Mk4: Passwd In Terminal Vs Gui Password

Greetings:

Been playing around with the MK4 fw and am able to ssh into the pineapple and using "passwd" can change the root pw for ssh logins as usual. But since the web UI is not being served over SSH, passwd has no effect on the UI password.

Where is the config file where the web UI password is written?

Thanks!

most likely requires a reboot for web UI.

CSystem,

Issuing the passwd command updates the /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow files.

uhttpd uses these files (think of them like config files) to promt for a password.

That means that you would need to run "/etc/init.d/uhttpd restart" OR simply restart the pineapple.

Done ;)

Best,

Sebkinne
