@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

With me also the same problem.
I changed the password under qbittorrent / .config

But no success no registration possible.

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.
2.- Execute:

Code: Select all

qbittorrent-nox default
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:

Code: Select all

dietpi-services restart
Now you can access to the service with:

user: qbittorrent
passwd: __YOURPASSWORD__


I hope I've explained well.... :x

Thanks for your reports guys. I will try to replicate. Probably the way the password has to be stored changed.
