Password reset

Since we have move to the new faster server you will have to reset your password.

Your security is taken very serious at UKLocksport and as such all passwords are encrypted in our database making it impossible even for us to see your password, meaning as we move those encrypted passwords they will no longer work on the new database.

Please try the automated system,

user/forgot_password


If it doesnt work then please email me to have your password reset manually, just send an email to pickwizard@uklocksport.co.uk or pickwizard@live.co.uk

Please send from your email account linked to your uklocksport account, with your username, I will then setup a temporary password allowing you to login and then set your own password again.

The new password is then stored on our secure database in an encrypted one way hash form making it impossible to decrypt even if the database is compromised.

Sorry for the inconvenience :welc:

The password reset worked fine and I cleared cookies to make it work. I can happily log into the new server.

I noticed that I have multiple login keys. I mostly look at this site on my mobile phone. I was wondering, if our IP address has been changed the site then requires us to have a new login key and that is why we need to login again. Not sure if it's correct but that is my theory, hope this helps.

I agree @TrippyBeamer. Every time I switch from wifi to 4g I need to login again. And even if I go upstairs, where I've set up a second router with the same ssid and password, so my phone automatically switches to the strongest signal but it now requires to login to the forum again.

Works perfectly for me now, thank you :c017:

My IP theory was a red herring after all.

@Pickwizard Are you using a mixture of uklocksport.co.uk and www.uklockpickers.co.uk, maybe in redirects? That would explain why you need the full stop in front of your domain....

we used to, but since the move the new server gives us the option to automatically change those setting for us instead of me changing the .htaccess file.

The new server monitors our site and gives suggestions of how to make it more secure and faster, most are free but some do just wan tus to buy the extensions.

Here's a good site to test your SSL security:

https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/index.html

It also provides suggestions to improve. You can do a similar scan on internal networks with nmap.
