Login problems

I have just installed CS-Cart version 2.0.

The problem is the login and it performs differently depending upon whether anonymous checkout is on or off.

  1. If anonymous checkout is not allowed, clicking sign in returns to the home page.

  2. If anonymous checkout is allowed, I sign in and return to the catalog. It does not indicate I have signed in. I add items to my cart. I click on view cart and it indicates that I have signed in but my cart is empty. If I select continue shopping, I am returned to the catalog and it shows I have items in my cart.
