a password hashed in the one way uncrackable MD5 algorithm:




go and paste that into google and see how long it takes you to work out the
actual password…

Yes management.php, it is LDAP


If you go to your sitedetails
table, you can set the admin_username and admin_password. Assuming these are
set, and it sounds like they are – does it just say they aren’t correct. Mine
works fine – I think Johnathan’s works as well – pretty sure Ron’s works too.


Re MD5 – yep, over sight on my
part – reasoning – we had a lot of people with 0.5 and 0.8 installs where there
was no admin role. When we moved to 0.9 and 1.0 originally we modded the
logindetails table to allow for a user role flag, but this would mean everyone
with an install modding their tables. Which seemed a hassle. So I put the admin
username into the sitedetails table at the last minute instead, and left it.


You’re welcome to MD5 it
yourself though – you’d just need to put an un md5 command into config.php. 


I’ll put it in the list for the
next version.

Hello All,


I have installed the full version Xerte on a
linux virtual server. All seemed to go according to plan until I came to log


I cannot log in using the administrators
username and password. I have re-installed / checked fields in database etc and
it still will not allow me in.


I have not got LDAP running yet, but am
assuming that LDAP is not required for the admin account, and that admin is
completely independent of the normal routines with the credential residing in
the sitedetails table? (would it not be better to MD5 the password in site


Has anyone else experienced this problem?


Thanks, Jeremy
