I had a working installation of Kolibri this morning on Ubuntu 16.04 with users and classes already created, all i had left to do was to start importing content. My laptop ran out of charge but when I finally restarted it, going to http:localhost:8080 was a dead end (i guessed the web sever had stopped working;going to the ubuntu terminal and typing
kolibri status confirmed this). On the terminal I typed
kolibri start and on going to http:localhost:8080 instead of giving me a login screen it gave me a 3 step set up screen (asking for institution name, new user name, new user pass). This confused me as all i wanted was to get into my original account and continue where I had left off but when I finished the steps, I was in a brand new account and all my previous work was undone.
What could have happened? How can I prevent it happening in the future, undoing hours of good work? Where may I have gone wrong?
