"Login Failed" when loggin in to the application
« on: January 08, 2015, 01:10:32 PM »
Hello,

I have successfully installed Roundcube and was able to send a test email via SMTP and validate the IMAP login from the installer page.

However, now that I try logging in with the same credentials the login page is returning a "Login failed" error message.  I have set auto_create_user to true.

The error log shows:

Code: [Select]
[08-Jan-2015 17:54:46 +0000]: IMAP Error: Login failed for admin@realwpsite.com from 85.18.106.220. AUTHENTICATE PLAIN: Authentication failed. in /usr/share/roundcube/program/lib/Roundcube/rcube_imap.php on line 184 (POST /?_task=login?_task=login&_action=login)
I have checked around the web for a solution and i have found some discussions here and there. For example i have found a discussion here on the forums http://www.roundcubeforum.net/index.php?topic=10606.0 but i cannot find the main.inc.php inside my config folder i have 4 files as follows: config.inc.php, defaults.inc.php, mimetypes.php and config.inc.php.sample

I have already use it several times but now for dunno what reason i cannot login even if i insert the right credentials.

I really hope to get a solution to this.

Thank you in advance.

main.inc.php is for older versions. The new file is config.inc.php which combines the non-default settings from both of the older config files (main.inc.php and db.inc.php). Change your auth type in config.inc.php.

Hello thanks for your answer.

I do not have any section for the auth type in my config.inc.php

I did found it in defaults.inc.php and copied over the block to config. Changed to LOGIN and it works thanks you very much
