@SweetP haha no worries, glad the image upload in your forum is working again.
cache is not set to be deleted so I can safely rule that out. it seems cookies are again showing up e.g. I am seeing an entry for this forums URL. I am unsure as to what was going on initially. I think we can consider this solved. I'll ping, if this happens again with another site.

I'm assuming it's not currently working because the different installation path:
