Yunohost user list empty / vide


My YunoHost server

Hardware: Raspberry Pi 2 Model B Rev 1.1 at home
YunoHost version: (stable)
I have access to my server : Through SSH
Are you in a special context or did you perform some particular tweaking on your YunoHost instance ? : no

Description of my issue

Good morning/afternoon/evening,

Short story :
I forgot my webapp user name.
I tried to list Yunohost users by typing :
yunohost user list
It returned :
And that’s all !
Like there were no webapp users in my Yunohost installation.
What am I doing wrong ?

Background :
I installed Yunohost in 2020.
I only needed to host the website of my sports club. I found it easier to let Gandi (my registrar) deal with the e-mails we received.
I updated Yunohost (with webapp) on a regular basis until March 2022.
Everything went fine, and I must admit, I neglected updates afterwards.
Recently, Gandi announced that we will have to pay for e-mail hosting.
So I decided, it was time to host e-mail myself.
The first step was to login to SSO.
Everything I tried was refused (“Wrong Username or Password”).

Thank you for your help !


Mon serveur YunoHost

Matériel: Raspberry Pi 2 Model B Rev 1.1 à la maison
Version de YunoHost: (stable)
J’ai accès à mon serveur : En SSH
Êtes-vous dans un contexte particulier ou avez-vous effectué des modificiations particulières sur votre instance ? : non

Description du problème


Version courte :
J’ai oublié mon nom d’utilisateur webapp.
J’ai tenté de lister les utilisateurs Yunohost en tapant :
yunohost user list
Le serveur a répondu :
Et c’est tout !
Comme s’il n’y avait aucun utilisateur webapp dans mon installation Yunohost.
Je dois mal m’y prendre…

Plus d’informations :
J’ai installé Yunohost en 2020.
J’avais seulement besoin d’héberger le site web de mon club de sport. J’ai trouvé plus facile de laisser Gandi (mon registrar) s’occuper des e-mails que nous recevions.
J’ai régulièrement mis à jour Yunohost (par webapp) jusqu’à Mars 2022.
Tout se passait bien, et je dois admettre avoir négligé de faire les mises à jour ensuite.
Récemment, Gandi a announcé que son hébergement e-mail allait devenir payant.
J’ai pensé qu’il était temps que j’héberge notre courriel moi-même.
La première étape était de m’identifier dans le SSO.
Mais tout ce que j’ai essayé a été refusé (“Nom d’utilisateur ou mot de passe incorrect”).

D’avance merci pour votre aide !


Hi Cobus,

Do you still have access to the admin interface at https://mydomain.tld/yunohost/admin/#/ ?

What do you mean by “webapp” and “Yunohost (weth webapp)”?

Hi all !

Thanks a lot @wbk ! This solved my problem !
This page does not require a user name. Only the password (that I remembered).

The webapp is the Yunohost administration web interface.
I thought I could reach it with https://www.mydomain.tld/yunohost, which redirects to https://www.mydomain.tld/yunohost/sso/, but I couldn’t.
The address you gave was the good one to reach the webapp.

Thanks again !

Great! Happy to be of help, good luck with switching mail servers :slight_smile:

Do you have a plan for migration of existing mail? If it is a limited number of mailboxes, and you have access to (changing) the passwords, mbsync/isync could be of help to easily and quickly move mail from one IMAP server to another.

I will have to migrate e-mails, but had no plan.

Thanks for your advice about Isync !
I hope it will work with Debian (on which Yunohost is based).


It does; Arch just has a nice wiki (and there is some ambiguity with isync/mbsync/Isync, so I didn’t want to leave you with just the name of the utility :slight_smile:

Good luck! :slight_smile:
