Hi all,

I've just finished setting up YAF on my server, and now I'm starting the install Wizard.

But I've got an error.

When I'm writting a Admin Password I'm getting this popup error everytime: "Creating Admin User Failed: the password provided id invalid. Please inter a valid password"

The password I'm trying with is: LMKvej6

What am I doing wrong?

Best regards

pth

Try an underscore... I think the default settings require passwords with at least 1 minimum non-alphanumeric character. You can override that in the web.config, I always do as it's very annoying.

When I post fp:mddubs in a topic, I'm leaving my footprint there so I can track it once I get into coding/supporting. (Yes I stole this off Mek 🙂, who stole this off Ederon 🙂 )

Hello, Im trying to avoid the use of non-alphanumeric caracters in the password in the 1.9.3, and I have read you should do it throught the web.config.

That is my membershipprovider

<membership defaultProvider="YafMembershipProvider" hashAlgorithmType="SHA1">

<providers>

<clear/>

<add connectionStringName="yafnet" applicationName="YetAnotherForum" name="YafMembershipProvider" passwordAttemptWindow="10" enablePasswordRetrieval="true" enablePasswordReset="true" requiresQuestionAndAnswer="false" requiresUniqueEmail="false" passwordFormat="Encrypted" minRequiredPasswordLength="5" minRequiredNonalphanumericCharacters="0" type="YAF.Providers.Membership.YafMembershipProvider"/>

</providers>

</membership>

But it stills ask for non-alphanumeric, anyone knows what am I doing wrong?

Use an uppercase "A"

Had same issue:wink: minRequiredNonAlphanumericCharacters="0"
