Password reset & now no access
« on: November 27, 2018, 07:21:03 AM »
I am setting up my new Meteobridge and reset the password from the default.  I used a random generated password that contained a symbol and was my default 20-characters for new password.  When I clicked save I got a warning about HTTP only allowing alphanumeric so I tried to reset a new password without the symbol (in this case a @).  What I discovered was the Meteobridge after the initial password save initiated a system reboot and now I cannot log back in.  I suspect one of the following happened:

  • @ symbol got changed to something else
  • Length of the password was truncated

At this point not sure how to move forward.  This is a new install so wiping and starting over is the final option but really don't want to redo all the settings again.  If there are any suggestions/ideas please let me know.

Thanks!

Wiki explains at the end of the "getting started" section how to just revert network settings for DHCP LAN mode. That way you don't loose your other settings. https://www.meteobridge.com/wiki/index.php/Getting_Started
