    Hey guys,

    While setting up my web interface I decided to change the default administration password to something more secure. Previously I’d just logged in with l:mt-daapd p:mt-daapd. I assumed the format once I’d changed would be l:mt-daapd p:.

    For whatever reason though, it’s not working. No idea if I’m missing something, I mistyped the password, or what.

    Is there any way to reset the password to default? As of now I’m really stuck.

    I’m running Ubuntu 8.10.



    Find & open the config file using a text editor of your choice and edit the password.
    The password is not encrypted.

    File name is mt-daapd.conf

    Oh, and you can leave the log-in name blank, you only need the password.


    I guess you have to restart firefly to actually change the password.


    Thanks for the replies, guys. That sorted the problem out. Took me a while before I realised I would have to restart ms-daapd for the change to take effect.

    Thanks again!
