[SAC] Re: Re: [SoC] OSGEO Wiki account


is this a side effect of the anti spam measures?

A user is denied to use the forgot password functionality, see forwarded mail.

Oh, I got something like "Your IP doesn't have the permission to access the forgot password option", hence I couldn't do it.

My user name is Avyavkumar.
And the email ID I used was this only.
Thanks for your help.

    Hi Avyav,

    do you get any error message by trying the "forgot password"

    Maybe you signed up with a different email, you did not check?

    If you tell me your wiki user name, I can change the email address
    (I can't reset the PW though).

Not any of the measures I did set in place, as mine were all
on the TracSVN machine [1] which doesn't serve the wiki.

There isn't much information about the Wiki configuration [2],
may be time to add some, could you start a WikiVM page ?
