Error: Management password incorrect. (12, permasaged)

Problem here, fresh new board setup.. When I or anyone tries to post an drawn oekaki, a page that just says "Error: Management password incorrect." is displayed when the submit button is hit.
This is the submit button on the name/comment/message page.
Normal image posting and comment posting are working fine.

The oekaki script posts images as an admin post, so that it can add the HTML signature. However, it should read the correct password from by itself. What server is this running on?

That is definitely weird. Sadly I am away from my main computer over the holidays and can't do all that much bug hunting.

You might want to try one thing, and report back with what happens: Open in a text editor, find the function check_password(), and change the line:

make_error(S_WRONGPASS) if($admin ne $crypt);


make_error(S_WRONGPASS." $ENV{REMOTE_ADDR}") if($admin ne $crypt);

Then tell me what the new error message says.

Error: Management password incorrect.

Ah-hah. That explains it.

Open, find the crypt_password function there, and change the line

my $crypt=encode_base64(rc4(null_string(9),"a".(shift)."".SECRET),"");


my $crypt=encode_base64(rc4(null_string(9),"a".(shift)."".SECRET),"");

I need to figure out a way to get that to work better.
