What did you do? Installed New instance of Umbraco 7.5.4, and received a Database login error after the insulation process started. The SQL password contained the special character ' < ' Which you'd expect to get converted to '<' in the web.config connection string, but it was converted to ' < '
looks like its doing special character conversions twice, First time taking < to < and then at some point the & is getting converted again.
I've just recreated this following a comment in the forum.
https://our.umbraco.org/forum/umbraco-7/using-umbraco-7/50407-Login-failed-for-user-in-Umbraco-7#comment-279950 It's the same for ampersands &
The webconfig has the special chars html encoded. Database=UmbracoV722;user id=sa-test;password='test&test'
Screenshot of error.
