Cannot log into textpattern.index

I have a textpattern site that is using txtp version 4.5 and the newest PHP version. I have tried the manual database password change as well as resetting by e-mail, however I am still unable to log into the site. Do I need to upgrade the textpattern version for this to work>? I have seen other posts with a similar issue, however they have theirs resolved by the database password change trick.

PLEASE HELP!!!

Re: Cannot log into textpattern.index

do you see any error messages when you try to login?

I would export the mysql db, and also backup the site.

I would also install the site on localhost and debug the access issue. just a thought…

I would do the backups as bici recommended and upgrade to the latest txp as it will make your site near future-proof.

Re: Cannot log into textpattern.index

Older versions of Textpattern up to about version 4.57 didn’t have support for newer versions of PHP above PHP v5.5 or 5.6 (I forget exactly which). The most recent version of txp supports PHP 7, and an upgrade will help. But, as the others have written, it’s good sense to make a backup of your files and database before updating so you can go back should it not go according to plan.

Re: Cannot log into textpattern.index

I am now having issues with upgrading my textpattern installation. I have done exactly what the instructions say, however I am getting multiple errors when I run the newer version.
