qbittorrent / dietpi
qbittorrent / adminadmin
qbittorrent / *myglobalpass*
root / dietpi
root / adminadmin
root / *myglobalpass*

@sc355
I could replicate the issue. Even removing the user and password from the config file and restarting the service didn't allow me to login the web UI: https://github.com/qbittorrent/qBittorr ... ent-nox%29
But also there is no wrong user/password warning, so it seems to be another issue actually. Is that true in your case as well when you use qbittorrent / *myglobalpass*?

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.

Ref: https://github.com/MichaIng/DietPi/issues/2861

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 will add the info to our online docs for now: viewtopic.php?p=2272#p2272
