Update @ 1400Z
I’ve got a lot to share this time around so I hope I can provide at least temporary relief from this issue.
To the best of my testing, pilots are able to log in under the following circumstances:
- phpVMS is running the CrewCenter skin. This is the one I show you how to set up in my tutorial here.
- When logging in, you must tick the remember me box.
- I’ve tested this as an admin only, but it should (key word should not be any different for normal users)
The error message doesn’t disappear but it will allow you to log in. Not entirely sure why, but a workaround is a workaround, right?
Pilot Data & cPanel Access
No pilot data (accounts, passwords, PIREPs, etc) will be compromised as a result of this. Your cPanel access will also remain.
This is a host issue. Moving to a paid host is the best option. I won’t be answering any messages or replies on how to do this, but you don’t have to install fresh. You can choose to however, as you can import pilot data via the admin panel. You can also access old pilot data on the phpVMS admin panel if you are able to log in using the method described above.
If you are looking to go down the route of paid hosting, I highly recommend Hostinger. Their pricing is very competitive and with some (possibly all, memory is not its best at 12am 😬) plans you get a free domain. They also do offers very frequently, so a quick Google will likely find you a promo code to make it cheaper.
Just to be clear, this change on InfinityFree’s side improves security. You are at no more risk now than you were before. If anything, your site is more secure, error message and login issues aside.
