Ok. so my users cannot login after the upgrade.

I have looked through the threads and there has been many topics on this. So far I am still having the issue.

Any help would be appreciated.

BTW

I have been using YAF for years now and I really have to tip my hat to the dev team. You guys should be bronzed. YAF is completely awesome and the improvements are outstanding. Thanks for your time and troubles.


Best Regards,

2.Upgrade.

3.Change config to recommended one.

Interestingly, I thought that is what I did...

However, I have periods of genious sometimes punctuated with moments of idiocy ... Perhaps I was incorrect.

With that said, my guess at this point is:

1. Restore from backup

2. Upgrade again

3. Make myself a stiff drink and keep repeating "there's no place like 127.0.0.1"

4. Pray & burn candles

5. Cross fingers & test again...

Unless of course there is a script or something likewise completely ingenious that you guys have cooked up...

Please post what versions you've been upgrading from i.e. did you start your YAF install before 1.93 and then post your web.config Provider settings.

When I post FP:Mek 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 Ederon 🙂 )

I have the same problem after upgrading to YAF 1.9.5 from 1.9.4. The upgrade went great with no errors and I am able to look at the forums. If I try to login it says that "The password or user name is incorrect. Please try again." If I try to recover my password and put the answer in for my security question it says "Your answer could not be verified. Please try again". Any help is greatly appreciated.

I fixed my problem by taking the membership information from my 1.9.4 web.config and pasted it into my 1.9.5 web.config.

Just an FYI: I used the recommended web.config instead of taking my 1.9.4 web.config and using it when I upgraded. The reason being that it was referencing the yaf.controls.ui. There was no where in the readme article that told me how to get rid of those references. You might want to update it.
