Description

Zach Nelson reported there was an issue to activate his account:

hash string Kv9aZuLOdu$tO3 doesn't match our record.

but the account was activated:

river:conf tao$ ldapsearch -x -h ldap.ecoinformatics.org -b o=unaffiliated,dc=ecoinformatics,dc=org uid=zach-nelson
  1. extended LDIF #
  2. LDAPv3
  3. base <o=unaffiliated,dc=ecoinformatics,dc=org> with scope subtree
  4. filter: uid=zach-nelson
  5. requesting: ALL #

We need figure out why the hash string didn't match and why the account was activated even though the hash string didn't match.

What is this at the end of the hash?

^X

"^x" is part of the hash string.

It seem user successfully activated his account:
Hi Jing,

I was able to activate by copying the url into my web browser. I am linked
to knb now and creating some data packages in morpho.

Thanks,
Zach

In the email we ask users to copy the url if he/she can't activate the account by click the link.

Maybe first time the user didn't copy the url fully?

I will close the bug.
