Mumble Connection Problems

July 9, 2016

Aside from the usual incorrect server address/port problems, there are two common problems people run into. Also, almost all mumble servers are self signed. So if you receive the "This certificate is not trusted" message, it's usually okay to accept it anyways. On that topic, for murmur administrators, Mumble wrote up how to get a free signed cert here

1. This user is already registered

This happens when connecting to a server with your username, but from a new or reformatted computer.

Solution

Use a different username or ask the mumble admin to delete your user, so you can re-create it.

What Happened

When you register your username, it saves the credentials on your computer. This is all done in the background. When logging in from another computer, the credentials are not found. If you want to sign in from multiple computers you can go to Configuration -> Certification Wizard and export your current cert.

2. Continuously pops up the same window then fails

Sample error message "Sever presented a certificate which failed verification.."

Solution
  • For Windows 7 go to %AppData%\Mumble
  • For Windows XP go to %localappdata%\Mumble
  • Warning: This next step will delete all your saved connections and certificates.
  • Backup and Delete the .sqlite file, a new one will be generated and it should work.
What Happened

It looks like the mumble sqlite database got corrupted
