After upgrading to v1.9.4-RC1 I found that I couldn't login to my forum and couldn't send myself a reminder as my user name was not found.

The solution for me was in the membership provider section of web.config. The v191-upgrade-web.config file recommended:


<membership defaultProvider="YafMembershipProvider" hashAlgorithmType="MD5">
  <providers>
    <clear/>
      <add connectionStringName="yafnet" applicationName="YetAnotherForum" name="YafMembershipProvider" requiresUniqueEmail="false" type="YAF.Providers.Membership.YafMembershipProvider" hashHex="true" hashCase="upper" />
    </providers>
  </membership>

With this section I could not login, so I changed it to


<membership defaultProvider="YafMembershipProvider" hashAlgorithmType="SHA1">
  <providers>
    <clear/>
      <add connectionStringName="yafnet" applicationName="YetAnotherForum" name="YafMembershipProvider" 
requiresUniqueEmail="false" type="YAF.Providers.Membership.YafMembershipProvider" useSalt="true" />
    </providers>
  </membership>

Now I can login again and have also tested the sending of password reminders, which works too.

Possibly my problem was that I didn't check which version I was running before starting the upgrade. I could well have been running something later than v1.9.1 and caused the problem that way.

YMMV.

when i had this problem i used the included web.config from the install, discarding the one i used in previous installations. use the recommended one and rename it as web.config.

I have checked the database after upgrade, and in table [yaf_prov_RoleMembership] everything is empty.. both RoleID and UserID.. could this be the culprit?
