pls advice with clear solution

Hi, it would be very hard for anyone to reply with a "clear solution" when you share so little on your side.

Please take the time to actually describe your issue, what you have done already, what is your configuration, what are the errors in the logs etc.

A guess is that you entered the wrong password?

Acknowledged, thank you.
