Hi Dennis,


The reason for your url being wrong is because of your apache config file not being configured correctly…


Check out http://dev.wifidog.org/wiki/doc/install/debian/auth-server


Dog_cookie should goto the tmp directory on the auth server (cat /tmp/dog_cookie.txt), if not you could check your permissions on the folder.


Hope that helps,

Greetings Folks;

I am new here.  Spent 14 or 15 hours today getting iptables to work (sort of) on Debian Lenny.

Installed WiFiDog.  Trying to install WiFiDog Auth.  After I figured out that the install URL (maybe) needs to be http://<a <http://%3ca>  lan IP>/wifidog-auth/wifidog/install.php rather than the instructed http://<a <http://%3ca>  lan IP>/install.php, as someone was trying to figure out a few months ago, I find that there is no dog_cookie.txt.

Have I missed something between svn checkout https://dev.wifidog.org/svn/trunk/wifidog-auth , which I ran in /var/www, and opening install.php in a browser?

I noticed the /tmp/.htaccess file but renaming it did not make the login dialogue go away.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

Oh THAT /tmp/cookie.txt!  Any chance or making it a little more apparent - 'specially given the tmp directory in WiFiDog's web root??!  Some of us do not read PHP so well.

Thanks anyway.

Best regards,
