Can't log onto demo :/
Sorry to bother everyone, but I can't seem to log onto the
initial demo with the usual admin/admin uid/pw (or any of
the other demo uids/pws for that matter). I've installed
other basic CGI scripts before so it's not something silly
like forgetting to upload ASCII or doing the CHMODs
incorrectly. :) The path to PERL should be correct, I have
the correct URL, I just keep getting the error "invalid
username/password" for the demo log on. ?? :( I did no
edits besides what was in the readme...

The response below is taken from the FAQ noted below under "Troubleshooting"

Default passwords don't work

The problem is caused by your server encrypting the default passwords differently. What you need to do is create new passwords. This can be done as follows:

1. Erase all entries in the password file.
2. Set $auth_allow_default = 1;
3. Set @auth_default_permissions = (1,1,1,1,1);
4. Go to db.cgi?uid=default
5. Go to admin and add your own users.

That should be it! Reset the authentication back to what you want when you are done.

Hope this helps
