Full Version: Unable to login with correct user name and password
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Tried to login this morning with my usual admin and password combo but it gave me the error;

incorrect password
The user/password combination
is not a valid user of the system

I have reset the password in the database with phpmyadmin. I have also checked the file permissions for the weberp directory, just in case the host has reset them but they all seems ok. Huh

I am able to login with an employee account that I created in setup, but I need to login to the main admin account again to continue setting things up.

What can I do next?


You cannot use phpmyadmin directly. Just revise the password back for admin, and the password is 'f0f77a7f88e7c1e93ab4e316b4574c7843b00ea4'. It's hashed password-weberp.

Then you can modify your password with setup->user maintenance. Then edit it.

Best regards!

Exson, That worked perfectly!
Many thanks Big Grin
Dear Exon,

Then, is it i actually a security breach?

any one with this hash can logon to any account and could tamper the whole system.
Please clarify...

No - Exson's post just explains how to set the password using phpMyAdmin - if anyone has access to phpMyAdmin then this is the security breach as any data is visible can be changed etc.

to set the password in mysql client or phpMyAdmin use:

UPDATE www_users SET password=sha1('my_new_password') WHERE userid='my_user_id';

where 'my_new_password' is your new password in plain text and
where 'my_user_id' is your webERP username
