    Hi,
    I upgraded my sitefinity project from 5.0 to 5.1. But, after that, I am
    unable to login to the cms. When I give an existing username to retrieve 
    the password, it says cannot retrieve hashed passwords.

    How can I resolve this issue.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    You can go in database in table sf_users, set NULL on salt field, set 0 the password_format field, in passwd write the clear password(e.g. password), look in "is_locked_out" field if is 0, if not change it and that's it.
    I hope that this will help you.
