Building gateway locally misses default email/password after npm start

I build gateway locally and was able to start it.
But the docs miss the default email and password to login.

after npm start and browsing to http://localhost:8080 i get this:

but there is no not in the about what kind of default email/password is to use…

How can I Log in? Am I missing something?

There is no default. You probably have something cached (we have some caching issues we’re trying to figure out). Try opening a private browser window (or clear your cache) and just navigate to http://localhost:8080.

Edit: That is, unless you previously had the gateway running on the same host. In that case, your username/password will still be what you previously had set. All gateway configuration data is stored in ~/.mozilla-iot.

That does not work.

what do you mean to do in ~/.mozilla-iot?
I have this:

Can I find the password in there some ware?

If you want to start fresh, you can do the following:

  • Stop the gateway
  • rm -rf ~/.mozilla-iot
  • Start the gateway
  • Open http://localhost:8080, and hard refresh if necessary.

That helped.
I know i had a addon aready self compiled. Maybe i tried to also install gateway and forgot it in ghe meanwhile. Must be more than 1,5 years or so… Concider that issie not related to any other cache than my Brain :grin:.
