Hi Boone. After giving the suggested login (username 'cdev' and password 'community') I'm taken to the "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Test Page" (screenshot attached). When I then navigate to the beta version ( I'm denied access (screenshot attached). Thanks for your help!

Thanks, Erin. Can I ask you to clear your browser cache - or try a different browser - and try again?

If you're still having the problem, please take screenshots that include the page URL, or let me know what the exact URLs are that correspond to each screenshot.

I am having the exact same symptoms as Erin is having.

#4 Updated by Boone Gorges about 4 years ago

Access should be restored. There was a bug, which I'll detail later. Let's leave this ticket open until I have a few moments to write it up.

The problem came from, which introduced a bit of syntax not compatible with cdev/commons version of PHP. Dan, I'm copying you as an FYI.

Fixed in

Updating this after mentioning it on todays dev call. I have the same issue that Erin posted where I get the Red Hat page but only in certain circumstances. I looked into a bit further and don't know why it's happening but here are the facts:

  • works in Firefox
  • works in Incognito mode in Chrome
  • doesn't work in normal Chrome mode Version 45.0.2454.85 (64-bit)

I went in and removed cookies and local storage for and did a hard refresh and restarted the browser but still had the issue. It may be something related to one of my extensions as well I might try disabling those later and see if that changes anything.

  • Status changed from Resolved to Testing Required
  • Assignee changed from Boone Gorges to Chris Stein

Changing this to testing required just to help remind me to see if I can figure out what about my Chrome setup is the issue (if it's coming from the client side).

Chris, have you had a chance to follow up here?

#9 Updated by Stephen Real almost 4 years ago

I have an update which is to confirm that when I use Safari, with the credentials cdev/community to login to I land on a Red Hat test page. However, when I use the same credentials in Firefox, I successfully land on the home page for CDEV.

Thanks, Stephen. It's likely that the issue you described in #4677 is the same as the one that Chris has reported here, but let's track them separately in case they're different. I'll update that other ticket once I've heard back from IT.

Haven't heard anything about this in a while, so I'm guessing it was a bad configuration being cached by browsers. If it comes up again, please reopen.
