XF 1.3 Weird password issue


Active member
For some weird reason, when users log out, they can't login again and I have to manually reset their password. Any ideas?

It just tells them that their password is no good. I don't know how widespread it is, but I have had a couple of members email me and ask me to reset it.

Can you reproduce it? If not, I can only guess that they are indeed not remembering their password.

The only known cause for people not to be able to login (getting an invalid password message) is if you downgrade to PHP 5.2, as you lose the support for more secure password storage that is part of PHP 5.3+.

Yes, it's possible those members just forgot their passwords, but seeing how it's only happened now after I moved the forum to root, I figured it has something to do with that.

I tried recreating it but so far everything is fine. I'm waiting to hear back from one of the members to find out exactly what the message was that he got. I'll post back here if I hear from him.
