Freepbx now rejecting "extra" password - can't login

I have a PIAF build with Freepbx 2.10.1.9 that has been stable for about a year. After entering “maint” authentication, it always ask for another login with this prompt: “To get started, please enter your credentials”. Usually I enter them again and life goes on. Until today, when it just started rejecting the credentials. I ran passwd-maint to no avail and then passwd-master but no joy. I looked at amportal.conf but clearly that is not the way to fix this. How do I get back in? I have another box running the same build with no problems if that helps.

amportal a an

or

amportal a fs DATABASE_AUTH false

Well ‘amportal a an’ isn’t exactly “self-documenting” :slight_smile: - but I’m back in! Many thanks!
