  • Password oddities....... etc

    http://patriotnetwork.net/
    Version of VBulletin 2.2.1
    MySQL version .. ??
    Apacher version.. not sure
    Only files edited are for simple attributes like color etc ... no major changes, only some html additions..

    No file found called phpinfo.php .......... in admin directory or anywhere else!

    We moved servers not so long ago .. maybe a month ... and had no real probs to speak of ..... but, now .......

    The problem ...... one member, in particular ... has great probs ''staying in'' ... he has logged on (BTW ... he had cleared all his cookies) and whenever he goes to post ... gets the page stating he is ''unregistered'' ... and he then goes to re-enter his info and still has probs.

    He keeps also having to keep scrolling down to log in on home page.

    Another odd thing ... when a member asks for his password to be sent ... all that comes back is username ..... password field is blank. That is very odd.

    We heard some while back that some ''database maintainance'' might be needed. Is this so?? if so what is required ... and anyone had these strange happenings with passwords etc.

    We did even try removing a member from DB, entirely ... and getting him to re-reg .... but still some problems. Another member also has just had examples of similar problems.

    Any input would be gratefully received.

    passwords are now encrypted in 2.2.x so that the forgot password function now returns as reset password and the password template should now not include a password field.. you need to revert that template (best to just upgrade to 2.2.2. and revert that template to fix it)

    as to your member's problem is he viewing via cookies or sessions ? does he have remmeber log in details automatically set to yes or no ?

      Thx Eva ....... we checked with this member to see if he was running cookies, and was also set to ''remember login details'' - so those factors were covered. Main reason his problems were so wierd.
      passwords are now encrypted in 2.2.x so that the forgot password function now returns as reset password and the password template should now not include a password field.. you need to revert that template (best to just upgrade to 2.2.2. and revert that template to fix it)
      when you say ''returns as reset password'' .. not quite sure what you mean ... does that mean that the member will not get a reminder and thus has to start over? Sorry - unclear on this. What should happen?

      And ''revert'' the password template? Do you mean upgrade? We had not upgraded to 2.2.2 simply because we were running stable and didn't want to ''disturb'' things! Is this a must? Or can we replace the password template you refer to with the one available from 2.2.2?

      Sorry to be slow ... but still not as familiar with the software as you.!
