noob needs help with web browser config access
- View SourceHi all,
I'm relatively new to this Linkstation setup.
I have 250GB mips unit, which I updated to use OpenLink firmware. I
set root password, I added a new user, I created the dropbear SSH keys.
I can log in using telnet and/or SSH client (Putty). I changed the
part about going directly to bash prompt instead of logging in over
telnet to force the login. I also (thought) I upgraded the Perl to
5.8.5. I didn't realize it already had a more recent version. I
followed the instructions on the fieldnetworks site to do that. So,
yes, I know that I have managed to downgrade my Perl installation. I
also changed the symbolic liks to the perl directories.
Anyway, my issue is that I can't access the LS using the web browser
anymore. I can still connect via telnet, ssh, and windows
networking/samba using the user accounts I have, but the web interface
won't accept my login. I was getting the LS's password error page, or
an "error 500' page when I tried with no password.
Today I read about this on the Linkstation wiki forums:
I managed to lock myself out of the web interface. How can I fix this?
Delete /www/.htpasswd and /www/cgi-bin/.htpasswd. The LinkStation will
automatically regenerate the appropriate files.
but when I tried it, now I directly get an "error 500" when I try to
access the web interface.
Can anyone help me out here? Thanks.
