    Login Fails when trying to upgrade

    I'm trying to upgrade following the steps here

    but after changing the value for UmbracoDbDsn and the version number for Umbraco in the web.config, I can't log in.

    The log entry says

    "Login attempt failed for username admin from IP address"

    Any help is appreciated.

    EDIT: I'm on 7.15.0 and trying to get to 8.1.0

    Thanks Muiris

    Faced the same issue today. Virtual hug.

    We need to move/ensure all the settings values used for UmbracoMembershipProvider and UsersMembershipProvider, especially useLegacyEncoding="true" which is not present in the 8.1.0 web.config by default.

    After copying and pasting the settings values from exisitng app to the new one (for both providers) it worked. Psstt.. or at least moved us to the next error with the DB quota ;)
