Password Not Allowed

Post by tutshbaby1 » Wed Dec 18, 2019 3:40 pm

I am trying to publish an update to my web site. I get these errors during publication: Internet Exception Error 12031 Details: The connection with the server was reset; also: Internet Exception Error 12014 Details: The password was not allowed.

I am running version 12.2.1. Also, I cannot log in when using my WYSIWYG Web Builder to check my password.

WYSIWYG Web Builder does not verify your password. This is an error message from the server.
If you did not change anything yourself, then this is most likely an issue on the server side.

Note that WWB 12.2.1 is no longer supported.
