Does anyone know a simple solution to this issue?
I was thrown out of Umbraco 6.06 midway (I assume) through installing uCompoennts. The result is that my admin U/P no longer works. What am I supposed to do? Every day I'm working on Umbraco it seems I'm having to fix something that breaks. The challenge is getting a bit tiring on a Monday morning :)
Thanks for any help
Difficult to tell what went wrong there, can you access the database ? are there any error logs ? did you install a custom uComponents 6.x build ? (there's a compatability grid here: https://ucomponents.codeplex.com/ - )
I installed the package on the Package center as it said it was 6 compatible. I perhaps should have check the specific build. But assuming the build is 5.x on the center then it should be compatible. I have database access. Anything in particular I should look for? I found this article:
And I guess I will try and alter the admin password directly within the database, unless anyone has any better options?
If still you are not able to logged in as admin try doing following.
After that run the following command in sql after selecting your database.
Using the above will help you to login in to admin site.
Okay that was very stressfull. I though it hadn't worked but notice 2 lines in the web.config: UmbracoMembershipProvider & UsersMembershipProvider.
I think I change the wrong one with no result. I have backend access now.
Thank you o much for your help
Glade it helped... Thanks for the High-Five.
Hmmm ...... After an hour of working. I am getting the same probelm. My passwords are set to "Clear" and I edited the DB a number of time with different creds, but I am locked outof the backend.
Any other ideas?
This is too wierd. If I change the DB settings back to admin and default it works. For some reason it's not reading the recent DB changes. I know azure sometimes has a problem with caching so I restarted as a precaution. I'm a little concerned now that I'm working on a flaky system. I think I'll set up a new "unique" user. Would I set up first and them change the web.config back to "hashed"?
No if you put it back to hashed it will not work.... See by changing the format to be clear your are telling the environment to check against non encrypted password version. So please keep it as is.
Also if possiable keep it clear for some time then get a hash version of known password and then set it.
is working on a reply...
