[Resolved] $wp_default_secret_key mismatching with AUTH_KEY

  • Hi, I upgraded my cforms plugin and installed the last version of the qtranslate plugin and now I get this:

    Your $wp_default_secret_key is mismatchting with your AUTH_KEY. This might cause you not to be able to login anymore.

    (by the way mismatching is mispelled).

    I have no idead at all on how to fix this. HELP! 🙁

  • FIXED! I just changed the auth_key on config.php and everywhing words fine now.

    Was pretty simple :S

    No luck here. Same error, but changing of AUTH_KEY doesn’t help. In fact I use official key generator at: http://api.wordpress.org/secret-key/1.1/.

    I have qtranslate too. What’s that $wp_default_secret_key variable anyway?

    Help appreciated.

    same problem here 🙁

    @arbuzz

    I found same problem. Then I delete qtranslate and go to log in page. It works.

    Then re-upload the qtranslate.

    same problem,

    new auth hey does not work
    removing qtranslate (2.2.1) does work
    reinstalling it (re uploading) does not work

    login is still possible, but the error-message sucks 🙂

    same problem;
    new auth hey does not work
    removing qtranslate (2.2.1) does work

    Guys,

    I fixed the problem:

    Open your wp-settings.php and just surf to the place where $wp_default_secret_key can be filled in. Take your AUTH_KEY from the wp-config.php and paste it in here. Your problem should be solved.

    I know, it is not a pretty solution, but it works for me.

    I did not remove qtranslate or anything.

    Search for the qtranslate-core.php in the plugins folder, and delete from line 106 to line 110:

    // Check for WP Secret Key Missmatch
    if($wp_default_secret_key != AUTH_KEY) {
    global $error;
    $error = __(‘Your $wp_default_secret_key is mismatchting with your AUTH_KEY. This might cause you not to be able to login anymore.’,’qtranslate’);
    }

    That’s what’s causing the problem.

    It is a security check, not a problem. So if you want to stay safe, use my method.

    A simple plugin making that kind of security checks. Unnecesary.
    A simple plugin not letting a user login on his blog. (n)

    not really unnecesary, as it is trying to help users with these kind of problems. try solving this problem if you can’t login anymore.

    see http://www.qianqin.de/qtranslate/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=308&p=1450#p1450

    Same problem. I tried to change the Keys. But this did’t help.
    Login is possible in the default language but not in any other language.

    And I don’t have php-files in my language folder. Only *.po and *.mo files.

    Anybody here who solved this problem?

    thx in advance.
