Upgrade from 2.4.x to 2.5 and passwords no longer work
 

just upgraded from the above and my passwords no longer work (for any account)

I was able to get around this by generating a new md5 hash string and manually replacing it for the user in the database. After the first login, it converted to the new format.

What would prevent a user from not logging in after upgrade?

The only thing I can think of is that you created a new config.php and did not copy your $CFG->passwordsaltmain from your old config.php.

Thank you, the salts didn't match!
