forgotpassword not working

So, I am finding neither of these forgot password pages work: http://66.39.111.101/forgotpassword.php, http://66.39.111.101/admin/forgotpassword2.php
They both say invalid info when I put in my email address. Php display errors shows no issues. It just doesn't accept security code or answer.

BTW, you said you could allow a password reset by using MD5, but I didn't see that in server behavior for the email Where do you set that option?

When you run the wizard, you can specify field types on the second page including encryption. If you add password field encryption it changes the way the forgot password page is generated.

Yes, I saw there are 2 encryption methods, but wasn't sure which one is the MD5 . However do I need to run the wizard again to get the forgotten passwords to work? Since they don't work on either location, I'm not sure that will fix anything.

I ran the wizard a third time with new page names: forgot.php and log.php Still gives the same error: Invalid information, please check your entries and try again

Yes, you would have to run it again since it creates much different code for encrypted passwords. I'd rather not debug it if you are just going to have to run it again with md5 and overwrite that page anyway.

It didn't make any difference in the forgot password I'm done for now.

I had to add this before the <!doctype> tag:

<?php
@session_start();
?>

That seems to have fixed the problem.
