Ok, guys. New to NR here, so be easy please.
I have installed on a Windows PC and have edited my settings.js file. I originally was editing the wrong file in the %AppData% folder but have now changed the one in the User Directory .node-red folder.
When I just uncommented the settings line, restarted and loaded the editor, it prompted me for a password and I used the default. So that test worked.
I then ran the following command to change to my own password;
I got the prompt for Password, Typed in my password, copied the Hash into the file, rebooted the server.
When the server came up and I loaded the Dashboard, it did not prompt for username and password again.
I'm at a loss as it seems to work when I use the default password, but not when I set my own.
