How to disable 2FA aka 2 Factor Authentification

Original thanks to @land12 for method in: https://forums.cyberpanel.net/discussion/comment/11902/#Comment_11902

Below is reusable way to do this for the main administrator with an id of 1

How to disable it
PASSWORD=$(cat /etc/cyberpanel/mysqlPassword);
DB_NAME=“cyberpanel”;
mysql -uroot -p${PASSWORD} “${DB_NAME}” -e “UPDATE loginSystem_administrator SET twoFA = ‘0’ WHERE id = 1;”

How to check if its enabled:
PASSWORD=$(cat /etc/cyberpanel/mysqlPassword);
DB_NAME=“cyberpanel”;
mysql -uroot -p${PASSWORD} “${DB_NAME}” -e “SELECT twoFA FROM loginSystem_administrator WHERE id = 1;”

Example:
root@server:~# PASSWORD=$(cat /etc/cyberpanel/mysqlPassword);
root@server:~# DB_NAME=“cyberpanel”;
root@server:~# mysql -uroot -p${PASSWORD} “${DB_NAME}” -e “SELECT twoFA FROM loginSystem_administrator WHERE id = 1;”

root@server:~#

Also requested that the official documentation is updated to reflect how to do this as it seems to be coming up alot lately.

I still can’t access our panel

como eu encontro o meu id?

Why I get Google 2FA activated after I install cyberpanel?
what SSH command to remove this feature from my server?

HELP CENTOS 7 2FA DISABLE CODE SSH

its a big problem
we cannot login to the control panel, we didn’t enable 2FA, why its automatically enabled when login?

Type your coI did this:
Go to the Security Basics page and log in to your Microsoft account.
Select Advanced Security Settings.
For the second-step verification, select Set to two-step verification to enable it, or select Disable two-step verification to enable it to disable it .

Yes, I also got the same error, I didn’t enable Google 2FA but they automatically enabled, and now I can’t login dc Panel. Do you have any solution?

One of our clients reports the same issue since today. Above fix in the DB does not work, because twoFA field is already 0:

MariaDB [cyberpanel]> SELECT twoFA FROM loginSystem_administrator WHERE id = 1
→ ;
±------+
| twoFA |
±------+
| 0 |
±------+
1 row in set (0.001 sec)

To be sure and stupid, I ran the script:
UPDATE loginSystem_administrator SET twoFA = ‘0’ WHERE loginSystem_administrator.id = 1;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.001 sec)
Rows matched: 1 Changed: 0 Warnings: 0

and after:
systemctl restart lscpd

Also did a yum update to make sure I use the most recent versions and changed the admin pass.

Still the 2FA field…

i hope this can help;
open with new browser (different with your daily browser) and open 8090 in browser
if it’s pop google auth field then delete your browser history (ctrl+shif+del if you use chrome and firefox) and choose everything. close your 8090 page and the re open. the google auth magically disappear … it’s work for me… not use the DB injection

Yes, did it for me! Thank you.

Yesterday this error came due to Fastly CDN being down.

  1. Go to the Security basics page and sign in with your Microsoft account.
  2. Select More security options.
  3. Under Two-step verification, choose Set up two-step verification to turn it on, or choose
    Turn off two-step verification to turn it off.
  4. Follow the instructions.

I used vpn to enter the admin panel, it helped me

I’m also facing the same issue, it’s not possible to access on the first log in with 2 factor authenticator, it’s funny, after the fresh installation could not log in, if can not log in, then could not white list the SSH port, then SSH could not work

I can’t access my SSH now, because after the installation need go inside the panel to allow thee SSH port, did you fixed this issue?

Can you remove this comment, this topic nothing related to Microsoft account

I followed it but it didn’t change someone help me

Yesterday this metod worked for me , but now it’s not working
This is what happen when I uesd the command

Usage: mysql [OPTIONS] [database]

Default options are read from the following files in the given order:
/etc/my.cnf /etc/mysql/my.cnf ~/.my.cnf
The following groups are read: mysql client client-server client-mariadb
The following options may be given as the first argument:
--print-defaults          Print the program argument list and exit.
--no-defaults             Don't read default options from any option file.
The following specify which files/extra groups are read (specified before remaining options):
--defaults-file=#         Only read default options from the given file #.

  --abort-source-on-error
                      Abort 'source filename' operations in case of errors
  --auto-rehash       Enable automatic rehashing. One doesn't need to use
                      'rehash' to get table and field completion, but startup
                      and reconnecting may take a longer time. Disable with
                      --disable-auto-rehash.
                      (Defaults to on; use --skip-auto-rehash to disable.)
  -A, --no-auto-rehash
                      No automatic rehashing. One has to use 'rehash' to get
                      table and field completion. This gives a quicker start of
                      mysql and disables rehashing on reconnect.
  --auto-vertical-output
                      Automatically switch to vertical output mode if the
                      result is wider than the terminal width.
  -B, --batch         Don't use history file. Disable interactive behavior.

                      with --comments.
  -C, --compress      Use compression in server/client protocol.

  -e, --execute=name  Execute command and quit. (Disables --force and history
                      file.)
  -E, --vertical      Print the output of a query (rows) vertically.
  -f, --force         Continue even if we get an SQL error. Sets
                      abort-source-on-error to 0
  -G, --named-commands
                      Enable named commands. Named commands mean this program's
                      internal commands; see mysql> help . When enabled, the
                      named commands can be used from any line of the query,
                      otherwise only from the first line, before an enter.
                      Disable with --disable-named-commands. This option is

  --sigint-ignore     Ignore SIGINT (CTRL-C).

                      default database is the one named at the command line.
  --pager[=name]      Pager to use to display results. If you don't supply an

                      etc. See interactive help (\h) also. This option does not
                      work in batch mode. Disable with --disable-pager. This

                      memory).

                      history file.
  -r, --raw           Write fields without conversion. Used with --batch.
  --reconnect         Reconnect if the connection is lost. Disable with
                      --disable-reconnect. This option is enabled by default.

                      processed as data that would otherwise be treated with a
                      special meaning by the parser. Specifically, this switch
                      turns off parsing of all client commands except \C and
                      DELIMITER in non-interactive mode (i.e., when binary mode
                      is combined with either 1) piped input, 2) the --batch
                      mysql option, or 3) the 'source' command). Also, in
                      binary mode, occurrences of '\r\n' and ASCII '\0' are
                      preserved within strings, whereas by default, '\r\n' is
                      translated to '\n' and '\0' is disallowed in user input.
