Hi. I installed WEBPI.
I clicked on the 'Content Management System' link.
It asks me to log in but I can't. I don't understand what e-mail and password have I to fill in. And I had the same problem with the demo version. I couldn't access.

Normally, on installing SilverStripe, you are asked to fill in an e-mailaddress and password for your administrator account. That's what you'll use to login onto the SilverStripe CMS

I've never used web pi, so I'm not sure what happens there, and why you don't have the admin account, but in situations like this you can set a (temporary) admin login in your mysite/_config.php like this (use your own admin emailaddress and password):

Security::setDefaultAdmin('adminemail', 'password');

OK, problem solved. Thank you.
The problem was that he asked me the e-mail, but in reality I had to fill in the admin.
