I installed SS on Windows 7 along with all the prerequisites.
When I go to my website's URL, I get an email and password prompt, as in the attached picture.
What should I do there? Should I create a user? I'm pretty sure I've never entered any email address when installing SS, and even if I did, the email and password I would have used doesn't work.

After repeatedly banging my head against the wall, I finally got it!
The email field is not really email, it's the username I entered during installation!
WHY is it so confusing???

Thank you! You saved my sanity. I had the same problem. Wasted a whole day trying to fix it. Was just about to reinstall everything a third time, when I came across your post. I would never have cracked this myself.

Please SS, do fix that!

Thank you, SS! Impressively quick done!
