Ok, so this is strange. I'm still getting October up and running. I have a test site up and it's worked fine for two days. I just attempted to pull it up and log into the backend but while the site appears fine, I am getting the following error when I try to log in:

A user was found to match all plain text credentials however hashed credential "password" did not match.

So.... how does one fix this? I have changed absolutely nothing with any sort of hashing or back end access. A little help, please?

We've encountered the exact same issue several times recently. Is this a known issue, and is there a workaround? Thanks

Is there a solution to this problem? I cannot login to the backend now.

Yep, just happened to me!

In my case the bug occurred after changing the password for the backend admin of an older site that was updated to a more recent version a little while ago. Not the first time either, this happened multiple times before on other sites. Strange.

Did you try flushing any cookie to see if that makes a difference?

It would be nice to identify what events are triggering this bug. The more details the better.

That is a good tip! Too late now :(

Whatever is causing this is hiding it's tracks...... it's like the 007 of bugs.

By the way,

I usually solve this by copy/pasting the password hash of a password I know directly into the database.
