When I had that problem, I was on the page where you can edit the network.  I navigated away from that screen (without hitting save) and all that I can surmise that happened is some how the value of the "Authenticator Parameter" field was cleared and that change was saved.  Essentially what happens is your network no longer knows where to send authentication requests.  I found this by going in to PostgreSQL and doing a select statement on the Network table to reveiw the parameters.  I found this field to be empty when it shouldn't have been.  I then issued an update sql statement to replace that value with the correct value.  Since I'm using local authentication and I'm using the original "default-network", "default-network" was the value I had to replace.  If you're not using the default network, then you need to enter the network ID or LDAP parameters if you're authenticating to LDAP.  That will be specific to your implementation.

I have much the same problem as Dave Lamb, I am running wifidog on a VMWARE 
image with Debian Lenny:
Linux web02 2.6.26-2-686 #1 SMP Sun Jun 21 04:57:38 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux

It was all working fine until I logged out from admin  to simulate a new 
user creating a free account.
I created a new user and was able to log in without a problem.
I logged out as the new user and when I came to log back in as admin and I 
get 'unknown user name or password'. (even if I use the email address)
I do not have a problem logging in as the new user.

I also looked at the user table in postgres and that looks OK, I even 
updated the admin password but still no luck.

I has happened to me a few times and I have just recovered from a snapshot. 
But this will not be ok in a live environment so I need a solution to this.

In the install I used
postgres 8.3
jpgraph-1.22 -> jpgraph-1.22.1
PHPMailer_v2.0.0 -> PHPMailer_v2.1
You can see my history after a clean standard install of Debian Lenny at 
Notes: Line 3, I setup a static IP, Line 34 see vhost file at end of History 
(not sure about  <Directory /var/www/wifidog-auth/wifidog/>). I also did not 
see a rewrite at aprox line 17 as is in the howto

Is there a clean install as a vmware image that I can download from 
anywhere/anyone or
can everyone please list
1) what OS you are using,
2) what ver of Postgres you use
3) if you use any upgraded packages (i.e.  PHPMailer_v2.1)

Any help would be much appreciated.

Kind Regards
Stephen Mackay
