KeePassHTTP is not running error #866
Some sort of auto/one-click log in to a website. Novice here, apologies.
When visiting a website I get the above error, despite enabling KeePassHTTP server in the KeePassXC options.
Is it to do with where I store the 'KeePassHttp.plgx' file? Their install instructions say it should be in /usr/lib/KeePass2, but this doesn't exist (and doesn't change anything if I create it).
New to KeepassXC, first time trying a password manager
KeePassXC - Version 2.2.0
Operating system: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
You don't need the plgx file. That one is for KeePass2, not for KeePassXC. The only thing you need to do is enable it in the settings (Tools->Settings->Browser Integration).
Thanks for the quick reply - it's led to the problem.
Now to try and work out why that is... I know that's out with this forum but any pointers welcomed!
KeePassXC exposes its HTTP API only via localhost. You cannot use it over any sort of non-local network interface, because that would allow an attacker to snoop your passwords. If you are using a VPN, you need to add an exception to not re-route traffic to and from 127.0.0.1.
