This morning we inadvertently updated SOGO to the latest nightly build which updated it to version 4.1 from 4.0.xx

We now cannot successfully login to the SOGO interface. We can still login via the normal channels (imap, smtp, roundcube) but excahnge support and the SOGO web interface fail with incorrect password.

Any suggestions would be greatly welcome.

I forgot to mention the SOGO log has the following line:
<0x0x559cdc5bca60[SOGoDAVAuthenticator]> tried wrong password for user 'zoran@sparecreative.com'!

Just in case anybody else runs into this. The issue was that Sogo 4.1 nightly package replaced the original SOGO conf file with all settings commented out. No idea why they would set it this way.

We get the original from backups and restored it. Viola it now works beautifully.
