See TWiki:Support/BulkRegistrationInternalError

When performing a Bulk Registration, all my users are created except one. That user name generates the following error:

TWiki detected an internal error - please check your TWiki logs and webserver logs for more information.

New password did not match existing password for this user

The user does not exist for this name. I've also tried to create the user through the normal Registration page to no avail.

Does this mean Apache thinks there is an account by this name and the password is invalid? Is there a way to simply tell the authentication engine to forget all about this username so I can re-create?

This should be fixed with a descriptive error message.

-- TWiki:Main/PeterThoeny - 31 May 2007

i rewrote this code not long ago. I have forgotten the bug number, and I'm not going to search for it now, but I believe this bug does not exist in MAIN any more. Leaving open for feedback in case someone can reproduce it (this code needs more testing anyway)


Well, I guess no-one can reproduce it then. Setting no-action.
