I'm obviously missing something here.
I'm working on a site on my local machine. The site has just one user in it. This user has admin rights. I tried to logon with the username and password and I was pretty sure the correct ones, but I couldn't login. I thought it must be a typo or I just forgot the password.
So I searched how to reset the password and followed the instructions I found here: http://www.sitefinity.com/help/developer-manual/resetting-administrator-password.html
I tried them both but I still can't login.
I looked into the table telerik_Users and I noticed the # of failed password attempts does not increase. I put a trace on the database and tried to login. The trace showed me the following procedure is called:
exec telerik_GetUserByName @P_UserName=N'',@P_Application='1ABC2CE9-B951-442B-A148-9349B964799D'
The wierd thing is the username parameter is empty. How come? When I put an extra line in this SP wich sets the parameter to the username first, I still can not login but the failed password attempt number increases now.
Just before I installed windows 7 on my workstation, I installed sitefinity on Vista. I think I had the same issue back then as well. So obviously I mess up the installation one way or another, but I can't think of anything that might cause this behaviour.
I use version 3.7 on windows 7.
