Big problem with Two Factor authentication for Nextcloud and Webtop 5


(Uwe) #1

Hello friends,

after a crash I had to reset my iPhone and also had to re-play the Google Authenticator, which I used for the two-factor authentication. Now it is no longer possible to access Webtop or Nextcloud. How can I disable the two factor authentication via putty?

Thanks you for your help.

If there is no other admin user that can authenticate, on Nextcloud you can disable 2FA using occ command. To temporarily disable 2FA for a specific user:

su - apache -s /bin/bash -c "source /opt/rh/rh-php71/enable; cd /usr/share/nextcloud/; php occ twofactor:disable <username>"

Another option for nextcloud would be to disable the 2FA app…

For webtop5:

su - postgres -c 'psql webtop5'
UPDATE "core"."settings" SET "value"='false' WHERE "key"='otp.enabled';

Afterwards you may have to trigger:

signal-event nethserver-webtop5-update
