    Sorry! We could not process your edit due to a loss of session data.

    I installed MediaWiki recently, and since then it's been a bit of a constant battle. When I try to edit a page, I can edit it if I'm not logged in. But once I do log in, if I try and edit a page I get the following error:

    "Sorry! We could not process your edit due to a loss of session data."

    I've done research on the issue and tried some of the fixes, but so far nothing has worked.

    Many of the fixes, including This One, say the issue lies in php.ini, but I have no idea where that is or how to go about said fix to make the wiki work. :\

    Any help is fully appreciated!

    This thread should help you. You can also change the session_save path to the default one:
    /home/users/web/b1506/pow.username/htdocs/cgi-bin/tmp . Use the one which is given in php.ini page.

    Hmm, my session.save_path is the "/home/users/web/b1234/pow.username/htdocs/cgi-bin/tmp" one in php.ini. :\

    And it's doing something, as in that directory I find a few "sess_57389783291" (where the numbers are a string of random numbers) files, but still no dice. I can edit and save files if I'm not logged in, but logged in, I get that error when I try and save after an edit.

    I'm not sure exactly how MediaWiki works, but maybe the issue is along the lines of a http URL is used when not logged in, and a https URL being used when logged in?

    Perhaps you could create a temporary admin type user in your site so one could see/interact with the error?

    Unfortunately, that's not the case. :\
