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

Post by nzbaxterman »

Hello

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?


Thanks

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:

Code: Select all

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:

Code: Select all

service webiopi restart
