I'm suffering from a Logon problem, every so often, I get:

Code: [Select]
Not Acceptable
An appropriate representation of the requested resource /smf/index.php could
not be found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an
ErrorDocument to handle the request

Seems best cured by deleting my cookie and logging on but sometimes it just takes a long wait.

This seem to be on the increase?

No. I note that I type the password correctly each time.

One option would be to clear the browser's cache, off-line content, delete existing cookies, then log-in again to start fresh.

Yep - did all that. Several times, in fact. No joy :(

The only difference I can see from what I'm doing is that I always log in with my username and password, rather than email address and password.  I wonder if that makes a difference?
I always log in with my username and password, and still am having problems. Summat's been tweaked somewhere, I reckon.
Sorry Theo :(

If it's any help, the forum seems to be more stable when I use Firefox rather than Safari.

I've been having that same problem with logging in - the same on about 4 different computers, all of which have my username and password saved correctly  :-\ It generally works second time  ???

It may be I'll have to re-install the forum software.  I did an upgrade a couple of months ago which failed the first time, bt succeeded the second, something may have been broken in the process.

What seems to work for me is to ignore the Logon on the Forum Home Page, open any sub=-page and then go back to the home page and it then says Hello Lester!

Hope this helps

Lester's solution is the same as mine. I have now bookmarked the forum's general discussion sub-page (which recognises me) so that whenever I want to use the site I can bypass the home-page.

OK I may have found the cause of this problem and fixed it by changing some server settings.

Would all those having problems with logging in and viewing recent posts please post here if things are still the same, or are better.

Happy New Year.

Hmmm.......this time it did work for me. Didn't log out/in or anything, just went elsewhere for a bit. Returned, clicked the "Show unread posts" button, and up came two. Hopefully it's working for me again.

The Forum home-page still thinks I'm a guest. I tried logging in on that page, (which I did successfully) then closed the window, then went back in to see if that had fixed it, but it greeted me as a guest again. I'll just carry on bypassing the home-page.

Is this just a replacement for the torches that haunted us on the old board?   :P
