    Where did you get the rawpassword column from? This is not a standard Joomla column in the #__users table. Did you add that in yourself?

The rawpassword field doesn't even exist in that table. In any case, you can solve the problem by just adding a rawpassword field (VARCHAR 255) to the #__users table.

  • yes, it does exist, it just has no value
