Please don't do that again - when you bring up a new topic, please send a message to the list address anew, not as a reply. (However, when you actually reply to something relevant, do use the reply feature.) I ended up manually disconnecting your message from that unrelated thread before approving your postings (am a moderator). Please see below as it relates to your issue: On Wed, Mar 25, 2020 at 01:42:36PM -0700, sam harris wrote: > Thanks for the reply...I will put an attachment in here.Its a simple > command that use to work..It is a very simple password but can not crack it > anymore.My password is "peach" , very straight forward but i keep getting > the "error in john.config on line one" I have deleted John and reloaded it > and works but only till I get another john.config error.
