User Transfer | Forum

We The People United We Stand

I transferred the users from one Ox-wall to another via  PHP Admin.  

Now they cannot use their password and it does not show them in the user roles section.

however, I do see them in the user list page and I can pull them up on the website.

What step did I miss?

Did you only transfere the base_user table?

You need the ow_base_authorization_role and specialy the ow_base_authorization_user_role table alswell

No, that's not it. You have to open the file /ow_includes/config.php from the origeb website and copy the line that says

define('OW_PASSWORD_SALT', '52b234567891ba6');

(The number will be different)

and replace the one on the new website.

The passwords are encoded with this key number which is assigned new and different for each installation

Ok I figured it out.  

I originally exported the video sql as data only when I needed the complete file.

Now i imported the complete sql file.  

And now it works great
