If I change the SITE_KEY in civicrm.settings.php, what might stop working as a result?


  • Will checksums emailed to contacts last week still be valid?

  1. Change all cron jobs and scripts that use the site key for authentication

  2. Reenter any passwords, specifically payment processors and mail/sms passwords

  3. All prior checksums sent in the last 7 days (if that value has not been changed), will no longer work

A grep for SITE_KEY in the code base will uncover a few more things :)
