Description Martin Östlund cendio 2024-02-23 12:41:15 CET
If an administrator chooses not to provide a password for tlwebadm during tl-setup (or missing that step by just hitting enter), no information is given what the outcome of the tlwebadmin.service will be.

> Web Administration
> ==================
> The default web administration username is "admin". Please enter the
> desired password for this user, or leave unchanged to skip this step.
> The ThinLinc web administration is running on port 1010 (https) on this
> server.

> Web Administration Password? 

tl-setup will happily continue if one does not provide a password. Perhaps we could inform the administrator that the service cannot be started, or force them to set a password?

Notice that we do log the reason for the service not being able to start properly:
> 2024-02-23 11:25:16 ERROR tlwebadm[144538]: No password configured. Exiting.
