Hah, tried it with another browser (Edge) and there it worked. On Opera it still does not…
Logged in with Edge with default user/password (admin/adminadmin) after removing user and password lines from config + restart. Then adjusted both in web UI and compared to how we add it in dietpi-software: Exactly the same!
So it seems to be a browser specific issue. Please verify that this is the case for you as well (e.g. it works with Microsoft Edge). Then we need to report to qBittorrent devs.
No issue on Buster systems, so it is resolved with current qBitTorrent versions. Will report this to the Debian bug tracker, perhaps it is reason enough to update the version in Stretch repo. Otherwise we probably need to ship custom compiled binaries.
I installed qbittorrent today and tried to login with Chrome, Edge and Firefox all give a warning ‘username and/or password incorrect’ after sometime my ip get banned. I used
admin - adminadmin,
qbittorrent - dietpi,
qbittorrent - adminadmin,
qbittorrent - myglobalpassword
well… In my installation there was no configuration file, and the login didn’t work.
So I’ve taken the following steps to make it work:
1.- Connect by SSH to your device.
The default user name and password will now appear, and the service will be running on port 8080. Access to your IP:8080, with the credentials that qbitorrent has indicated, login and change the password from the configuration.
Now you can kill the qbitorrent-nox service (Ctrl+C) and restart the device services:
I’ll retest a fresh install later, currently I can’t see a reason why this fails, besides the mentioned Chromium login issue on Stretch systems.
Note that this must be executed as user qbittorrent, which is what the service runs as, so:
sudo -u qbittorrent qbittorrent-nox default should be it, if the above file indeed was not created as expected.
Thanks! Just installed the latest today and this is still an issue, after reading all the other threads I found this suggestion. It was the only thing that worked to let me in though the webui. Much appreciated!
I’ve been fighting with this problem for a while now and finally yesterday after inspect the qBittorrent.conf on my home folder and the qBittorrent home folder i figure out that every time I restarted the service the password was resent to mygobalpassword
So for me the username was: qbittorrent
and the password: myglobalpassword
I’m having the same problems now with the latest Bullseye release and Qbittorrent (just did a clean install). I’m using qbittorrent as user name and myglobalpassword as password, but I’m getting Invalid Username or Password.
Can anyone else confirm this issue?
Here’s the log for the installation:
