[Solved] Grafana installer script issue

Post by Warmbadger »

I thought I'd share an experience I had while installing Grafana through dietpi-software. After the install I was unable to login to the web ui - it kept saying unknown user and password. After digging through the config I discovered that because my password contained a # sign the config file had to use """ 3 quotes before and after """. The install script wasn't adding them so the password wasn't registering.

Uninstalling and setting my default password to something without a # fixed the issue.

Great software, thanks for developing dietpi.
