this request was aborted because it appears to be forged

Recommended Posts

Has anyone a solution for this problem using Amazon web services?  I have an EC2 that is giving me trouble with this error.  I have given permissions to assets and config.php file but the problem persists.  Thanks for any help here.

Thanks Alanfluff for Solved with 777 on the sessions folder and all contents.  This solved our login issue.

I just came across with this topic and wanted to share my experience.

The problem with permissions is simple:

The Apache user (see: PHP) has no permission on files we upload with our FTP user and the same goes the other way around too. 

On shared hosting the solution for us was to change PHP to run as fastCGI instead of as Apache module.

This way you can upload files via FTP, leave permissions as the recommended 755 and 644 and php will be able to happily write those files/folders.

Also, you can edit/delete files and folders via FTP even though they were created by PHP.

On my VPS running Webmin I just make sure that I upload files with the virtual host user and not with the root user.

I hope it helps to sort the cause of the problem and not just treating the symptom.

I just ran into this issue, and it was not a permissions problem.

This was a site I have checked into source-control (Git) and the problem was, some folders are exempt from source control, namely "cache", "logs" and "sessions" in the "assets" folder.

Apparently, PW will silently fail when these folders don't exist and can't be written to.

Shouldn't it should throw an exemption on failure to write to any of these folders?

The error message given currently is misleading more than helpful.

I have the same problem with the current dev version 2.5.26 and was not able to login. I've noticed that it was the version of PHP 5.6. With PHP version 5.5 it works.

I'm running a vagrant box with nginx and varnish and got this same problem. All folder on 777.

The problem was that in the Varnish `default.vlc` I was disabling cookies from the admin url (/processwire). I commented the line and restarted the service and it worked. :)

This issue was happening to me all of a sudden. Happened just after uploading a 3MB photo via the admin.  Tried messing with permissions and no help. Tried deleting the photo via FTP and suddenly was able to login again. Uploaded another photo and got the "appears to be forged" warning. Then it occurred to me that possibly I had maxed out my allocated storage. This was the case.  I increased my space on my hosting account and everything is good again.

I just had this issue, the problem was caused by a full hard drive. 

I had my hard drive full and clearing the servers /temp folder solved the issue.

I'm having this issue after moving to production.

I'm hosting on a Linux web app on Azure.

All permissions are set as rwxrwxrwx for all folder and files in the webroot.

I have plenty of free space.

I tried deleting the site/assets/sessions directory...a new one gets created properly automatically upon next sign in attempt.

Session files are being created in the site/assets/sessions directory, so I know that processwire is able to access that.

 

What else could be the issue if it's not permissions or storage space?

@Pixrael I'm not very experienced with linux but I thought that if PW is creating new files in site/assets/sessions directory, it has permissions to write there? Or is the php session path a different thing than the PW session path?

I changed my .htaccess file to successfully get the session.save_path to change to a local directory that I am sure I have full ownership permissions on:

I restarted the site, cleared all cookies, and still get the error. Any ideas?

I tried the methods in that stackoverflow question and they did not work. As you can see in my posted screenshot, I was able to get phpinfo() to recognize a different save_path by using .htaccess. However that did not keep the "appears to be forged" error from showing up when logging in.

 

The app is using the docker configuration based on standard php apache image as seen in this repo:

https://github.com/Azure-App-Service/php/tree/master/7.2.5-apache

 

Please if anyone has any other ideas of what can be keeping me from logging in, this is preventing us from bringing our ready website to production. Thanks!

In site/config.php if I set:

$config->protectCSRF = false;

Then 3 different things happen:

A wires_challenge cookie is now showing up in my browser (wasn't there before.)

The error "appears to be forged" no longer shows up.

?login=1 is added to the url string

Still does not login 😞

Installed fresh processwire from scratch on identical hosting setup.

When going through installer, everything checks out as normal, except on the final review page after install, these errors appear:

 

image.thumb.png.f77987a9a642d82ee7fdb38658e78e44.png

 

I can still continue on to login page, but original error is still present and prevents login.

Take a look at the raw http response body in your browser's developer console. My guess is that some kind of error/warning output from PHP (perhaps a configuration conflict in php.ini or a PHP version issue) performs some early output and thus prevents sessions and login from working. But the raw response should contain some kind of hint about it.

Had this issue again recently using ProcessWire 3.0.62 on shared hosting. I managed to fixed the issue with 777 on both templates and assets folders (as didnt help just on assets for some reason..?) but I'll need to go in a take a look around the hosting as this is massively not good 😞 Will report back.

Did you ever work this one out?
I'm trying to run Processwire on Azure App Service (Linux), file permissions are set correct, and I have set the PHP session path.

I get the same errors on installation, then I can't looking due to the "ProcessWire: ProcessLogin: This request was aborted because it appears to be forged." error.

Hi,

How can I identify the files and folders that I need to change the permissions from this?
And what might be the permissions to change to?

Thank you

      Hey folks,
      Iam working on a new Admin Theme, based on AdminThemeReno, which I would like to release for the public soon.
      Now I want to style the login page to fit the look and feel of the backend.

      After some research, I found out that I have to set the "$config->defaultAdminTheme = 'AdminThemeName' " inside my site config.php file to load all the styles from my admin theme on the login page instead of the default ones.
      Is it possible to set this via api from my Admin Theme settings, without the need of editing the config file?

      Hi. I'm currently stuck at the login page in my project. Once I enter my admin username and my password and press login, nothing happens. The page just reloads. However, the URL changes from http://myipaddress/processwire to http://myipaddress/processwire/?login=1. I've checked all of my server settings, and to my knowledge, all seems to be fine there. I don't know where to go from here.. Thanks in advance!

      I have a client who is reporting that in the last couple of days they can no longer login to their site with their normal browser (Chrome). Using another browser or an incognito window works.
      I've tried logging into the site using the same login details in my usual browser (Firefox) and have had no problems.
      The site is a membership site and today other members are reporting the same problem.
      The site is running 3.0.148 and has the session handler DB and login throttle modules installed. It was recently upgraded to 3.x from 2.x. But no changes have been made to the site between the time when they were able to login OK and when the problem started happening.

      The Minimal Site works fine, but if I try to login as admin, I have no idea what the credentials are.
      I did not do the "install" process myself. The OVA came with everything set up, but there's no mention of the PW admin credentials being set to some initial value.
      Wondering if anyone else has tried the Bitnami OVA and if there's a simple answer.

      Hi, I need to provide a quite complex user registration form: description, subdescription, drop-down lists etc. 
      Through this registration, users will be able to access and comment.
      If someone responds to their comments, I would like a NOTIFICATION to appear when accessing their panel.
      My social interaction project is just that, it seems simple, I don't need more.
      Now I am undecided whether to use buddypress, elgg, or a native processwire system.
      What do you recommend? 
      If you recommend processwire, which modules should I install?
      Do they work or is processwire too immature for that?
