Lee, I did two separate installs. The first was for a client that I set up QP earlier. I started to upgrade his installation but decided that I wanted to move him to a new database; my provider limits the size of a database but has upgraded the limit on the size but only for new databases. Since my client had not used the site there was no data to lose. I had already loaded the files to the server for upgrading but stopped. I deleted the config file, created a new database and then started the installation as a fresh install. It went smooth, no problems at all. I created my admin account per normal. Then I worked to include the template I had created for his site to the new install adding the widgets needed for the template. Since he will be using TinyMCE to compose posts, I upgraded to the latest release with the intent that he could use the new html5 figure. The other thing I did was that I installed ZenPhoto for him to use as a photo gallery (I know that we worked on doing that with QP but I wanted something more feature rich). I went into the settings for the blog and set the media folder to use the one for the ZenPhoto albums so that he can use any photo he uploads to his gallery in a blog post using the easy add or attach image that we now have. Last night I went in to check the operation of TinyMCE. I had not been to my user profile since setting up QP. To check TinyMCE, I needed to turn it on in my user profile so I went to my user profile and turned on TinyMCE (and decided to change the admin template); I did not give any notice to the email field. When I went to click save so I could then go see about TinyMCE, I got the flag that I had entered an invalid email address. To my surprise I saw my password there. I don't recall doing anything directly in the database; no need to change anything there directly on a fresh install; I only go to the database directly when I have something to correct that can not be done through the admin backend and it would not have been to change my email address; I would use the backend to do that.
The second install was on a different server on a different host for a colleague that is a WordPress fanatic to see the app. He wants to develop a social framework where we can pull in different solutions; such as using QP as the blogging platform; although he is set on WordPress. So I installed QP from a fresh install with demo content so he could get a good feel for QP. I checked last night and that install had the email address in the email address field.
As I said, this incident might be a once in a thousand year one and it could be that the error happened at the MySQL server and not anything to do with QP. It just caught me by surprise and changing the email address field worked and my password still worked.
