How to fix a broken encryption
Fabrik's really useful encryption feature will break if you move your website. This is because when you rebuild your Joomla website the variable $secret gets recreated. Fabrik uses this variable to salt encryption. This article assumes you have a backup copy of the old configuration.php file.
Always make sure that you have a backup before you make changes to configuration.php.
Open /configuration.php for editing.
- Replace the $secret value for your old value.
Login as Super User
You should now be able to login as your Super User account.
- Reset your password.
- Force all users to reset their passwords when they next login.
- Reconnect Fabrik to the database.
