Not able to login to Wordpress using password

Post by jambo »

Hello, I really appreciate the help getting up and running!! I know I am close.

I have the two systems connected and following is the MariaDB output fro the use "jambo":

phpBB3:
MariaDB [bbtest]> select user_id, username, username_clean, user_password from bbtest.phpbb_users where username like 'jambo';
+---------+----------+----------------+--------------------------------------------------------------+
| user_id | username | username_clean | user_password |
+---------+----------+----------------+--------------------------------------------------------------+
| 11515 | jambo | jambo | $2y$10$lDKiM1tnZq4sL04nEyCSJu/mkHJMV8y6D/mPC1nTaVAtLDEU6oc.5G |
+---------+----------+----------------+--------------------------------------------------------------+

Wordpress DB:

MariaDB [bbtest]> select ID, user_login, user_pass from wptest.wptest_users where user_login like 'jambo';
+------+------------+--------------------------------------------------------------+
| ID | user_login | user_pass |
+------+------------+--------------------------------------------------------------+
| 5378 | jambo | $2y$10$lDKiM1tnZq4sL04nEyCSJu/mkHJMV8y6D/mPC1nTaVAtLDEU6oc.5G |
+------+------------+--------------------------------------------------------------+


As you can see, the passwords are the same, but I cannot log in to the wordpress side, only the phpBB side?

Could this be a utf8 mismatch? I did need to upgrade my usernames in phpBB3 to utf8 for MariaDB.

Thanks!!!

James

I have done more testing and here is what I have:

1) I created a new user in wordpress.

2) I cannot log in to wordpress with the new user credentials I just created.

3) I can login with that new user in phpBB3. So the user got transferred to phpB3 which is great!!!

4) When I go back to wordpress from phpBB3, after logging into phpBB3, I still cannot get into wordpress (or login there) and when I come back to phpBB3 I am logged out of the forums....

The forums are a sub-directory under my wordpress site an on the same domain.

Thank you or all your help!!!

James

Please ignore my question, it was the cookie setting! I needed to set the cookie on the fully qualified domain (including host for some reason). Its fine because it is a test site, and I will figure it out on the production once we move over there!

THANK YOU for a GREAT plugin!!!!
