Hello Community,

I’ve a problem; I got a ready 1.7.0.2 installation but without my crypt key. So, my question is:

How can I change my Crypt Key after the installation is completed ?

I got no search results everywhere with this “special” question. I know it is in the local.xml file,
but nobody knows how to change them after a installation has completed.

Should I reinstall the whole shop? What is the best way to change the key?
I can change the password with “Forgot my password” to get a new encrypted pw…

Has anybody experience with that part or problem ?

Thanks in advance.

Tyveris.

Hello,

Please, read the following information carefully:
PayPal, Authorize.net and similar transaction keys and passwords are additionally secured with this key via hash & salt method (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salt_(cryptography)). With this in mind, if you forgot old transaction key, there is no other way to solve this issue than re-saving those access data from Magento administration interfaces.
It means that you can’t change it or get the access to the data with another key. The only way is re-installation of Magento or you can use the current key.
