Access to local server not possible after adding second user

SopduSopdu Posts: 3Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

Hi,

i became finally a PlexPass Member today.
I am using Plex for quite a while and i am so happy with it that i finally subscribed for a Lifetime Subscription.

I am running the Server on a CentOS Linux Server
Access was configured to be without Authorization for local hosts.
My Plex Server is connected to my Plex account.

After I added a second user and set the Plex App pin i am not able to login anymore locally to configure my server.
I still can access via browser outside of my home the content using my Plex account.

When I try to access my local server using this URL http://localhost:32400/web/index.html#!/dashboard I am prompted to login with my PlexAccount.

Once I enter my details i get the following message:
- The username or password is incorrect. Repeated attempts may temporarily disable sign in.

I also tried to access plex.tv from my server directly which results in the same message as above.

But the provided credentials are fine because I can login to plex.tv (as you can see i am writing from my account) if i am not doing it from my server.

I have the feeling that i have a setting in place which prevents me now to access my server (as admin).

I really hope you can help me out...

Thanks a lot.

    Ok this issue seems to be only mine.

    Anyway i found a solution.

    After i gained access again on my server... see above ... I was still not able to connect my server to my account. I could solve this by accessing my server from a different local machine.
    Strange to me... but somehow from my server i cannot connect to plex.tv anymore.

    Now it all works again...

    UPDATE...

    Using this Link

    Why am I locked out of Server Settings and how do I get in?-

    I was able to gain access back to my server.
    Now the issue is that i am not able to sign in to my account within my Plex Server.

    The message remains: "The username or password is incorrect. Repeated attempts may temporarily disable sign in."

    How is this possible when i am logged in right now using the same credentials?

    Thanks a lot
