rstudio server "unauthorized user" error on google vm

I have a Google VM with Rstudio server installed. Everything was working fine and I was able to get in with my username and password. I haven't used this VM for a couple months and now I tried again. I am getting the Rstudio login page when typing <server-ip-address>:8787, but when I enter my username and password I get the "unauthorized user" error. I'm not sure what changed.

The only similar post I found was this Cannot log in to AWS RStudio Server and Workbench, instead see 'Error: Unauthorized user.', which turned out to be an AWS problem.

I can SSH into the server with my user. It is not a password problem (since then you get a different error). Any suggestions?

I managed to solve my own question, see the answer here.
