Can't log in to dashboard

Setup of Traefik 1.7 is up and running. Reverse proxy with 3 Docker (SWARM) apps is working regularly, but I can't log in to the dashboard. The username / PW is not accepted.

PW is generated with
echo $(htpasswd -nb user password) | sed -e s/\$/\$\$/g
and copied into basic_auth.

My traefik.toml:
defaultEntryPoints = ["http", "https"]

logLevel = "INFO"

address = ":80"
entryPoint = "https"
address = ":443"

storage = "acme.json"
entryPoint = "https"
onDemand = false
onHostRule = true
entryPoint = "http"


entryPoint = "https"

endpoint = "unix:///var/run/docker.sock"
watch = true
exposedByDefault = false

When I try to reach the dashboard via I get the request to enter username and password and: nothing.

Where is the fault? Anybody got an idea where to look?

Thank you.


where you able to resolve this


is there any specific reason why you are still using the v1? I strongly encourage you to upgrade to the latest version which is 2.7.1.
