Cannot Login to Admin

Post by R0CKY »

I cannot login into admin.

I used password recovery, received the password in email, and it is still rejected.

Can I reset it in myphpadmin?

Thanks.

Hi,

yes, it's strange. You're running v3.0? Or v2.9? Do you have database access via e.g. phpMyAdmin?

Hi,

please check the table "faquser", how many entries do you have in the column "login_attempts"?

Hi

It shows 7 attempts, and it goes up by one after every attempt.

After a password recovery is used, it tells me "Wrong login name or password."

Thanks.

Hi,

it's "security.salt" in the table "faqconfig".

Hi

Please see the image attached to my previous post - there is no security.salt in my faqconfig table.

This could be because this installation was from a very old version of the FAQ?

Hi,

it should be created during a upgrade.

Hi,

please send me a mail. I think something's terribly broken in your installation.
