Newbie init problems

Just received my OVMS module. I am excited to get it up and running for my Ioniq vFL.

Firmware: 3.2.013/factory/main
Hardware: OVMS WIFI BLE BT cores=2 rev=ESP32/1

I started the Web console init on

I entered the Module ID and Module password.

As the init process instructed, I managed to connect to WiFi with the new ModuleID and password.
However, after this, the login was not successful. I got


  • Login validation failed, please check username & password

even though I feel sure that I entered the Module ID and password correctly as I was able to connect to the Wifi with my ModuleID and password.

Then, after some time, the WiFi network name reverted to OVMS (from the previous Module ID).

Well, I started the USB console session to get by this login issue.




config set password module myNewPw (or whatever it was)

went succesfully.

However, this didn't correct the web console login issue. Tried to login with

  • MyModuleID/myNewPw
  • OVMS/myNewPw
  • OVMS/OVMSinit

and all failed.

To me it appears like there is an issue in the setup module. Somehow the Module ID/password didn't correctly update to the web console login. I'd be grateful for help on how to fix this?

  1. How to change the Module ID with Config?
  2. How to make the web console login work with the updated module id/password?
  3. Any other help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks, this seems to have been the issue. As I entered admin as the username, I was able to login.
