    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 ;)

    Good answer @Marcin! I have seen this problem with Umbraco version 8.6.3 and after updating UsersMembershipProvider as follows, I could finally login!

    Update: And the following screen is sadly a Timeout error, which is hopefully easy to fix.

    Update 2: In case some other fellow Umbraco Developers see the same problem; Data migration is taking a long time, but I haven't seen the timeout error after updating the connection string as described here.

    Update 3: Same Timeout error after a few hours, after migrating some of the data. Connection Timeout is set to 3600.

    <!-- Membership Provider -->
        <membership defaultProvider="UmbracoMembershipProvider" userIsOnlineTimeWindow="15">
            <clear />
            <add name="UmbracoMembershipProvider" type="Umbraco.Web.Security.Providers.MembersMembershipProvider, Umbraco.Web" minRequiredNonalphanumericCharacters="0" minRequiredPasswordLength="10" useLegacyEncoding="false" enablePasswordRetrieval="false" enablePasswordReset="false" requiresQuestionAndAnswer="false" defaultMemberTypeAlias="Member" passwordFormat="Hashed" allowManuallyChangingPassword="false" />
            <!--<add name="UsersMembershipProvider" type="Umbraco.Web.Security.Providers.UsersMembershipProvider, Umbraco.Web" />-->
            <add name="UsersMembershipProvider" type="Umbraco.Web.Security.Providers.UsersMembershipProvider, Umbraco.Web" minRequiredNonalphanumericCharacters="0" minRequiredPasswordLength="8" useLegacyEncoding="true" enablePasswordRetrieval="false" enablePasswordReset="true" requiresQuestionAndAnswer="false" passwordFormat="Hashed" />

    In general yes, this always worked for me when I tried to upgrade to several versions of Umbraco 8.

    Except Umbraco 8.6 - despite the UsersMembershipProvider has ll the attributes that in other versions, the login does not work.
