Hi @masundacuthberts,

Can you please confirm where are you experiencing this error and how to replicate it? Without any basic information, I’ll not be able to provide any suggestions based only on the given.

Hello, @masundacuthberts

This error will usually appear when you’re using the API. If you’re using the API you can check the documentation here:

I will also recommend you to as per KFSys’s reply share the exact steps on how to reproduce the issue.


  • Thanks for your interest in helping me…

    Actually I followed this

    ( )

    tutorial and this part

    ( Answer Y for yes, or anything else to continue without enabling.

    VALIDATE PASSWORD PLUGIN can be used to test passwords
    and improve security. It checks the strength of password
    and allows the users to set only those passwords which are
    secure enough. Would you like to setup VALIDATE PASSWORD plugin?

    Press y|Y for Yes, any other key for No:
    If you answer “yes”, you’ll be asked to select a level of password validation. Keep in mind that if you enter 2 for the strongest level, you will receive errors when attempting to set any password which does not contain numbers, upper and lowercase letters, and special characters, or which is based on common dictionary words. )

    A “LAMP” stack is a group of open-source software that is typically installed together to enable a server to host dynamic websites and web apps. This term is actually an acronym which represents the Linux operating system, with the Apache web server. The site data is stored in a MySQL database, and dynamic content is processed by PHP. In this guide, we will install a LAMP stack on an Ubuntu 20.04 server.
    • Hello, @masundacuthberts

      Thanks for getting back.

      This might be a temporary issue. I’ve just followed the tutorial on a new droplet and I could not replicate the issue on my side. May I ask if you’re still experiencing the issue?
