Bug ID: #1637

Account unlock links may not work on some systems

Status:Closed

LowImpactHigh
Category:Functionality (Server Side)
MIDAS Versions Affected:4.00 - 4.06
Browsers Affected:Microsoft Internet Explorer Microsoft Edge Mozilla Firefox Google Chrome Apple Safari Opera
Details:If a user account becomes automatically suspended/locked due to excessive login failures, the "unlock link" sent in an email to the account holder may not unlock their account access on some server setups.

This can occur if a server's primary "directory index" isn't set to "index.pl".
Symptoms:Clicking an account unlock link in an email takes you straight to your MIDAS login screen with no notification that your account has been re-enabled.
Workaround:As a temporary workaround, copy & paste the link from the email into your browser's address bar, but insert "index.pl" before the "?authorize" part, before pressing enter/clicking "Go".

For a more robust solution, consider configuring the MIDAS directory on your server to have "index.pl" as the primary Directory Index.

On Apache servers, this is usually a simple case of creating/editing the folder's .htaccess file to include the line:
DirectoryIndex index.pl
Resolution:Fixed for v4.07
