Default change password problem from ISPConfig 3

I just make a clean install of Fedora11 and ISPConfig 3 from svn. Everything is fine and login as admin. Tried add/remove something also feel good! Then, I change the admin password and try to re-login. Problem comes out here! After changed, I cannot re-login with the new password. Then, I go to webmin to see how's the password changed. I found that there're difference with the encoded password if I create a user with password "123", and other user change the password to "123". So, I think that's the problem that I cannot login after cahnge. Seems the encrypt method in password change is not the one with login & create user page.

Were did you change the admin password? Under tools -> password? I just tested it with the svn release and it works fine.

dear till,

yes, I change it from tool -> password. And I think here the only place to change password, right?

I also feel strange that in the password page, after I changed, there's nothing to display that alert me change has been successful, it will return to the normal screen without any wording. Is it correct or it's the problem here? Thanks!

Do you have stuff like "&" in your password? I had the same problem.
I changed my password first time i logged in and could not log in anymore.
I had to connect with phpmyadmin and change the password. Used MD5 as encryption.

No, I haven't enter any "&" char inside the password. Here below is what I get from query browser,
1. new create a user name "marco" with password "marco", the encrypted code is, "$1$HdqfgxyC$UNqOxCvH9QxffO8HQfGzm0"

2. login with marco and change the password to "marco", actually is the same password and the encrypted code changed to, "$1$xi]FIYHx$1EOrqy9OxPdSlhefo8jTu1".

no idea to the new generated password is.

You have to keep in mind that it is a salted encryption of the password, so the encrypted password won't be the same even if the unencrypted is.

Default Has anyone solved this yet?

I'm having the same problem. I'm on my third try with this now. I've had ISPConfig 3 working just fine on another server, and everything worked fine. I've been tearing my hair out with this now for two days. Without changing anything else, I change the password through the tools option, and I'm immediately locked out.

Please does anyone have any idea how to fix this?

Use phpmyadmin. Login as root.
Select database "dbispconfig".
Select table "sys_user".
Edit user "admin".
Select "MD5" in the drop down list for "passwort" and enter your wanted password.
Run the query.

OR

Use a terminal.
Code:
mysql -u root -p
UPDATE dbispconfig.sys_user SET passwort = MD5('YOURPASSWORDHERE') WHERE sys_user.username='admin';
QUIT
You should now be able to log in as admin.

Latest version, fresh install (Powered by ISPConfig 3.0.1.4 on Ubuntu 9.04 server 64bit and MySQL: 5.0.75-0ubuntu10.2).
I have the same problem: changed password in tools-> change password and then I cannot login.
I reset my password via SQL, but this is a bug.

I tested it several times now and it works fine for me. Does your password contain any special chars?
