Troubleshooting Process

  1. Try to log in with a local account
  2. Try to log in with a Google Auth SSO account
  3. Example JavaScript and Server logs if you are not able to log in.

Specific Problems:

Invalid Google Auth Token:

Sometimes your token from Google will expire.

How to detect this:

Open up the JavaScript console. Try to log in with Google Auth, see if there are any error messages in the JavaScript console indicating an invalid account.

Also open up your server logs, and see if there are any errors related to authentication. If there are, try recreating the token.

How to fix this:

Remove the old token from the Google Auth SSO tab in the Admin Panel and create a new one. If the root cause was an invalid auth token, this should fix the problem.
