Invalid email address/password

Question:

It’s saying my email address and password are incorrect, but I know I’m entering them correctly and can log into the website. What do I do?

Answer:

If you install the app as root (i.e. using sudo), then the data directory will be owned by root, and therefore your normal user account won’t be able to write to it (and therefore can’t log into it. To fix this, all you have to do is change the directory permissions so that it’s owned by your normal user account.

Step 1

Open a command terminal.

Step 2

Enter the following and press enter: chown -R <user>.<user> ~/.local/share/HubStaff
