Hello.  I just installed Mahara on my webserver and everything is going well except that no matter what I chance my sitewide password salt to I still get the error message.  I have tried all types of combinations, pressed save and still will not work.  Here is my current config.php section.  What am I missing?

Many thanks!

// Set this to enable a secondary hash that is only present in the config file
// $cfg->passwordsaltmain = 'Mary Had a Little Lamb'; // When changing the salt (or disabling it), you will need to set the current salt as an alternate salt // There are up to 20 alternate salts //$cfg->passwordsaltalt1 = 'Hot Cross Buns 1 a Penny';

Hi Chris,

New to programming, are you?

You need to uncomment the line that reads \$cfg->passwordsaltmain. The "//" means the line is a comment, and is not actually executed. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comment_%28computer_programming%29#End-of-line

Cheers,

Aaron
