Couchpotato user:pass@host format error

Postby Larsl » Fri Oct 21, 2016 10:58 pm


I have been using the user:pass@host format for couchpotato to get nzb360 to connect to couchpotato.

But changed my password so now it has a colon in it. Which seems like have made it stopped working. I assume it's because there is already a colon in that format?


User: MyUsername
Pass: Password:Couch

Is it possible to have a colon in the password or do I need to change it?

Any help is greatly appreciated :)

it could be an issue with either CP or nzb360 not being able to split the variables. My advice is to just don't use a colon... easiest fix...

You're gonna have to change it. The HTTP format uses a colon there, which I think would break HTTP auth used in that way.
