open app preferences, enable transport debugging and see if there’s anything login-related in built-in log viewer.

it’s unlikely but maybe your password has special characters which break login, try temporarily changing it to something like 1234.


Username/password is correct in the logs. I changed my password, Still not working.


In the app there are two password fields. One is TTRSS password and the other is HTTP password. Make sure you’re using the correct one.


I’m only using the app login so I was setting that under the connection info.


Just upgraded to v18.12 (c607b78)

still having the same issue.


ID10T error.

My site auto redirects adding www. I didn’t put the WWW in the URL for the app. Not sure why it’s showing a bad username/password error but the lack of www was the issue.
