Thanks for the reply. I actually was using the correct password it was just that the PDF export was blanking the field when creating the PDF.
However, you gave me a clue where to look.
The work around I used was to update the _ss_environment.php with a working user name and password before I ran the install. This did the trick. I am not sure if this is what you are supposed to do, if so, I missed that instruction. If not, why do I need this work around?
Any how, on to the next issue, getting the Helicon Rewriter to work! Another post may follow!
