the config settings are stored in phpgw_config, but switching and
restoring them may or may not actualy fix this.

something else that may or may not help, is a patch that can be found
in sysmailadmin
that enabled support for more than one auth source.  I think the patch
may be coded to check the "primary" and them mail/imap, but it should
not be hard to modify.

as an aside, sysmailadmin can also be modified to manage ldap accounts
as well, allowing the phpgw user interface to autmaticaly keep it all
in sync

Could you elaborate on the problems that you overheard?  About the
only thing I'm able to come up with on Google ("Apache 2.2.2 PHP
problems") is this:

Since I'm not using Windows and I'm using PHP 5.1.4, I feel safe.

I recall seeing it since day one, but it didn't seem to be causing any
problems, so I ignored it.

I have been doing a lot of Apache configuration, so I have restarted
apache (gracefully) numerous times since I made my post.

So what you're saying is that I should consider using a temp space
with a much more liberal quota, and keep an eye on it? ;-)

PostgreSQL 8.1.4.

Thanks for helping with those 2 issues.  I'm still at a total loss as
to why my users can no longer login, however.

After setting error_reporting to E_ALL, the following is syslog'ed 14
times before and 10 times after the mcrypt error when attempting to

PHP Notice:  Undefined variable: attachment in 
on line 120

Nothing else new turns up.  Disabling mcrypt doesn't help.  Nor does
enabling DB-backed sessions (after doing so, the phpgw_sessions table
stays mysteriously empty, BTW).

I currently have phpgw authenticating against our LDAP server, with
user accounts stored in SQL (I have been unable to get phpgw to modify
LDAP so far).

I initially created an administrative account, then logged in with my
LDAP account (thus creating the necessary stuff in the SQL backend),
logged in as the administrator, and added my LDAP user to the
administrative group with access to the Admin module.  I've since used
my own account to administer phpgw, but I am also affected by the
login problem.

I cannot login to the old administrative account without switching to
SQL authentication and re-creating the administrative account, thus
deleting all my users from the SQL store.  Doing so completely fixes
the problem, but we lose all of our configuration settings.  How can I
save them?
