Profile/Cache problem

Postby aosistech » Thu Mar 15, 2007 4:24 am


I have had 3 complaints about a specific problem now, and I was hoping that someone here have had some experience with this.

In ojs, person A logs in with username/password. This happen succesfully, and the sidebar section says "You are logged in as PersonA".

Then this person goes to USER HOME.
Under one of the journals, he/she would then click one of the roles. In a recent case, she clicked "Reviewer". This is where it starts.

Suddenly the sidebar says "You are logged in as SomeOtherPerson" and the wrong content is displayed, until a hard refresh is done.

I have heard three complaints that this happens, that people change from one logged in user to another by just clicking on Editor or Reviewer or whatever the case may be.

Can someone please shed some light here?

Hi Marlon,

I've never heard of this sort of thing happening before -- I expect it's an upstream proxy that is incorrectly caching data. Do you have a non-standard cache or proxy configuration on your server, or do you know of one upstream? If possible, could you try disabling it?

Also, have you modified OJS in a way that might change its caching behavior with remote web browsers?
