Description:
I am not able to login to Fauxton on my local machine-windows 10. I observed that I can view couchdb database created on server on command line in my local machine.
However, all attempts to use the same username (admin) and password (server password) to Login to Fauxton on my local machine has failed- I get an error of wrong password or username.
I would be grateful to get some ideas on resolving this issue. I have read and tried these documentation https://docs.bitnami.com/google/infrastructure/couchdb/administration/connect-remotely/ https://docs.bitnami.com/google/infrastructure/couchdb/administration/connect-fauxton/ , but not able to resolve.
Thank you in anticipation

Hi @dimo,

I just deployed a new instance in Google and could access Fauxton without problems

You can also try using the command line to verify the web server is working

bitnami@bitnami-couchdb-b4d2:~$ curl -LI http://admin:PASSWORD@localhost:5984/_utils/

Dear jota,

Thank you for the feedback.

I have tried the command on my server and this was the response:
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Cache-Control: private, must-revalidate
Content-Length: 2009
Content-Security-Policy: child-src ‘self’ data: blob:; default-src ‘self’; img-src ‘self’ data:; font-src ‘self’;

What does this mean? I have tried once again to access Fauxton on chrome on my windows 10 machine using the admin username and password but it is always returing wrong username or password.
Thank you for the assistance

It means that the web server is working properly. You didn’t set the SSH tunnel correctly and that’s why you can’t access the application.

Thank you.

I resolved the problem, but I had to adandon Putty and create an SSH tunnel from command line on my local machine.

Best
