Error after LinuxMint 19.3 Updated

So…Rand the regular update on LinuxMint 19.3 - and now server is giving the following error when trying to enter the ‘admin’ account. Other accounts (users) are fine.

FATAL ERROR: crypt() function is not working correctly in OpenEMR

OpenEMR Version
I’m using OpenEMR version Version Number: v5.0.2 (1) (though the icon says this - I believe we are on the first rendition or second rendition of 7)


Operating System
LinuxMint 19.3

Did you check the logs? No.
Was there anything pertinent in them?
Please paste them here (surround with three backticks (```) for readability.
You can also turn on User Debugging under Administration->Globals->Logging User Debugging Options=>All

Recommend upgrading your version of OpenEMR to be compatible with the server’s php/mariadb version. You may need professional help to get all the dependencies in order.

and "users_secure mysql " might be found where?

oh sorry @mschap , didn’t see that your other users are fine,

get to a mysql/mariadb prompt and try running this to reset the admin password to pass

UPDATE `users_secure` SET `password` = '$2a$05$MKtnxYsfFPlb2mOW7Qzq2Oz61S26s5E80Yd60lKdX4Wy3PBdEufNu' WHERE `username` = 'admin';

Okay it is v5.0.2 (1) that I am running.

I cannot find mysql/mariadb nor can I find users_secure mysql. Pretend that this is all foreign to me – not that far off :wink:

how do I get to a myqul/maridb promt? thank-you.
