password

Added by Wolfgang Buesser 6 days ago

I have used VDR for a long time and want to try tvheadend now.
But I can't login:

I have installed the binary on Centos 7.
I start with service tvheadend start
When I try to connect to the webserver I get asked for some account data.
Apparently the installation has created a new user tvheadend.

What is default admin password created for tvheadend?

CentOS defect ;)

  1. cd /home/hts/.hts/tvheadend
  2. touch superuser
  3. add this text to superuser file
    {
    "username": "user",
    "password": "password" 
    }
    
  4. restart service

Thanks,

just in case somebody else needs this:

The user is tvheadend. The file has to be in:
/home/tvheadend/config/superuser

RE: password - Added by saen acro 6 days ago

this is only in case when use current user to start it
normally is hts:video (user:group)
with command line

/usr/bin/tvheadend -f -p /var/run/tvheadend.pid -u hts -g video

run by service

Hi.
I have Centos 7 1511 installed and I do not know much about setup. The verification of TvHeadend is 4.2.5. When I start with Service I can not login. I have searched for the folder indicated above, but I do not have it. If I start with tvheadend -C I have no problems. What solution can I do?
Folder: /home/tvheadend/config/ (ONLY)
Best Regards.
