Hi Guys,

Immediately after installation of SilverStripe I am redirected to the login page. However, upon entering my UN and PW (of which I created moments before) it prompts "That doesn't seem to be the right e-mail address or password. Please try again.". I have tried 4 reinstalls.

Help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advanced,

Hi Moonlight,

Edit: I should ask - What version of SS?

Whilst I don't have an answer for you about the problem you are seeing (usernames and password "Just Work" for me on install) you are able to set a default user name and password in configuration so that you can keep moving without re-installing everytime.

Put the following in to mysite/_config.php


This will force the default user admin user to be 'admin' , with a password of 'password'.

Anyway, this should get you past this problem without needing to get dirty in the database to ensure that your initial user has been created.

Excellent, it's all sorted now.

Thank you very much Owen.
