RESOLVED appearantly I was truncating my passwords as I set the column size for password too low
Yesterday I started using the PHP framework Laravel and I am very happy with it, except for one small part, this part being the standard login provided by the framework.
I created a new project in Netbeans and placed it in my xampp htdocs folder so I could access the site from a browser immediately.
I used the commands
composer create-project laravel/laravel --prefer-dist cd laravel composer install
This all seems to work fine, I created a database using the migrations that came with the clean install of laravel and registered a user which worked without a hitch.
However when I now try to log in it gives me the error message
Whoops! There were some problems with your input. -These credentials do not match our records.
I thought it might have been something I changed in the routes so it wasn't using the correct routes to the login post so I created a project from scratch and changed nothing except my database settings in the .env file but it still gives me the same message.
If anyone could give me some hints as to where in the code the problem could be I would be very grateful
