login error

General Discussion
  • Hello,

    I have a newly installed nodebb since the old had lots of problems. This time I was using redis instead of mongodb. After installation I did run ./nodebb setup I have configured everything in there I start the nodebb. When I try to login with my admin account which was configured at the setup stage I get the following error in console.

       Error: invalid csrf token

    is there anyone who can help me figure this out?
