Installed SS - everything went fine - went to start working on the site through the CMS and it won't accept my email address. Tells me that I still need to "sign up." I cannot find anywhere that I can do this and don't frankly remember anywhere asking me for an email address when I downloaded or installed!
Client waiting - please help!

Hi Headdweller,

During the installation process you would have defined a Administration user and password. This is the account that you can use to login in the first instance.

If for some reason this is causing issues and not working, then you can define a default admin user and password in your _config.php with the following line;

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