Thread: Cannot access opensuse forum - get an unrecognized request for php download

    Default Cannot access opensuse forum - get an unrecognized request for php download

    Just tried to post some questions on the forum and I am getting a very strange response with a request to open or download forum.php which is a PHP script from https://forums.opensuse.org. This happened on both Leap 42.3
    and 15. Found an oblique way to get around the problem using google but am concerned.

    What is this about? Shouldn't be here should it?. Is there a problem and what should I do about it.

    The same thing happend when using firefox in ubuntu, so something is wrong with the site.
    I changed the url of my bookmark to http://forums.opensuse.org/forum.php
    This works without the request to download forum.php.

    Yes, I have been seeing that. It is frustrating.

    When I see that, I change the "https:" to "http" and I possibly add "/forum.php" after the "opensuse.org" -- and then it seems to work. But something is broken somewhere.

    Hi Operius,
    Many thanks. Worked for me. Login was mangled but not so much that it was broken.
    Cheers.

    Hi
    All part of the split from Microfocus, changes going on with single sign on etc creating issues. Clear all your openSUSE, SUSE, Microfocus and Novell cookies out...

    Doesn't this belong in the Forums Feedback forum?

    In any case,
    Although I'm not seeing the problem here in these Forums, I see it now in the "Lizards" blogging part of the website.

    Would be nice if any migration is done with more testing.
    So, for instance if cookies was known to be a known issue, then the cookie TTL should have been set short to avoid problems during the change (assuming that would address the issue).

    This is a rare instance where I'm perhaps glad that the MicroFocus SSO for their web assets was broken... a year ago? 2 years now? Such that I've had to re-login repeatedly even if logged into some part(s) before. At least the whole thing isn't inaccessible.

    But, even that should be fixed.
    SSO should mean that you login only <once>, not re-enter the same credentials over and over again.

    [EDIT] - Well, it seems that the MicroFocus SSO is thoroughly broken for the Lizards blogging pages... At first I saw a PHP code page, then some kind of "groups management" page which likely should have been seen only by Admins, and now... nothing, am just returned to the original Lizards blog page without being logged in. Will see if it's sorted out by tomorrow...

    Hi
    Unlikely until someone reports an issue to the openSUSE admin email address, AFAIK it's one thing slated to be moved...

    Yeah I've had the same issue for a couple days as well with Firefox and Tor. PHP script, so it's an error with the site...plus it seems numerous people are having the problem.
    I've just been accessing past the main forum page through Google.
