Converted from SP 1.4! to 2.5

Admin user name and pass word don't work.

Tested on old board pass words are correct.

Maybe I am confused?
Do I use Administrator pass word from old board
or is there something else I am supposed to use?

Thanks!

 Yes ... if admin.vars was replaced, which should have been done after you run Setup.pl, then the conversion and running the Maintenance Functions.
  Before this admin is the username/password.

Nothing will log me in.

I even went to the admin.var and copied the password
it works on the old board but not on the new one.

This is the trunticated contents of the admin.var file
On the new Yabb 2.5 board

### User variables for ID: admin ###

'realname',"Mark
"
'password',"ch54857874a
"
'position',"Administrator
"
'addgroups',""
'email',"admin@mysite.com
"

admin
ch54857874a
will log me into the old board.
But but not the new one.


This is the error message.


Username / Password mismatch.
The Username you specified does not exist or you entered a wrong password.


Thanks.

  You realize Mark is not a login name ......

'password',"ch54857874a"

 Simply change the password (between the quotes) to any plain text word and it will allow you to login once (with the new password).

Thanks for the help.
Sorry, I still can't log in.

The log on information on the old board is.

Username= admin
Password= ch54857874a

After loging in my board name is Mark

This is the short verson of the admin.var file

### User variables for ID: admin ###

'realname',"Mark
"
'password',"ch54857874a
"
'position',"Administrator
"
'addgroups',""
'email',"admin@mysite.com
"

After converting to the new board I see that
the new Board is in mantinence mode and requires
admin log in.

I try to log in with

Username= admin
Password= ch54857874a

and get error:

Username / Password mismatch.
The Username you specified does not exist or you entered a wrong password.

So I look at admin.var on new board
Contents are exactly as on old board.

### User variables for ID: admin ###

'realname',"Mark
"
'password',"ch54857874a
"
'position',"Administrator
"
'addgroups',""
'email',"admin@mysite.com
"

So I change contents of admin.var to:

### User variables for ID: admin ###

'realname',"Mark
"
'password',"admin"
'position',"Administrator
"
'addgroups',""
'email',"admin@mysite.com
"

And using:

username= admin
Password= admin

I get same error:


Username / Password mismatch.
The Username you specified does not exist or you entered a wrong password.

Thanks.

Hmm after I try again I get different message.

Only the admin can login at the moment, because our forum is in Maintenance Mode.
Please try again later. Thank you!

hmm, that's not good - admin's are supposed to be able to login while the board is in maintenance.

BUT for now - in yabb2/variables, find the Settings.pl file

Depending on how you are setup with hosting, you may need to download to be able to edit the file - if si - fix it and be sure to upload in ASCII/text mode, reset the permissions if needed.

fix the maintenance line so it is like this -

$maintenance = 0;

that should turn off maintenance so we can see what is happening perhaps.

That may not fix everything, and it might - its almost impossible to tell

I seem to remember something like this once (or close) before - I'll need to look for it.

Good Luck

Once you have run the conversion of the old forum, your username/password is the old admin's username/password, not adim/admin any more.

I never changed it.
I only changed the password.
I can log into the old board but not the new one.

And it will not come out of mantance mode.

I am just going to delete the new board and do the converson on a new install.

I must have done something wrong for it to be this
much problem. Thanks every one for the help ill post back

Before I deleted the board I went and checked the settings
again and I saw a file in yabb2/variables called
maintenance.lock

the contents of the file were.

"Remove this file if your board is in maintenance for no reason"

Now it comes out of maintenance.

All the post are gone but that is another story and another day

Thanks again guys for all the help.

Sheee wiz....

I deleted the new board.
Installed a new 2.5 board.
Ran the converter again.

Exactly the same result!

I have now deleted the maintenance lock file.
So my board is open. (Not in maintenance mode)

Nobody can long in.
No members.
and the other administrator can not log in.
Everybody gets the same message.


Username / Password mismatch. The Username you specified does not exist or you entered a wrong password.

The same usernames and passwords work on the old board.


Any Ideas?

Thanks!
