Support » Alpha/Beta/RC » WP 3.0 keep notifying about encryption key

  • Resolved Ainun Nazieb


    When I install WordPress 3.0 on my site, a notification appears on Dashboard that tells me to update my secret keys with new encryption.

    But when I’ve updated the wp-config file, the notification still appears on the Dashboard.

    Is it telling you to change your existing ones or add a new one? Did you add the new one right under the existing (i.e. in the same general section)? Did you end your line with a semi-colon?


    it says:
    Warning! WordPress encrypts user cookies, but you must add the following lines to /home/***/public_html/wp-config.php for it to be more secure.

    I’ve replaced the old default keys with the provided ones. And yes with semi colons, but the notification is still there.

    I’ve made some research, and I found that secret_salt_warning() function in wp-admin/include/ms.php line 646 will always notify since it doesn’t check the value of current secret keys.

    Should it be reported to trac?

    oops, sorry my bad 😀

    it seems i’ve replaced all existing keys instead of added the provided one 🙂
