  • You do not have a valid password configured for your account.

    Today my host has been doing maintenance for hours and when I return my website to online I try to log in with my user account or log in as admin and the following message appears ... Is it the fault of my host or my website?


    Error: You do not have a valid password configured for your account. Please reset your password via the password reset link.

    EDIT: Users have problems when try accessing their profiles after migration

    If it worked before the maintenance and doesn't work after the maintenance with no change to the software, then chances are something in the maintenance caused the problem. Make sure that the server continues to meet the minimum requirements of the software. If you were using PHP 7.3 or higher prior to the maintenance, make sure that your server is still using PHP 7.3 or higher. The most secure password storage scheme requires that version.

    Did you reset your password using the reset password link? Were you able to login after that?

      I have not reset my admin password because I do not know where I have to click to be able to do it, I also do not want to force my users to change their passwords or anything like that ... I have opened a ticket to the host to see what they tell me. ..

              With the change they put me the version of php 7.1, they have changed me to 7.3 and it has been solved, thanks for guiding me!

              I also do not know why the link to subtract the pass did not appear to me.

                I had the same issue when going from 7.1 to 7.3. All my users got the same error and had to update their passwords.

                  The most likely cause is that your password was stored as Argon2ID. While this is considered to be one the most secure password schemes, it isn't supported in PHP 7.1.

                    This should not have happened. In 7.1, the default password scheme should be bcrypt with a cost factor of 10 or 15 depending on your version of vBulletin. This should have still been a valid scheme in PHP 7.3. It will still be used if Argon2ID is not available in PHP 7.3 and higher. It may be that something changed in PHP's bcrypt algorithm but I didn't see anything in the release notes that should cause this.
