Web auth fails after restoring .duplicacy folder

Continuing the discussion from WEB GUI auth failing:

I tried the above workaround, but receive an Invalid password message after restarting and entering the password.
I’m using the same password that I used before in all my attempts.

With the original duplicacy.json the error is:
Failed to decrypt the testing data using the supplied password: cipher: message authentication failed

This is Duplicacy version 1.5.0.

This error means the password you just entered is different from the old password that was used to encrypt the testing data.

If you can’t recover the old password, delete encryption_data in duplicacy.json and restart the web GUI. Then delete all storages and recreate them with the same names. There is no need to change backups or schedules.
