I am not able to log in on my MacBook Pro. There has been no problem to date.

I have gone through the proces of the 'forgotten user name' and 'forgotten password' many times, entered a new password each time after opening with the verification code, but then it takes me straight back to the log in screen and the whole process starts all over again with my not being able to log in.

The whirred thing is that I can log in on my iPad, but I don't want it there!

Can someone help please!

OK the database on a Mac is here: /users/username/Library/TheocBase/theocbase.sqlite

Open the sqlite file with DB Browser, downloaded form sqlitebrowser.org or other software that allows you to not only view, but actually modify the database.

Under the 2nd (browse data) tab, choose the table "settings" in the dropdown.

In the 'name' filter field, type 'md5psw' (or simply scroll until you find that field). In the 'value' field next to it, change 'true' to 'false'. You would have to type this.

To be sure, you may find the psw field as well, and remove  the entry under 'value'.

Close and save database. You should now be able to enter the database just tlike that. (if you check the other tables of the database, you will find out why I think the password protection is usually not a good idea)

No problem, I just needed to be sure you meant what I figured you meant, or I'd be telling you tales you don't want to hear...

So: do not use your forum login to get into TB.

Also, the local TB login is generally NOT an e-mail address (which you may have used to register).

With that out of the way, you may already be triggered into remembering what login and password you protected TB locally.

 If not, you should have or obtain a good sqlite browser (see my signature below for link to free software, for Mac as well) and locate the TB database. 

 It seems I can never remember where the database is on a Mac, besides I am not 100% sure how to edit the database.

I am pretty sure it is somewhere here on the forum. If I get to get to a desktop later today, I'll give you the exact steps. But it may be after tonight's meeting.... (It is 14.00h here right now)

Marc: I'm sorry for the confusion in my description of the problem.

I cannot log into TheocBase on my MacBook Pro. 

The rest of my message is accurate as regards what I have done with user name and password to attempt to log in.

Thanks for any help you can afford.

You cannot log in to your MacBook?! I do not want to be rude, but that sounds like a question for Apple... You probably mean something else, but what exactly?

Since it is a long time ago it was last mentioned, I'll repeat here for everyone who read this: there is your forum credentials (which enabled you to write something here), there is your TB registration (which no one probably remembers he ever did...), and there is your TB username/password to use TB locally (which I suspect, Michael, is where you are stuck, but I would need confirmation). Those are 3 different things.

You must never use username/password protection for your local TB. That is my not so very humble opinion, but if the database is not encrypted, anyone can just read that! If you did set TB to use username/password, though, and the database is not encrypted, it is fairly easy to get out.

But first let's clearly define the problem.
