I just installed SilverStripe using WebMatrix. Install went OK. Access to the CMS admin panel is asking for an email id and pw. I was never asked for that during the installation. How do I enter this information? Thank you, Rich

You should have been asked for a username and password in the install.php file. For now you can hardcode a default admin by adding this in your mysite/_config.php file.

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

Thanks for the reply. Yes, that did the trick!
