Using nextcloudpi for ease of setup however I believe this problem is common as I’ve read around and is easy to replicate.
Nextcloud version 12.0.1
Operating system: Raspbian for raspberry pi 32-bit
Apache: Apache/2.4.25 (Raspbian)
PHP version : PHP 7.0.19-1 (cli)
Is this the first time you’ve seen this error?:
No, this was always present even with a fresh install.
Can you reliably replicate it? (If so, please outline steps):
- Log into admin account
- Go to users tab
- Do things like add user, change username, change password, etc and it will fail.
- The password prompt will be repeated indefinitely even if admin password is correct.
The issue you are facing:
The password prompt will be repeated indefinitely even if admin password is correct.
The solution is as I’ve read around is simple: simply change the date/time and make sure it is accurate. After changing date/time the authentication will work again.
However for me, this is not the case for whatever reason. I tried doing
raspi-config and setting the timezone. Reboot, doesn’t work.
Tried also manually setting it with
date --set="date time". Reboot, doesn’t work.
It worked for others facing the same problem, but it doesn’t work for me, what am I doing wrong?
