Two, presumably unrelated, problems in my installation with a shared hosting outfit.

1. The install process tells me that mod_rewrite is not enabled; I believe it is enabled, so I forced installation to proceed.
2. Now, the CMS login refuses to recognise the email address I gave during installation.

I have repeated the installation process, and got to the same result, so I am confident that this is a real problem and not the result of a keystroke error.

So: not what you would call a smooth install. Do I give up, or can anyone suggest a solution?

You can try hard code a member by adding this to your mysite/_config.php file

Security::setDefaultAdmin('test', 'someSecurePassword');

Add that and try and login with those details. When in try and reset your members password in Security section. Then logout and try again
