I'm a newbie in Linux. I've installed utorrent and set up a password. Since then to reach localhost:8080/gui I need to enter a password, but after I enter it the "authentication is required" popup reappears over and over again and I can't use utorrent anymore.

it keeps showing up

If this is the first time you are opening the web UI, enter admin as username and leave the password field empty. After logging in to web UI, you can change the password by clicking on the gear icon and opening settings tab. In settings, click on Web UI on the left side and change the password then click on Save settings on top right. Now you can log in with your new username and password.

In case of forgotten password: Close utserver using system monitor or by running sudo killall utserver in terminal. Go to your utorrent folder and delete settings.dat file. Run utserver. Now you can log in to Web UI using default admin username and leaving password field empty.

  • But this is not my first time as I said before I'd set a password and after that I'm not able to login again and the authentication tab keeps opening again and again. Jun 2, 2017 at 14:29
  • This means you are entering wrong username and password. You might had Caps Lock on or typed using another keyboard layout when setting new password.
