I just updated my live Drupal install and now I receive the following notice in the admin:
Found one invalid variable
When I go to
/admin/reports/variablecheck it shows that the variable
drupal_private_key is invalid.
Is it safe to delete this key? Will it autogenerate? What does this key affect? Will I have to edit my cron to use a new key?
I tried using Google and this site but nothing seems to say what this key is or if it's okay to delete it. I have experienced this issue before a year ago but cannot remember the solution. I'm sure I am not the first person to experience this but intrigued I couldn't find a solution online.
Thanks for any insight on this issue.
It appears the last time I had this issue I added the key to the settings file, including a drupal hash salt variable (see this post). Everything was working fine until the update. This issue does not exist on DEV or STAGE, only on PROD
