General Error (between yesterday and today)

Post by Lèyon di li Neûris′ »

Coming here during an insomnia this night, I saw that:
Return to index page
General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysqli ]

Access denied for user 'arnout'@'localhost' (using password: YES) [1045]

An sql error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact an administrator if this problem persists.

Seriously? phpBB desplays a password when there's an SQL error?
And seriously, someone choose “YES” as password?
By the way, if it's not already done, I highly encourage you to change that password and to find out how not to display any password in this case.
Excuse my not so bad imperialist language.

That was not the password :) It was just a config.

A password in a system like this is not saved in clear text either but encrypted. The online system does not even know the correct passwords itself.

So, instead of something like: “using password: TRUE”, they wrote: “using password YES”, that is misleading.
