Server Error (500) when creating user accounts

I get this 500 server error whenever I try to create new user on my Kobo own server.


I encounter this error whenever I create user accounts in my own server.



@jvincent, pinging in @ks_1 @stephenoduor for your support.

Is the account actually created, despite the HTTP 500 error?

If that is the case - you most probably do not have SMTP email properly configured.

Maybe the system could be updated so that it gives a more meaningful error message, without breaking? :slight_smile:

Hi Maric,

Thank you for your response. I was able to solve this, basically the smtp user has 2FA enabled. I have “enabled access to less secure apps” on the smtp user account and created a custom app password and updated my smtp settings on the kobo app. Everything works after that. :slight_smile:

Thank you as well, @Kal_Lam for your quick response on this.



@jvincent, :clap: :heart: :partying_face:
