Cannot elevate my user

Philip Goldwasser 2 weeks ago updated 2 weeks ago 2

I have installed Ajenti with no issue.  I can log in but when I click to elevate the login, it brings up a login prompt and then just goes right back to the main Ajenti screen.  It will not allow me to elevate.

I've had the same issue today after I first installed Ajenti 2 on Ubuntu 22.04.2 LTS.

This is the work-around I found for elevating:

  1. Open two instances of the login page. 
  2. Login to one of those pages first before the next step.
  3. On the second login page, replace the word "normal" in the URL with "sudo" then enter your password there and submit.

I don't understand why it's redirecting automatically without waiting for user input for elevating, but I hope this helps.

I tried this and on the second page, where I replaced the word Normal with Sudo, I got a password prompt.  I was able to enter the password, but I was not able to click the authenticate button.  So this did not work.
