The first login is quite difficult to figure out!

The Yunohost users don’t work, you need to login as ‘root’ the first time. What is the password? It is mailed to one of your Yunohost mailaddresses. If you don’t know which one, you can reset it this way after loging in to your Yunohost:

$ sudo su - 
# cd /var/www/peertube 
# sudo -u peertube NODE_CONFIG_DIR=/var/www/peertube/config NODE_ENV=production npm run reset-password -- -u root

> peertube@3.4.1 reset-password /var/www/peertube
> node ./dist/scripts/reset-password.js "-u" "root"

New password?
User password updated.

If you try to do it for a non existing user, the script will freak out with a scary error in many colours.

After that you can log in (as Peertube root, not Yunohost root) and create additional users.

Good luck!

PS: if it (also) works for you, would you mind translating the solution to the languages you know? My French is not good enough to be of much help here, and my Spanish not worth noting at all :stuck_out_tongue: )

It seems that i don’t tell well what i mean.

I can connect with root user and root password received by mall
But during the installation i put my personal mail in the form.

So i can’t loggme in with my ynh user and password.
As peertube root user seems to go over ldap user when email of peertube root account is the same of ldap one account.

Maybe in the install process the mail should be used only to send the root password and set the mail of the root account to admin@domain.tld.
or sert the root user name as ldap username.

I think the synchronization between Yunohost users and Peertube users does not work. The first time I tried Peertube, I expected the users to exist, and gave up because I could not log in.

Now I have a couple of Peertube instances via Yunohosts (and I am very excited about how Peertube works), but none of them have the Yunohost users available: I have to add them manually in Peertube.

I think you can try it now. Times ago it was not working for me too. But now, except for the root/admin user, its working.

Just create users in ynh and verify he LDAP plugin configuration

To enable LDAP authentication open https://sub.domain.tld/admin/plugins/show/peertube-plugin-auth-ldap
Complete with the following informations :

  • URL: ldap://
  • Insecure TLS : checked
  • Search base : ou=users,dc=yunohost,dc=org

After user first authentication on peertune the user appear in the peertube userlist.

And more you can automatically set admin moderators and users right creating groups in ynh and setting LDAP parameters in LDAP peertube plugin
In group base : ou=groups,dc=yunohost,dc=org
In admin dn : cn=goupname,ou=groups,dc=yunohost,dc=org

Great! I will try it the next time for sure, and start with configuring the plugin on the current installation.

Will that make SSO work, or will it configure identical users and query LDAP when logging in, but you still have to log in when visiting Peertube?

Thanks for the example configuration, sorry I could not actually help you with your problem.

Still have to log in when visiting Peertube

Don’t worry not always people can answer mis questions :wink:
