[L8-problem solved] Wrong credentials are causing ErrorException


when you enter wrong credentials at WUI login
you’re thrown to the " Whoops, looks like something went wrong. Check your librenms.log."-page.

No hint is given on “wrong credentials” until you hit the -button of your browser.

Tested with chrome and firefox.

Component | Version
--------- | -------
LibreNMS | 1.43-92-ge81a1fc
DB Schema | 267
PHP | 7.1.21
MySQL | 5.5.60-MariaDB
RRDTool | 1.4.8

[OK] Composer Version: 1.7.2
[OK] Dependencies up-to-date.
[OK] Database connection successful
[OK] Database schema correct

Can somebody please confirm?

Thank you!

Best regards,

What auth method? Mine just says “Invalid Credentials”

Perhaps post the error message from librenms.log?

sorry for leaving this out.

$config[‘auth_mechanism’] = “active_directory”;

We’re using LDAP over TLS.

The messages are here:

There are about a hundred posts about that here.

Run ./validate.php and fix the given issues.

Hi Murrant,

thank you for your reply!

Sorry for wasting your time by ignoring problems reported by ./validate.php
I will never do this again! (promised!)


I was igoring these warning lines ./validate.phhp reported:

[WARN] Your local git contains modified files, this could prevent automatic updates.
[FIX] You can fix this with ./scripts/github-remove
Modified Files:

These did not look important to me and not relevant to the problem I observed.

However, actually these did prevent (parts) of automatic updates!

./scripts/github-remove -d

fixed the issue, then ran

-> ./daily.sh

Now the “BUG” reported above is gone!
I’m telling this to other “ignorant guys” like me :slight_smile:

Thank you!
