    Thanks for what looks like a very promising product! I have the latest version and it asks me for username and password during the boot up. Is this correct? On that case what is the username and password?

      Hey Erik,

      You’ll need to provide more details about your issue. The username and password are provided on the getting started page (user: pi password: raspberry). I’m guessing you have a screen plugged into the raspberry pi? You only need power and ethernet plugged into the raspberry pi and all other configuration is done from another computer by going to https://unifipi.local

    Thanks for making a nice image for Unifi, seems promising!
    I have a problem though.
    When i start up the pi, for the first time, i cant log into the Unifi Controller, but i can get into Webmin. I am getting to the part where i have to make an exception for the HTTPS certificate, but after that, it just loads forever. And restarting the pi doesnt help. Any idea why?

      Hey Jonas,

      That’s interesting, You should check a few things:
      * What version of Pi are you using? (UniFiPi officially supports Pi 2 and 3B, if you are using an older version give it 10 minutes to load or so)
      * Have you tried another, higher current, power supply with your Pi? (Sometimes not having enough power can cause odd issues, even check the cable. I’ve had dud cables before, causing weird issues…)
      * What speed is your SD card? Is it corrupt? Is it old? Have you tried a different one?

      Let me know how you get on!

        Hey, thanks for the quick answer!

        I am using a Pi 3B, so i guess its good.
        The power supply is rated at 2 amps, but i will try switching it with a stronger one.
        The SD card is the one that came with it, 16 gigs and class 10, so i dont think thats the problem, but who knows.
        You will hear back from me when i have tried switching stuff 😀
