[WAC104] Unable to login through LuCI w/ OpenWrt 21.02.0-rc4

Hi,

I wanted to upgrade OpenWrt on my WAC104 with the 21.02.0-rc4 and did a clean upgrade (erasing the previous configuration).

Since I wanted to have a "dumb AP", I disabled the DHCP server, the firewall, let all the network interfaces bridged and setup the WAC104 to be assigned an IP from an external device. Before rebooting, I set a password for root.

I then proceeded to install LuCI and was surprised to not being able to log, even though I did not get an error (I could get an error by entering a wrong password).

This is what logread reports:

Tue Aug 17 03:07:01 2021 daemon.err uhttpd[1340]: luci: accepted login on / for root from 192.168.1.10
Tue Aug 17 03:07:03 2021 daemon.err uhttpd[1340]: luci: accepted login on / for root from 192.168.1.10
Tue Aug 17 03:07:04 2021 daemon.err uhttpd[1340]: luci: accepted login on / for root from 192.168.1.10
Tue Aug 17 03:07:06 2021 daemon.err uhttpd[1340]: luci: accepted login on / for root from 192.168.1.10
Tue Aug 17 03:07:07 2021 daemon.err uhttpd[1340]: luci: accepted login on / for root from 192.168.1.10

Is LuCI, uhttpd at fault here or is this a bug that is expected in this RC? (I could not find such a thing in the changelog).

Anyone has an idea of what is happening here?

I would suggest to clear cookies/ local data/ cache, there might be interference from cached data (e.g. http redirect from the previous firmware) and/ or try a different browser and/ or incognito mode. -RCs do contain luci (master snapshots do not), given that luci is a pure software feature, I would expect it to work.

Wow, never expected being blocked that long by a web browser cache. And for that one time working with Openwrt installations, when I do not go directly into incognito mode.

Anyway, clearing the cache of Firefox did the trick. Thanks! (This will be the first time that clearing the cache actually does the trick but, first time for everything I guess)

Especially http redirects are basically (and invisibly) remembered forever.
