Copied WordPress to new URL SQRL says "identity is not associated with any account"

  • SpinRite v6.1 Release #3
    The 3rd release of SpinRite v6.1 is published and may be obtained by all SpinRite v6.0 owners at the SpinRite v6.1 Pre-Release page. (SpinRite will shortly be officially updated to v6.1 so this page will be renamed.) The primary new feature, and the reason for this release, was the discovery of memory problems in some systems that were affecting SpinRite's operation. So SpinRite now incorporates a built-in test of the system's memory. For the full story, please see this page in the "Pre-Release Announcements & Feedback" forum.

  • BootAble – FreeDOS boot testing freeware

    To obtain direct, low-level access to a system's mass storage drives, SpinRite runs under a GRC-customized version of FreeDOS which has been modified to add compatibility with all file systems. In order to run SpinRite it must first be possible to boot FreeDOS.

    GRC's “BootAble” freeware allows anyone to easily create BIOS-bootable media in order to workout and confirm the details of getting a machine to boot FreeDOS through a BIOS. Once the means of doing that has been determined, the media created by SpinRite can be booted and run in the same way.

    The participants here, who have taken the time to share their knowledge and experience, their successes and some frustrations with booting their computers into FreeDOS, have created a valuable knowledgebase which will benefit everyone who follows.

    You may click on the image to the right to obtain your own copy of BootAble. Then use the knowledge and experience documented here to boot your computer(s) into FreeDOS. And please do not hesitate to ask questions – nowhere else can better answers be found.

    (You may permanently close this reminder with the 'X' in the upper right.)

Copied my WordPress to another server that don't use as much power. Change the URL name too.

Installed SQRL plugin and I can't log in to it. It says "The site is not allowing new registrations and your SQRL identity is not associated with any account."

How can I fix this?

logged on to phpmyadmin and searched for sqrl and found 3 big like random numbers in wp_usermeta copy and deleted each on 1 at a time and tested logging in my WordPress but all 3 times got the same error.

I guess it's some place in the database?

If you have changed the URL, you will have a different SQRL identity on the new site.

In simple terms, SQRL takes the website URL, manipulates it with your SQRL secret data, and produces an answer. This answer is stored in the site as your SQRL ID.

Depending which SQRL server code you are using, there may be other places where SQRL login is set in the user record on the site. There may be a flag to reset for example to allow you to associate a new SQRL ID with your login.
