(resolved) New DietPi install can't log into webiopi


I’ve just installed the latest DietPi - am very impressed so far. But after selecting and installing webiopi I can’t log in.

I get the user/password prompt at the URL, but can’t log in. Have tried changing passwords and usernames with webiopi-passwd, but keep getting the same result.

Can anyone help?


Hi Nzbaxterman,

Thanks for the report. I’ll look into this tomorrow and get back to you.

Hi Nzbaxterman,

It seems using webiopi-passwd causes the password to be rendered “broken”. I’ll take a look and see whats causing this.

When using webiopi-passwd, you need to enter the correct username (webiopi), before entering password:

root@dietpi:~# webiopi-passwd
WebIOPi passwd file generator
Enter Login: webiopi
Enter Password:
Confirm password:

You must also restart the service to apply the new PW:

service webiopi restart
