Tt-rss + ttrss-android auth broken


#1

PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE POSTING: Read before posting / reporting bugs

Describe the problem you’re having:

tt-rss android always report Error: username or password incorrect (HTTP basic auth + ttrss auth, this is not a single user installation). Was working perfectly fine a few days/hours ago. The passwords and usernames have been double checked and tt-rss works well in my desktop browser.

If possible include steps to reproduce the problem:

Not clear since it was working perfectly until a few days/hours.

  • setup tt-rss
  • setup http basic auth
  • try to connect w/ ttrss-android

tt-rss version (including git commit id):

d0cce0c7a431d886403632ef94add650363d4ef6

Platform (i.e. Linux distro, PHP, PostgreSQL, etc) versions:

TT-RSS hosting:

  • Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS up to date
  • nginx + PHP 7.0.22-0ubuntu0.16.04.1
  • Mariadb 10.0.31-0ubuntu0.16.04.2

TT-RSS client:

  • Oneplus 3T, LineageOS up to date
  • TT-RSS 1.231 (465) (updated 7 hours ago)
  • Build timestamp: 2017.12.11 13:12:25

check ttrss logs in preferences system tab for anything relevant

also post which auth modules are enabled in config.php

Thank you very much for your reply.

Here’s the error appearing in the logs:

Another phone running ttrss-android 1.229 (463) Buid timestamp 2017.11.21 14:41:03 works (with another user).

you should have said that. this means your problem is not with the server but either with the device, its network connection, or maybe actual password.

nothing changed with regard to http from version code 463 to 465 (the latest one) - the only change is related to custom tabs - so if 463 works 465 should work too.

e: can this user login via tt-rss web ui?

e2: i mean it’s ofc entirely possible of course that apk 465 BROKE EVERYTHING just very unlikely


#5
e: can this user login via tt-rss web ui?

That’s what I tested and I wasn’t able to login. Fortunately, I was still online from another computer and managed to change my password - not really a change since I set the password I currently use. I’m now able to login again both via the web ui and my phone (both web and tt-rss app).

It’s like my password suddenly changed without me changing it. Either it has been “corrupted” in some way, or my VPS has been compromised. Anyway, it’s working now. I’m going to check the logs carefully.

Thanks for your help.


#6

you should check database backups if you have them

there shouldn’t have been any change with password hashes on current tt-rss, just imagine the shitstorm if i suddenly broke everyone’s password but it’s still somewhat worrying.


#7

Looks like you just broke his :smiley:
