  • VB3 corrupts passwords!

    I've tried endless amounts of times and I'm getting very impatient here. My forums are pretty big.... around 300MB. I have a T1 line and on that it's pretty timely to keep backing up and uploading a backup of my forums everytime I need to upgrade from VB 2.3.0. (as it doesn't work when I install it)

    The installation process runs very smoothly, but when I try logging into my admincp it does not work. None of my admin accounts work at all. I have no idea what to do and am giving up installing VB3 until then.

    Some help would be appreciated.

    Thank you

    vB3 uses a different password hashing scheme. Try deleting your cookies before loading the page and trying to login..

    What version of the Beta are you using?

      I had a similar problem when I installed to test, so I think WL has the answer...

      FYI, Internet Explorer cookies are located (on Windows Operating Systems) in either:
      Win 95,98,ME
      DRIVE:\windows\cookies
      XP
      DRIVE:\Documents and Settings\LOGIN NAME\Cookies

        Out of the hundred or so daily active members I get, none of them were able to login correctly. I have tried deleting my cookies and even starting over on fresh computer. I'm pretty sure it's not a cookie problem. The funny thing is, when I install it and tryt to go to the admincp, it loads the frames then loads all login box pages.

        Anyway, I'm unsure of which beta I use. Is there any problems with any of them?

        Using my old database (on a different server) I have these forums setup and running: http://www.nintendofire.com/forums/index.php

        What I did was, make a backup of the SQL database and moved it to this location: http://www.nintendonow.com/forums/index.php

        Go ahead, try registering and logging in... I cannot stay logged in.

        Now, so I wouldn't mess up my newly transferred database, I made another database for VB3 testing purposes located here:
        http://www.nintendonow.com/vb3

        This was basically a backup of my DB and an upload of the latest VB3 files and a basic upgrade.

        But yet, on both tests I get the same exact error: Cannot login... So it can't be vBulletin 3 itself. It has to be something else...

          You can look at this thread here: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=73439

          Did you have any problems with any of the steps while upgrading? Didn't skip any somehow?

            This thread seems to match my problem well. I'll browse through it more and see if I can figure this out.

            Thank you.

              It's most probably your cookies. Delete all the cookies in your browser, login and logout again. It happens when you run a testforum as well. vB3 gets confused between the domain paths. Did you change it by any chance?
