password reset error

edited September 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
A member just emailed me. She forgot her password. When she reset it she got this error. "Some problems were encountered Password reset request failed validation. Please be sure to copy the entire url from your email." I tried the link as well and got the same. What do I do now to retrieve her password. Thanks /edit.. i just upgraded to V1 if that helps

    I don't know how solve this problem (it is working on my forum). But you can munually change it.

    Use phpmyadmin or something like it to browse the vanilla user table. Change her password with yours. Sign in her account with your password. Change the password and give her the new password.

    hmm, i tried that and the password feilds seemed to be encrypted.. her password was like 324965432io324og832467 (everyones was similar)

    Passwords are normally hashed, but if you want to set a password manually in the database, you can just use plain text. Just put "newpassword", and she'll be able to log in with "newpassword" (of course, you might want to pick something other than "newpassword", and tell her to switch it as soon as she logs in).

    ahh great thanks

    What I meant was to copy your encrypted password. But I just see that you can set directly a new password; when you edit on entry, select MD5 in the colum "Fonction" and put the new password in the column "Value".

    got a similar problem when i test the get password, i have a strange error : Error Message Failed to read email template (/home.10/autourdeq/www/vanilla/languages/French/email_password_request.txt).

    it does not look like that file (email_password_request.txt) is included in the French language addon. Maybe you should contact the author of that addon (try this thread).

    while waiting on update of the french translation, you can copy email_password_request.txt from /languages/English/ to /languages/French/ (and translate it).

    email_password.txt is there, but not email_password_request.txt

    (at least, not in the french addon i downloaded last night.)

    Youre right ! I juste copy the file, but what i was expecting seem to be justify ! still error : Error Message Unable to send email. The SMTP server reported the following error: Affected Elements Email.ServerParse(); possible to have a blocking smtp with ovh ?

    Try not using an SMTP server at all and instead rely on the mail server on your host. Go to settings tab / application settings and clear out all entries in the SMTP Server area...

    I dont' have any smtp settings and the password reset still ends up in error when using the link sent to email

    revised: ok now I see what it did, it sent 2 emails the first one was a bad link the second one worked, is that unusual for it to send 2 emails ?
