how to disable webui password

Postby gggie » Mon Mar 01, 2010 7:18 pm

I don't need a password for the webui. Is there a way to disable the password prompt? I already changed the password to nothing, but the prompt still comes up (I just hit login without typing anything in the box).

I believe the info is saved as a cookie in the browser, you could set the cookie and then never delete it.

How would I do that? I've already got Firefox set to not delete cookies, but the password prompt still pops up often. The deluge password cookie seems to delete itself fairly frequently.

You can change how long a session lasts:

  1. Stop deluge-web
  2. Open up web.conf
  3. Change session_timeout from 3600 to 31536000
  4. Start deluge-web

The session_timeout setting is in seconds and by default only lasts an hour.
The above steps changes it to last a year.
