Copying ante's comment from #2282

I'll try to explain this way, I have passwords allready stored in svn_pwd.


If I go to Trac account prefrences and try to change password for user ante (MD5) I receive error:
Error Old Password is incorrect.
Password change for user ante1 is OK (crypt).

The hashes look ok to me, but since I don't know your password I can't verify whether they're really correct. If you're using mod_python it may be this bug that causes corruption when calculating md5s:

You can confirm using the Python command line that the password you're using matches the hash:

$ python
>>> from acct_mgr.pwhash import *
>>> htpasswd('your-password', '$apr1$b3BoO...$PFRLvDJSCFcMDwCguKDBa.')

Try using tracd and changing your password. If it works there it's almost certainly that bug I mentioned above and you'll have to switch to FastCGI or proxying from your web server to tracd.

I'm using Trac 0.11rc2 with mod_python Password is 'avenns' & hashes do match.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

I've added a note to the AccountManagerPlugin wiki page about this, but that's all I can do since the bug is in an external library that I can't work around.
