Login Password Problems after Upgrade 3.2.9 to 3.3.0 (PHP version changes?)

Post by genshijin »

Seeing quite a lot of people in the connection log having problems logging in - pasword error. I myself, as Admin, could not login after update using saved login details on Firefox. It is the first time it has happened to me and started just after the update tp 3.3.0
And manually the correct password for me would not work. I had to reset password.
Anyone else experiencing this?

Have you at some point updated your PHP version to 7.3 or 7.4 and then downgraded it to 7.2?

From 7.0 or 7.1 I think to 7.3 and back to 7.2

... It was set at 7.3 (more than asked for) by support at Bluehost as It was not working for me from Cpanel settings (they keep fiddling with options). I did drop it lower to 7.2 in case there were problems with extensions.


Update
It is now back up to PHP version: 7.3.13
If that helps at this point....

As far as I know, if you use PHP 7.3 or higher phpBB will re-hash passwords with the Argon algorithm on the next login.

So if passwords were re-hashed they certainly won't work with bcrypt blowfish, used with PHP 7.2 or lower.

Then you will need to upgrade your PHP version to 7.3/7.4
