> I cant even use the temp pass provided.
Are you sure you have the right plugin? The wordpress.org version of this plugin does not have a ‘temporary password’ feature.
Excuse me. Its called the “Current one-time password.”
Im positive this is yours. I see the two Daves along side the version number.
ANother point I may be confused on is time. I have my WP and server set to UTC time. Both times reflect the same in the settings. But I personally am in central time.
This seems fine to me, but could I be wrong? How would my users work this out if they are all in different time zones?
OK, the current OTP code, I follow. Is the same code shown in your OTP app (e.g. Google Authenticator, or whatever you are using)?
Can you post a screenshot of the part of the screen that states the current time? (Use https://snag.gy if it helps).
No. The Google auth app is not the same code as the one displayed in WP. Iv tested many times and never was able to make them match.
The screenshot shows a time about 7 minutes of about before the time you posted the link to it…. which actually makes it at least a minute before I asked about posting the screenshot. So it looks like your server time is a few minutes out?
The TOTP protocol relies on accurate time. By default, the plugin checks back by about a couple of minutes (if I remember correctly).
It sounds like you run the server yourself? Run this command as root:
If that tells you that the
ntpdate command is not found, then it’ll need installing. The command to install it will depend on your operating system (e.g. on CentOS it is
yum install ntpdate).
I see now. Its a 4 minute difference to be more accurate. I hadnt noticed that yet.
Ill give those commands a run in the morning and see if that solves it. That makes sense it would rectify this matter. Thanks for helping out. Ill holler tomorrow if I still get stuck.
Again, thank you.
