I installed the latest version of SilverStripe and it all seems to work fine. It sends me to the "Installation Successful" page with my email and password, as well as a link to the CMS admin.

The problem is when I try to use that email/password combination, it doesn't work. It gives me the error "That doesn't seem to be the right e-mail address or password. Please try again.".

I try to recover my password with the link provided, but it says "Sorry, but I don't recognise the e-mail address. Maybe you need to sign up, or perhaps you used another e-mail address?".

Any help in this would be great -- I can't get anywhere until I can log into the CMS.

Maybe try hardcode the login into your mysite/_config.php

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

Then try and login with those details.

Worked like a charm -- thanks!

It turns out that another developer working on this project was a bit too excited to get going, so he had already created an admin account -- which is why I couldn't get the password right. :)
