Upgrade from BE 1.5 to 2.0 with SQL Server

I upgraded to BE 2.0, from BE 1.5 and use SQL Server as my datasource. I ran the upgrade script for 1.5 to 1.6, then I ran the upgrade script for 1.6 to 2.0.

My app runs and my existing data shows up, but none of the authors show up anymore in the authors list and I can no longer login. It says my password is incorrect.

Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

I would clear the password out -- leaving it so it's an empty string.  If you're using the default XML storage, then you would want the Password in users.xml (in App_Data) to look like:

<Password></Password>

After making this change, restart the blog by making any change to the web.config file (add a space, etc), and then you should be able to login using the default password of "admin" without the quotes.
