I'm in a somewhat unfair situation right now, in that I'm being demanded to administer and troubleshoot a Hudson install, when strictly speaking, I'd never even heard of it 48 hours ago.
Basically, there's a CentOS 4.7 box on which Hudson is running. I'm the admin of the Linux box, but I have no idea of when Hudson was installed, who installed it - nothing.
And now there's a user who 'can no longer access the box'. By which he means that he *could* access it before. So someone's changed something. No idea who, but I have to come in and clean up the garbage.
By poking around, I was able to get to /var/lib/hudson/users and in there, there are three directories named after the users, and in each directory, there is a config.xml file.
If I edit the config.xml file, there's <passwordHash></passwordHash> with a hash between them. I delete the password, and then comes the question of how to restart Hudson. Again, no idea of how to do so, as I only have shell access to that box. So I ask the user to get one of his colleagues to go to http : / / h u d s o n s e r v e r / r e s t a r t (sorry - had to insert spaces there) which he does, and he still can't get access.
When he tries, he has a pop-up appearing, with 'a user name and password are being requested ..'
In the window behind is Status Code: 401 Exception Bad credentials.
Really not happy that I've been asked to fix this mess. No, make that: told to fix this mess. Can someone help?
