Registration page error

Everything had been working fine until sometime today. Now when I invite a user they get the email and when they click the link to go to the registration page an error is generated.

The invitation <GUID> could not be found

I have looked in the event viewer on my SharePoint server and the only error that comes up immediately after inviting the user is the following

Source: ASP.NET 2.0.50727.0
Category: Web Event
Event ID: 1315

Event code: 4005
Event message: Forms authentication failed for the request. Reason: The ticket supplied has expired.
Event time: 5/22/2008 2:11:05 PM

Event ID: cbe1736ef348426385f68d8db1907c4c
Event sequence: 220
Event occurrence: 9
Event detail code: 50202

Any ideas or thoughts?

    Typically this occurs the sub-web used to send the invitation does not match the sub-web of the registration URL. This can occur when a fully qualified Registration URL is used in the Delegation Settings page. Can you please provide the Registration URL for the sub-web used to send out the invitation? You can find this information from (Site Actions -> Delegation Settings -> Modify All Delegation Settings -> Delegation Settings)

    In addition, can you check the Delegation Tree to find the Delegation Base Web for your sub-site. In your sub-site is inheriting permission it will use the settings from the Delegation Base Web when sending out an invitation. You can find the Delegation Base Web from (Site Actions -> Delegation Settings -> Modify All Delegation Settings -> Delegation Tree).

    Finally, if you send you contact information to [email protected] we can schedule some time to look at this issue.

    I thought we had this working the other day after we talked. I don't know what I've done to foul it up.

    Site URL - https://xxx.xxxx.com/ttsg/ttsgprop/gssdprop/GCSR/default.aspx

    Custom registration Link - https://xxx.xxxx.com/_layouts/SPSolutions/Delegation/Register.aspx

    Sub-site does not inherit permissions

    Each sub-site that defines a unique set of permissions must have this option configured. In addition, you need to set the registration URL to the fully qualified path of your site. To correct this issue set the RegistrationURL attribute on the Delegation Settings page. This page can be edited from your sub site from (Site Actions -> Delegation Settings -> Modify All Delegation Settings -> Delegation Settings). In the Navigation section set the Registration URL to ...

    Save the page a resend your invitation.
