So I decided to finally invest the effort and set up an LDAP to manage all my friends user accounts and their access to my service. Funkwhale was my little experiment and after some fiddling with docker (for some reason I cannot use portainer) it worked on the first try (was able to log into an account that only existed in the LDAP).
However when I logged into my account (using LDAP credentials) i started encountering some problems. This account existed before i set up LDAP and has music uploaded to a library already. Logging in worked fine and I can see my favorites however my Profile picture has turned black
I also cannot access my profile page but after some investigation it seems that the problem is that the username I am currently logging in with "cebbinghaus" (from LDAP) is not in the same case as my previous username "CEbbinghaus" set up through funkwhale itself. Most of the functionality works (playback, browsing, favorites) but just the PFP and profile sections seem to require a case sensitive match.
Could it be that this is just a bug or missed consideration?
