oh my.


nobody says that you should be logged as admin. ususlly i logged as normal user to chat with people and got problems to installing EM, so I relogin into admin acount and there it goes...

but this problem is not covered by README (or i just missed it... but it MUST be in a INSTALLING section, not in TRUBLESHOOTIN' section ))))

Hello everyone,

Be careful, the SQL statement in the Readme is wrong.

UPDATE phpbb_config SET 'd41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e' WHERE config_name = 'EM_password' LIMIT 1



It should be:


UPDATE phpbb_config SET config_value='d41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e' WHERE config_name = 'EM_password' LIMIT 1;



Also, as I was about to run it, I decided to check out the current value of
that field, and it turns out that it is... d41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e
upon initial installation - which means that it is already BLANK, and
you can go ahead and leave the password "blank" on the initial
installation, and then you will get access to the EM Settiings, and be
able to change the password to something new.

This is a NON-DOCUMENTED note which will save time to a lot of people
if they just change the following FAQ:

I get a "INVALID PASSWORD SUPPLIED" error when trying to enter the install page.

You have entered a password other than the one set for entrance to EasyMOD or you have not entered a password at all. Try entering a different password.




To a more helpful:
I get a "INVALID PASSWORD SUPPLIED" error when trying to enter the install page.

You have entered a password other than the one set for entrance to EasyMOD or you have not entered a password at all. If this is the first time you
run it, try entering a "blank" password, otherwise you can reset the password
by running the following mysql statement:

UPDATE phpbb_config SET config_value='d41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e' WHERE config_name = 'EM_password' LIMIT 1;


The above statement will let you enter the settings without a password,
and allow you to immediately set a new password within the Adminsitrator
Control Panel.

Good luck.

Thanks for that!

I just missed it... Thankfully the statement would only generate an error.

All fixed :-).

Just FYI, I'm not retired, I'm on indefinite hiatus. :mrgreen:

And I wish my Version Changer link would stay consistent... it appears to be down again.... It's good to link to the topic here, though I'm worried people might download the wrong one if I happen to release a new version. On the other hand, I'm not sure there's any better way to link to it to make sure they always get the latest version. (If my website were always working, that'd be the best place to get the latest version. Maybe link to both locations?)

OK, just me popping in. See ya.

Well that's just like me ;). I come here from time to time to fix some links or see what is going on. I see that the only one that still stays on the battle filed is the Nightrider :).

Best wishes to you both, Nux.
