Login Issue

Post by manuel » 18 Sep 2017, 12:57

Using OpenCats 0.9.1 (Beas) on a shared host. Never had any trouble.

Problem: When I try to login, nothing seems to happen.
When I try to login with a false login I get the message: "Invalid username or password." so something is happening.

I've got a workaround but that is very inconvenient.

My hosting provider has the possibility to change the PHP version. When I make a switch, no matter what version, I can login for some time.

In my opinion it must be some PHP setting. Has anybody got some suggestions please?

Hi Manuel,

sounds very odd. But 0.9.1 is quite old.. mind you that's what I run, too! As 0.9.1 is before password hashing, you can change the associated password in phpmyadmin easily. I suspect your apache error log is full of errors that may help? However officially the answer should be - please backup everything in sight, then upgrade to 0.9.4 as 0.9.1 has known issues, security holes, etc.
