Orchard 1.1 keeps logging me out

I am hosting two sites on winhost.com. One 1.0 site and one 1.1 site. The 1.1 site keeps logging me out when I use it. It's as if the timeout is set so short that it almost instantly kills my session. I can log in, access the Dashboard, and then, after hitting about four or five menus, I will be sent back to the login screen.  I am willing to blame winhost.com, but I am not  having this problem on Orchard 1.0.

It might be that your hoster put a limit on the memory occupied by the app and every time you go over it restarts. You might want to ask winhost to share their logs with you and tell you the reason for the restarts so we can debug this further.

Oh, actually a more likely reason for that is that you don't have a machine key configured: http://orchardproject.net/docs/Setting-up-a-machine-key.ashx

Machine key it was. Thanks.
