Moodle 1.8
 
Hello. I just tried to upgrade a test server from Moodle 1.7 to Moodle 1.8 beta and realized that I was locked out of all accounts. Even my main admin account had an invalid login. Does Moodle 1.8 have a different database scheme in terms of users and permissions so I can't import an SQL dump from Moodle 1.7 into the database?

Hi,

Try to go directly to www.yoursite.edu/admin for a database upgrade first. The dbs are different and you can not use 1.8 log in mechanism on 1.7 databases.

Cheers,

Yu

Thanks! That fixed it. I tried to login as admin instead of going directly to the admin page.
