Hello k2edutech,

Can you please provide us with the server logs? This might help us better understand what is going on as the error messages from Kolibri itself might identify the cause.

See here for instructions on where to find the server logs for Kolibri.

With more information we may be better able to figure out what is going on.

In general, it would be worth doing the following:

  • Check your server resources and health itself. Has it run out of hard drive space or might there be any other possible issues there?
  • Perhaps try stopping and then restarting the server if you haven’t already.

Best regards,

The problem has been solved. The login error occurred after a .cvs file was imported to add USERS in Kolibri. The file contained the same admin USER name that was already in the Kolibri data. This caused the login issue.
The issue was solved after creating a new admin USER/PWD using commands. Login was done with this new admin, and then the old duplicate admin USER/PWD were deleted.
