The following problem has raised it's ugly head causing confusion amongst the business users of the CMS. We recently moved all our installations of CMS to a new set of servers - we took direct copies of the entire file structure and database, placed the file structure on the new server, set up IIS accordingly and pointed the web.config to the new DB - and all appeared to be working fine from my perspective (as a habitual firefox user!)
But i received reports from the business complaining they could not log in, suspecting their passwords had changed or something similar. But when i tried i could log in under their credentials (again through firefox). It didn't take long to realise this problem was based around using IE, so as a temporary workaround i told everyone to use firefox from now on (bless their cotton socks for not using it in the first place!)
When a log in is attempted in IE, the form posts as expected but no action appears to be taken, no complaint of invalid credentials or the likes - i suspect this may be JS based or perhaps something to do with settings in IE? i cannot test this locally as i do not have a problem when doing the same on my local machine.
So i was wondering, any idea why this might suddenly be the case, given that as i mentioned the server has changed but nothing else has, the environment is a carbon-copy of the previous one.
Any help would be much appreciated, the business people are always hesitant to move from their cosy world of IE haha :-)
