WPMU 2.7 - Password corrupted on login after upgrade from 2.6.x (3 posts)

    I'm upgrading WPMU 2.6.x to WPMU 2.7 trunk (r1617) on a development server. When I make the switch, I can no longer log in to the back-end.

    Things I've tried (& most combinations of options below):

    • mass-deactivate plugins via WPMUPluginCommander (runs out of memory or time)
    • mv plugins/* plugins_disabled/;mv mu-plugins/* mu-plugins_disabled/
    • upgrade to WPMU 2.6.5 first

    I've manually inserted a new md5 password into the database, but it gets corrupted as soon as I login (logging in with a password *updates* the password with what appears to be a new salted? MD5 hash).

    NOTE: The password/auth may be salted, and I haven't figured out a workaround for that yet.

    NOTE2: The front end appears to work fine with all my plugins (except wordpress-admin-bar), I just can't log in to the back-end.

    BTW, on the login page, the link attached to the WordPress logo went to:

    instead of:

    In addition, when clicking Forgot Password the emails included similar links:

    It looks like I had an incorrect value for PATH_CURRENT_SITE. Fixing that resolved the PATH problem.

    define('PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '/' );

    ...and also appears to have resolved this login issue.

    For completeness:

    The user for whom the Forgot Password function was used is sent this email:

    Username: yyyyyyyyyyy
    Password: xxxxxxx

    Upon successful login, however, the user is connected to their 'primary' blog (
