00454: Migration: Undesired upload password introduced

Description: Migrating from 1.0.14 to 2.0beta37, an upload password is required in the new wiki where none was required in the old wiki.

All groups seem to be affected.

The Group Attributes indicate the the upload password is (set by site) ****.

I'm unaware of having set any upload password at all, though.

Specifically, I have not included the line

 $DefaultPasswords['upload'] = crypt('secret');

in my config.php.

What's the proper way to get password-free uploads in the groups not set up to require a group-specific password?

Changing config.php to include:

 $DefaultPasswords['upload'] = crypt('');

as I did in PmWiki 1 doesn't clear the upload password either.

PmWiki locks uploading site-wide by default. The way to remove PmWiki's default site-wide upload password is to use

   $DefaultPasswords['upload'] = '';


Thanks! :-)

The problem (besides a typo or two) apparently was that I had used:

 $DefaultPasswords['upload'] = crypt('');
