WebUI and password problems seem to have been discussed a lot here, but still this problem is quite maddening - here is the step-by-step:
(1) Start deluge (I use the deluge-gtk, from the desktop, for the moment) (2) Connect to it using a browser - login using the default password (3) Observe it all functioning properly - you can see the torrents, make changes, etc. (4) Click the the Options/Prefs/Configure button and open the pane that lets you change the Password and/or the Timeout and other things (5) Make ANY change there - e.g. set the timeout to something else. (6) Hit Apply and/or OK *** You get into an endless loop of Login Prompts !!! You are asked for your password again and again! If you enter the: (a) Correct password - you just get another login prompt window (b) Incorrect password - you get an "You entered an incorrect password!" message and back to the login prompt.
No, I have not and do not wish to change the password! All I want is the WebUI to let me in! It clearly makes a distinction between the right and wrong passwords, but _something_ seems to get into some endless loop of logins when that particular config pane is used.
