    Unable to Log into admin Link to this post

    I am new to Silverstripe, so I apologize if my question/issue is silly.

    I am unable to log into admin. This is a fresh install. I logged in successfully right after I installed Silverstripe, but unable to get in after I tried again. I've tried multiple installs and have the same problem. I haven't done anything to the config or installed anything new. This was a very vanilla install.

    This is the message I get when I try to log in: That doesn't seem to be the right e-mail address or password. Please try again.

    logging in with admin and my standard password.

    // update

    I tried this on a new install, different server:

    1. Install SS >> worked
    2. Default site working properly
    3. Log into administration with admin/[password]
    5. log out of admin
    6. unable to log back into the administration

    You can try set a default admin by adding this to your mysite/_config.php

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

    Try logging in after adding that and reset the admin password.

    Thanks Willr! That worked. Is there an identified issue with the security SS? I've had this problem show up again and able to get around it with your fix. I have even had log in issues on the forum.
