Thank you! So simple when you know!

I use a password manager, and there was a trailing space on my email address.

So when the system says "The password you entered is incorrect. Please go back and try again", it doesn't actually mean that. :-(

Thanks again.

I tried a 6-character password, and that didn't work either. I recall I tried an 8-character password some time ago.

Nils, thanks for looking into this.

I was able to log in using the temporary link that was emailed to me, and I changed my password. I used a 12-character alphanumeric password in case my previous password was too complex. Then I logged out, cleared the cookies, and tried to log in with the new password.

Unfortunately, the new password didn't work either, and I got the message "Password incorrect". So here I am logged in with my account key again...

Thanks for spotting this, should now be fixed.


The W3C validator still says the feed doesn't validate, but the report has changed from yesterday.

In practice, the feed is now working with my reader. Thanks.

The problem is still occurring on the new site, https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/.

My password isn't accepted, and I have to log in with my account key. I've just tried changing my password, and the new one isn't accepted either: I get the message "The password you entered is incorrect. Please go back and try again."

Can an administrator please investigate?

If you're not an administrator, and have the urge to offer suggestions, please! review the above thread first.

Obviously most people don't have the problem, or perhaps I'm alone in having the problem. Nevertheless, I continue to experience the problem as detailed in my original message.

My support assures me all looks OK on our side.
Have you tried again? Eric.

I tried again just now, and the problem is still there.

Bump.

I can attach the project to my BOINC client using my email address and password. But when I go to sign on on the Web site, it tells me "Password incorrect", and I have to sign on using my authenticator / account key.

Can this be fixed, please?

OK, I was assuming the preferences applied specifically to LHC, and overlooking the text at the top of the page: These apply to all BOINC projects in which you participate.

There seems a bit of a conflict between

On multiprocessors, use at most 1 processors

and

On multiprocessors, use at most 100% of the processors


It seems the latter setting wins (I'm using a two-core processor).

The former setting doesn't appear in my local BOINC manager settings (Version 7.2.42 (x64) under Linux, if it makes a difference).

Yes, I can log in using the temporary link emailed to me from http://lhcathomeclassic.cern.ch/sixtrack/get_passwd.php and, as I say, I can log in with my account key (authenticator) by entering it on the same page.

Yes, I'm starting from http://lhcathomeclassic.cern.ch/sixtrack/ (always going there by clicking on "Home page" in BOINC Manager.

I attached simply by using Tools / Add project or account manager in BOINC Manger. This points to http://lhcathomeclassic.cern.ch/sixtrack/.

I've just tried again, and I'm still unable to log in using a password, before or after changing it.

Hmm... Is this a problem with BOINC Manager rather than the project?

In my computing preferences I have
On multiprocessors, use at most 1 processors

But I have two work units in progress!

Actually, that's OK in my case: I was just checking.

Until a few years ago I ran the original lhcathome.cern.ch project, but then stopped. I recently decided to start again (on a different computer from before), so I got my BOINC manager to attach LHC@home. That was straightforward: I entered my email address and password, and I was attached, though there were no work units to process at the time.

However, I'm unable to log in to my account using my email address and password. When I try, I get the message "The password you entered is incorrect. Please go back and try again." I can log in with my account key, and if I change the password I get the message "Your password has been changed", but I still can't log in with the new password.

A secondary problem (now resolved, obviously) is that I couldn't post to the message board. I got the message "In order to create a new thread in Number crunching you must have a certain amount of credit. This is to prevent and protect against abuse of the system." This was despite the fact that I had credit of over 40,000 from a few years ago.
