Failing logins [May. 31st, 2002|10:15 pm]
LiveJournal Client Discussions


[mood |confused]

sending: mode=login&user=test&hpassword=&getpickws=1&getpickwurls=1&
login failed: Client error: No mode specified.
Client error: No mode specified.

sending: mode=login&user=test&hpassword=&getpickws=1&getpickwurls=1&
login ok

Hrm, I send the exact same info, each time (test's password removed, because everybody knows it) and about one in ten login attempts fail.

Maybe this should go in lj_dev?

yeah, i've been having the same problems. i've attributed it to the recent updates for utf support in hopes that its some glitch that will be ironed out on its own...

...perhaps i may be hoping for too much.

Are you guys sending GET instead of POST?

Unless there's a bug in mozilla, I'm using POST:

var request = new XMLHttpRequest();
request.open("POST", URL, false);

I'll point it at my request capturing script later this weekend

I agree

I've been getting this too, and I'd been using GET before, due to being very lazy indeed. GETs now fail every time, so I've decided to do a POST like it tells you in the distructions.

I have also noticed this failing once in a blue moon or three. The only thing I can think of is that one of the servers is out of sync, i.e. it's not downloading new CVS or whatever.

Failed login with web client

I've had failed login attempts with the web client for a few days, but it seems to be more like 9 out of 10 times.
