || $formKey != Mage::getSingleton('core/session')->getFormKey()) {
    $this->getRequest()->setParams(array('form_key' =>Mage::getSingleton('core/session')->getFormKey()));

in my AccountController.php in the loginPostAction function, but it changed nothing.

After I clear my browser cache on chrome it works , but i logout and login in again i am redirected to login page. Any idea ??

[update] Im storing the session in db : <session_save>db</session_save>

  • I think multiple cookie domain are creating. Check the cookie domain from browser. Jan 27, 2017 at 11:25
  • theoretically i shouldn't do any settings to my browser, I cannot tell to my customers to go to chrome ->settings -> do that or other things :) Thx for the understanding Jan 27, 2017 at 11:27
  • I am just asking to check to you not customer and accordingly you can resolve it. Jan 27, 2017 at 11:31
  • I have 2 cookies from google analytics like mywebsite.de and 3 others on www.mywebsite.de (frontend, frontend_cid and Local_storage) Jan 27, 2017 at 11:37
