I think it was successful!

Upgraded with no problem. I didn't realize they were maintenance releases which of course are usually simple.

When I add the code to register.php I get:

Code: [Select]
Array ( [1] => Array ( [email] => [lang] => english ) [8] => Array ( [email] => [lang] => english ) [305] => Array ( [email] => [lang] => english ) )
When I do the MySQL query it's the same (see attachment).

No sign of the old Admin's "maildrop99@" email address!


Any clue what was overwritten that cleaned it up? Just curious.

And THANKS A MILLION for working through this with me. The old Admin will be very happy....

There are no changes from cpg1.5.20 to cpg1.5.42 regarding the admin detection in register.php, it's exactly the same code. Glad that it works now.

Only thing I can think of was a modification to the old source... If you still have it - compare old/new register.php as André said there were no changes in that area at least...

When I do an upgrade of an unknown gallery - I download a clean copy of the version in use - and compare to what is running to see if there are any changes.  Most of the time works well... sometimes something changed carriage returns and makes it ugly... but helps me determine if there were any customizations.  WinMerge is an example of a tool to do that with.
