I have looked at the database. The LDAP tables look the same as before (as far as I can tell).

Guessing that "save" has broken something. If it is logging in that's not working, I would suggest going into the DB via something other than management and checking for settings.

Hi all

Hope you can help! Just upgraded our XOT installation to 2.1 using the 2.1 ZIP and 2.1_update zip from the community site. I did the following:

(0)    Backed up XOT 2.0 installation

1)      Extracted 2.1 zip and copied files over top of XOT installation

2)      Extracted 2.1 update zip and copied over top of XOT installation

3)      Tried to login to XOT via browser - logged me in as a Guest

4)      Edited auth_config and commented out guest, opted for Ldap.

5)      Successfully logged in OK and could see my own content

6)      Logged in to Management.php to tweak some of the help text, clicked "save"

7)      Could no longer login to index.php

8)      Reverted changes in mangement.php - saved

9)      Still couldn't login to index

10)   Repeated steps 1 and 2 and then 4 to overwrite files

11)   Still can't login.

I'm a bit stuck! As far as I can tell the Ldap settings inside management.php and the MySQL database look fine. Can't see any errors, cleared cash, tried 3 different browsers.
