I've been having various issues, some of which may relate to trying to run under IIS (See http://www.pligg.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4501
I have gotten to the point where MySQL and PHP are running, but the login is not working. I am able to log in with god/12345 (will get a login error if I enter a bad password), but the system "forgets" I'm logged in. That is, I don't see any area fields, and if I click Submit a new Story, same thing happens.
If I create a new user, it seems to work - but clicking submit returns the login screen (and it doesn't seem to see I'm logged in).
Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm stuck running this under IIS. I saw some other posts about modding the login files, but that really blew it out of the water - I assume because the changes were off a older version of Pligg.
