Upgrade to 1.9 - cannot log in

Topics: Support Request
Jul 11, 2009 at 8:49 AM

I've just dropped in dasBlog 1.9 on top of my old 1.8 installation (on a remote server, I think still running ASP.NET 1.1 so I'm reluctant to drop in 2.x for fear of breaking my site - the server is provided for free and the admins are very generous with their time, so I don't like to waste it getting them to fix my site whenever I break it). Everything's working apart from /Login.aspx. I type in username and password, hit OK (or Enter) and am returned to the same page, with the username filled in but the password field blank - no error/incorrect password message. The same thing happens with either of the sets of credentials in siteSecurity.config, and also with any other random credentials I care to try. Site is at http://ed.mvps.org.

site.config:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<SiteConfig xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns="urn:newtelligence-com:dasblog:config">

 (Just noticed that the comments that say they will be removed… haven't been.)

siteSecurity.config:
