Logging in into Oracc for the first time

If you're trying and failing to login to your Oracc project for the first time since the move, the problem might have one or more of the following causes:

  1. All project passwords were reset to the default on the move. Try logging in with the default (if you don't know what I mean, please email me) and then change your password to something more secure, by typing passwd at the prompt and then following the instructions. Your new password should mix uppercase and lowercase letters, and use non-letter characters too.
  2. If you are running Win32Emacs, you need to trash your old atf-mode files before you install the new ones: see here.
  3. Before you can use Emacs for project work, you will need to initialise the secure connection by following the instructions here.
If these three solutions fail, email me. (Steve is away until August now.)
