Hi,

For some reason I'm not able to login to the webfaction control panel on my laptop. It works on every other computer other than mine. I've tried clearing the cache, using a different browser, restarting..all the obvious troubleshooting stuff. I was wondering if there is something else I could do to make it work. On entering the password it just takes me back to the login page without any error message.

Thanks.

Does this happen with a particular browser?

Are you suing some intermediate proxy when accessing it through the laptop?

Nope, all browsers (or atleast chrome and IE..)

Not using any proxy.

Can you try with Firefox?

Firefox doesn't work for some reason on my comp. I'll try switching to Ubuntu and get back to you.

Is the system clock set to the current time and date? SSL will fail if the system date/time is not correct, and this can sometimes cause the control panel to fail log in. If you reset the password can you log in with the reset link that is sent to you?
