Change Jellyfin IPSee original GitHub issue
When the IP address or hostname of your jellyfin server changes you have to update it in the settings.json file. There is no clear indicator of this in the settings and even worse is if your account is a jellyfin account the error just states incorrect username or password
A settings options under the jellyfin tab for
local jellyfin address which could work the same as the external URL option (If my understanding of that option is correct and it also just updates the json)
Also a better error message along the lines of
Cannot connect to jellyfin server when trying to log in.

The settings.json works fine with the container name for me. This issue is about adding the setting to the web gui
That was in reply to the other commenter who had trouble reaching it via jellyfin docker network hostname. Forgot to quote sorry for the confusion
Where is the settings.json file normally located? Ive installed with the AUR package, which worked great right up until the server location changed.
Edit: Located, for anyone else its /usr/lib/jellyseerr/config, which is owned by root, and contains the settings.json owned by jellyseerr. It would have been convenient if it was able to locate the service at localhost, rather than requiring a specific IP.
Mine finally worked, just put http://hostname:port if you are running docker.
