Can't login at hosting computer server

My YunoHost server

Old gaming computer. nividia 970 display card, 500gig crucial ssd, mbord: gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R with 16gig of mem

**YunoHost version:
yunohost-bullseye-11.0.9-amd64-stable run from usb that was made using balenaEtcher-Portable-1.18.11
HDD was formatted using gparted-live-1.5.0-6-amd64

I have access to my server
direct access via keyboard / screen

Are you in a special context or did you perform some particular tweaking on your YunoHost instance ?

Description of my issue

This is acually two problems and I know the issue is: PBKC (problem between keyboard and chair) :slight_smile:

I havent touched the server in almost a year and when I booted it up I get the error :
Local IP: (no ip detected)

So, I tried to login at the server using bouse and keyboard. I saved the password to a document. I’m pretty sure I’m no adding the right ending to the username and or password. Real newby here sorry …

Upon bootup I see:

bob login:

my password is brown

so do I use

  1. bob login:brown

2. bob login: bob@brown

I then see password:and I type
password: uncertainme

I get
incorrect login login:

Hoping someone can set me straight

Best regards,

Voici des messages d'erreurs

You need to pass your username first, whatever it might be, then your password when prompted for password.
If you have your credentials stored in some password manager both username and password should be there and, if that’s an admin user, you should be able to log in locally to see what the issue with networking may be.

Hi uncertain,

So, you actually have the command line login in front of you, not the web page, correct?

In that case, ‘bob’ would be the name of your Yunohost. It would look like:

bob login: unknown (your Yunohost admin user)
password:  (stays empty while typing)

Hi @orhyej2 and @wbk

Thankyou for your assistance. As happens in computerland, I turned it on this morning and it worked. I was able to logon with the username and password that was rejected at the server console.

I would still like to workout what I’m doing that is wrong if you are still willing? Here is the answer to @wbk questions

So, you actually have the command line login in front of you, not the web page, correct?


In that case, ‘bob’ would be the name of your Yunohost. It would look like:

Here is an annotated picture of what I am seeing and doing. Hope this helps’

Question: I know from my reading that the no ip at boot is a known bug. The solution is to apply a script that keeps the network card active? Can I apply this scrept / edit from the web interface? Are there clear step by step instructions on how to do this?

Many thanks,



In that case, do you log in here (user portal),


or here (admin portal)?


Not all users that can log in as a user, also can log in as admin. In general, only the users that can log in as admin, can log in on the command line.

So if ‘bob’ can log in at the user portal, but not at the admin portal, the login will be rejected when you try to log in via screen and key board.

I’d be interested as well! I think it sometimes happens to me, but not often enough to be sure it actually happened or that I misconfigured something.

Hi @wbk ,

yes, that is great news! Thank you for your assistance!
I can login on both portals now but I am using the admin one. The pc seems to be rebooting reliably with network.

My next challenge seems to be updating the system. Each time I do “update all” it kicks me out and when I log back in nothing has changed. I have attached the log file below.

Note: Should I start a new topic for this?
