Thank you very much @@fflorent and all contributors for this package!

What’s the advantages of n8n against Node-Red?
I am using node red for home automation and et looks fairly similar at first glance


I would like to update n8n. I get an error message telling me that the migration is not possible, and sends me to a now closed Github issue.

So what is the procedure to follow? Do I have to save my workflows, and redo a complete installation?

Thanks :slight_smile:

trop cool ce genre, d’apps

faut que je test


A post was split to a new topic: Connection to n8n impossible

I installed n8n on my yunohost but when I access the n8n keeps asking me for username and password and I don’t know which one I try to put the user’s password and it doesn’t work, what is the default password for this application?

At the time of installation, only mine asked to create a password and even though I’m trying to put only the password if username doesn’t work…

Can someone help me please?

I have the same problem as someone else:

I had the same issue. Reported here how I fixed it Cannot login with user and password · Issue #13 · YunoHost-Apps/n8n_ynh · GitHub

Does anyone know how to update n8n? I have run updates/upgrades both through the yunohost web admin and via the CLI and it says it’s up to date, but within the app it says it’s 4 months behind updates. I’m not sure how to bring it up to date.


I think you are confusing the latest version of n8n released, and the latest version packaged for Yunohost. The latest packaged version is often behind the latest release.

When you are up to date with the packaged version, Yunohost tells you that you are… up to date. But n8n detects that you are running an older version and warns you that an update is available (but it is not available via the Yunohost package system)

Right now, the Yunohost package delivered the version 0.203.1, but the latest n8n version of the software is 0.212.0.

I see. So I’m guessing that means I must wait for the packaged version to catch up to the latest release?

Exactly! :slight_smile:

Thank you for this great package! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: @fflorent do I need to wait your update in order to upgrade n8n to the latest version?
