Got a strange problem

I set the forum up initially on a development server, not the live one.

I registered the admin via the dev server when installing, but now I've transferred the software accross I can no longer login or change my password?

I can register new users and change their passwords but not for the admin account?

I assume its something to do with password hashing differences between the dev and live servers but the software is the same?

If you're using 1.93; you've probably used a different web.config as the hash settings are in the membership provider settings stored in the web.config.

When I post FP:Mek in a topic, I'm leaving my footprint there so I can track it once I get into coding/supporting. (Yes I stole this off Ederon 🙂 )

If you can access the database tables you can create a dummy account and then go into the yaf_user table and change the flags column to "3" for that user. This will set the user as a host admin then sign in as that user and go to the old admins profile and reset there password. I had the same issue when i did a upgrade from on RC2 install. could not login and could not change password. something like could not verify my answer to password question.

did you find the IS TEST checkbox?

Managed to sort my admin account issue by creating a new account and copying the password hash over in the membership database
