Myopenhab password reset not possible

(Florian) #1

Hello all,
I tried to reset my password in myopenhab. Now the login page says “Unknown user or incorrect password”.
Is there an admin I can contact?

Experiencing the same just now. Password reset function defective? Did you ever sort this out?

I have got the same problem. I made an error while typing in the initial password, so I tried to have my password reset but never received a reset e-mail to my mail-account.

The “confirm new account” mail was sent to an userid, which, according to the password reset panel, is not registered?

Registering another email is impossible, as the UID is already in use. So I am locked out from

Any help is appreciated!

Same problem here. Login was not taking my password so I had it send me a reset link.

I followed the link, and it said it successfully reset my password, but the password is not accepted for login.

I’m guessing there’s probably a hard lockout on the account, but the UI is not expressing that.

Who handles these things? BTW, my original failed login used the stored password I had in Chrome. The password had never been changed since I set it up a few months back, so it was odd that it was no longer being accepted.

Did anyone ever get this problem sorted? I now have the same issue.

Are you sure email address is correct?

(Simon Crump) #7

Duh, had used my username instead of email in the App. Simple things…

Thanks for the reply though.

I have the same problem now.
I’m using an emailaddress with a plus-sign:
Maybe that’s a problem now, but I’m not able to connect any more.

If I’m opening the password-reset link from the mail, it doesn’t work in the first try.
In the second try it works.
But then it’s not possible to login with the new password.

It’s very likely the plus symbol, there have been reports of issues, but we have not yet tacked that issue.
