I have a somewhat odd problem logging on to Confluence. If access Confluence using the IP (https://<ipaddress>:8443) it works. If I use the FQDN of the server (https://my.server.biz:8443) the website returns to the Login page instead of just logging in to the start page. Everytime it does this, it seems to be generating a new jsessionid. This only happens with Internet Explorer. Firefox and Chrome work fine. Where do I have to tweek IE to stop to get this to work?
If you are using proxy server between IE and Confluence, try without it.
Try enabling/disabling "Compatibility view" in IE for particular URL.
Also - try testing from different computer.
Not sure if this helps, but you may want to try and delete the browser cookies (ctrl + shift + delete).
I've noticed this happening on all browsers and at least Confluence, Jira and FishEye. Every time this happens, I delete the cookies for that specific domain and all goes back to normal.
This is still not working. :-( I went so far as to setup a new Virtuel Win7 Machine and I still got the login loop. That tells me the problem must be in Confluence, since the Browser was completely new, without any cookies at all. I can't fathom what could be so different between IE and Firefox and Chrome. The Base URL doesn't effect this either. Perhaps there are other tweeks in Confluence, but I can't seem to find the right one.
