"successfully logged in" but get "Invalid username or password"

I login and get:

Invalid username or password.

I checked /usr/local/hestia/log/auth.log and get:

2021-09-01 14:00:42 username my.ip.xx.yy successfully logged in

I checked /usr/local/hestia/log/system.log and get:

2021-09-01 13:55:12 v-add-firewall-chain ‘HESTIA’
2021-09-01 13:56:08 v-add-sys-sftp-jail

Same with admin and regular user.

How to solve?
Thank you very much

Do you have cookies enabled?

Strange!
It happened due to my VPN. In both cases I entered a few IPs in

Use IP address allow list for login attempts

When I Googled “My Ip” in the browser I got an IP which is in the above list. However, Hestia Login page used the original IP of my computer which is not in the above list. WHY?

I tried another user which has no IPs in

Use IP address allow list for login attempts

And it works fine.
I solved the IP problem and everything work fine.
Thank you eris for the prompt response :slightly_smiling_face:

BTW.
This means that my previous question:

Use IP address allow list for login attempts

Is also solved
Thank you

I will look into possibilities to check for ip block in log files
