Impossible to login after migration


Recommended Posts

For some reason I can't login after migrating my site from local to live.

I'm pretty sure it knows the password is good as when I enter a bad one I see "login failed', when I enter the correct one, it just seems to redirect me back to login.

Has anyone else had the same problem?

If you first installed PW seperately on your remote server and later imported your database tables from your local dev setup, I guess the userAuthSalt strings in your local and remote config files (right at the bottom of them) differ. As the string is used to encode your password when saved in the database as well as the one entered on login, this may cause your well-known password being rejected, when the userAuthSalt was changed.

EDIT: Ah, I just saw that the topic is also addressed in the thread Arjen pointed you to.
