Infolog desktop client and Egroupware 1.8004

Filed under: Egroupware — Raging Goblin @ 16:50

I recently upgraded my Egroupware installation to version 1.8004 and noticed my Infolog desktop client did not function anymore. After a little research I found out that Egroupware upgraded the way passwords are stored in the database. Infolog desktop client is only capable of calculating md5 hashes and send these to the server. The program is still usable but the passwords should be stored as md5 hashes instead of the improved crypted password Egroupware is using nowadays. To do this go to http://yourserver/egroupware/setup and edit the current configuration. Set the encryption type of your passwords to md5 and remove other types from the allowed migration types. Now all users should store their passwords again to make Egroupware store them as md5 hash. I plan to support the improved encryption types egroupware uses in future releases.
