Description of my issue

I just installed Yunohost 4.1.8 on an old 64-bit laptop in the hopes of upgrading my current 32-bit Yunohost server.

During the installation, my ethernet connection was not detected. I thought this strange, but since the wireless connection WAS detected, I proceeded with the installation. (NOTE: The wired/ethernet connection worked fine when the machine was running Windows, and I can access the ethernet connection by booting Linux Mint or TAILS from USB, so I don’t think it’s the hardware that’s at fault).

As I said in a separate post, I am presented with a tty1 login screen when the machine boots, but I cannot get past this because no users/passwords are configured yet. And since Yunohost doesn’t see my LAN, I can’t access the web admin interface (yunohost.local, or the local IP). I just want to restore the backup from my old server!

Any help would be appreciated.


So I’m assuming you installed yunohost using our pre-installed iso ?

What about login: root, password: yunohost ?

Thanks Aleks–that got me in!
And then I followed Problème installation Yunohost sur miniPC (pas de connexion) - #3 by didero to get the ethernet working.
Next I will copy the .tar and .info.json files for my backup into the /home/yunohost.backup/archives/ folder and try to restore them.
