password /setup

Post by roze » Sun 18. Sep 2022, 17:32

I've made a update to CMsimple 5.8

The website seems to be working OK, but my password does not work any more.

I've deleted the map setup and the file setup.php and upload the new ones.

when I go to https://www.stichtingvaart.nl/setup.php is says
Setup is not active.

How you can activate setup, you will find in the readme.php in the Root folder of the CMSimple download.
what do I have to do?

You should READ the setup.php ;) (open it in a code editor like notepad++)

There you will find that:
S E T U P
---------
You also can change the password via setup:

1. Upload the file ./setup/setupControl.php to the installation folder of your CMSimple website, and the setup mode will be activated.
2. On some older servers maybe you have to make the setupControl.php writable (666) to activate Setup.
3. Call the ./setup.php (in the CMSimpleRoot) with a web browser and set your password.

You have 5 min for the setup, after that you have to upload the file setupControl.php again.

Sorry, but I do not understand what you are doing. What you are writing in the address line of the browser, when you try to change the password? Have you a link for me?

Hm - and why you do not read the readme.php? You will find there all you need ... do I really have to copy that all to this post again?

I have read the reame.txt many times.

Could it be the server that got some new safety ?

I have uploaded all 5 times. changed the file permissions. Still i end up at the same blind road.

Wow - strange :shock:

Some times ago, an admin has uploaded the file setupControl.php to the one installation, and tried to change the password in another one - that was a long thread :lol:

Maybe the server detects the setupControl.php as old. Open it offline, change something, save it and upload it quickly - you have 5 minutes.

But since CMSimple 5.4, setup.php no longer asks for filetime of setupControl.php, setupControl.php will be deleted when the new password is assigned or after 5 minutes by CMSimple itself ...

I hope you find out what is the problem,
