Heads Up: Cannot login as horde admin anymore?

Please be careful: Horde has introduced a new default setting $conf[‘auth’][‘lowercase’] which acts like the auth hook used to do.

This might lead to issues when your default admin account is named “Administrator”.

It is actually a very useful setting. It ensures that any prefs and other profiles also work with case-insensitive backends regardless of how you type the user name.

How to fix?

a) Lowercase all admin names in your $conf[‘auth’][‘admin’] settings in conf.php

b) disable $conf[‘auth’][‘lowercase’] by setting it to false value.
