yeah it has to be something to do with that, I ran two mods to see if I can fix it which were:
starfoxtj's Admin Toolkit & the Auto Cookies MOD
made no difference.

I'm wondering if it is something to do with DH's MySql version + using the latest phpbb version and them not been compatible?
I decided to upgrade as I moved, I was using 2.0.17 but now upgraded to the latest version 2.0.21 & I tossed out all the old code which was a bit of a mess with too many mods etc anyway and started fresh using the database. I have been planning to add the design back how it was though but I haven't done anything until I sort the login issue out.
I exported the database & all data except for "phpbb_users_cache" & "phpbb_search_wordmatch" data and just used the structure for them tables.
The last host was windows in case you need to know that and it can help.
Here is a user account I made for DH's so you can login as a member... I will close that account later once we have worked this out - if we do!
There are no other issues with the move & upgrade besides this login problem.
thanks for offering to help, it is much appreciated
