    Can't login to authorize upgrade to Umbraco 8.1

    Hi, I'm trying to migrate my Umbraco 7.13 to Umbraco 8.1. I'm using this guide. I've succesfully completed step 1 so my site is now using version 7.14. I've set my connectionstring and i changed the version in my web.config to 7.14.0 but when i lauch it it will go to a login screen where I can't login to authorize the upgrade (url is http://localhost:59950/umbraco/AuthorizeUpgrade?redir=%2finstall%2f%3fredir%3dtrue%26url%3dhttp%253a%252f%252flocalhost%253a59950%252fumbraco#/login/false?returnPath=%252Fcontent). I can't login with the account created in the setup, which is logicall cause I'm using a different database now, and I can't login using the accounts made in 7.13.

    I've stumbled across this issue and tried the suggested solve but that didn't work for me. Can someone help me?

    It's worth trying in an incognito window. I've sometimes managed to get my browser into a state where I'm logging in with a valid account, but then 8.1 sees cookies set by a previous version that it doesn't understand and thinks I need to log in again.

    Thanks for your reply, unfortunatly it doesn't work, I even tried it on a different pc. I fear it has something to do with the Database connection but I'm not sure.

    I've tried resetting the password with this package but it didn't helped. Since this didn't work I'm nearly certain that it has something to do with de database connection but I can't really think of what is going wrong.

    Hi Tomas

    I've had the same problem.

    In my case, it was caused by that the properties on UsersMembershipProvider in Web.config wasn't the same on the 2 projects.

    So try copying the properties from the v7 project to your v8 project, that was what fixed it for me.
