I can't login into my Drupal anymore and I'm not sure why. I've got the BOTCHA Spam Prevention module and commerce (enabled with anonymous checkout). Now my login looks like this: Login without username I can't create a new user: "the field username is required" and I can't request my password (there is no username/email field).

I repaired the session table already. Tried several browsers and computers and the admin account has the User ID 1.

Don't know how I can get back into my Drupal :-S Any ideas?

Thanks, Chris

You could try to disable the module that causing the problem. There are multiple ways of doing that.

Using Drush

drush dis modulename

Database hack

In the system table find the module and set its status to 0

UPDATE {system} SET status=0 WHERE name='modulename'

  • I installed drush and disable spamicide. That was the mean one which blew my login.
