Can't type login password, need help please

Postby blackbird_03 » Tue Jan 20, 2015 6:37 pm

Hello guys

I'm new in Asterisk and i already have my first problem.
Well I installed Asterisk on a virtual machine, then after installing it asks for the 'localhost login' and I know it is 'root' then i press enter and it wants me to enter a password, I know the password because i had need to set it when installing...

But the problem is after i entered root and i press enter it wants the password but then it gets stuck, i can't type anything i can only press enter and when i press enter it says incorrect login...

How can i fix this please?
I reinstalled Asterisk a several times but the problem still doesn't fix..

Thanks,

I got a screenshot :)

You can type the password but there is no chars like ***** showing each key. Just type the correct password and then hit enter.

No there are no output at all you only type the password and then hit enter. Maybe you should start by studying LINUX first.

If you lost the password you can use the single mode to change the PWD. Google has very screens on how enter in single/recovery mode.

If you have not done any significant configuration, start over and make sure that enter the password correctly this time.

If this is a student exercise, what goes wrong and how you recover from it is as important as the headline task. Even a professional developer has to consider the need to divert to sub-goals, like learning basic linux, although as a student, you may still get marks for doing that well, whereas a professional will be judged by meeting time and budget on the primary task.

I imagine 100s of thousands of people have installed AsteriskNOW and very few, if any, have had problems with the password., all of which are probably due to user error.
