Stuck at incorrect octopi login


#1

I'm new, so sorry for a rookie question.

I had my pi3 with a touchscreen setup and working fine, but on starting the pi today it tells me I'm using an incorrect login. I'm in loop that only asks for the octopi login.
How can I get to a place to change my octopi password?

I found instructions on how to change the password by resetting octoprint's user database but I'm stuck at the "octopi login" prompt.

This is a common issue with Debian, and it might not actually apply to
Raspbian.

But on a project I work on we often have people typing their password at
the "login" prompt when it is actually asking for a password.

So, type the username (typically "pi") at the "login" prompt and the
password (typically "raspberry") at the "password prompt"

The message you are seeing might just be saying that there is no user
called "raspberry"

Thanks Andy, that worked

I am glad that you managed to figure out what I meant, rather than what I typed.
I meant to say:

" This is a common issue with Debian, and it might not actually apply to Raspbian. But on a project I work on we often have people typing their password at the "login" prompt when it is actually asking for a User-Name"
