admin / login error problem - HELP!

Post by sfo » Sat Oct 15, 2005 2:21 pm

I am a "greenhorn" at this.  I was able to get Joomla installed on the server (bluedomino).  I documented the admin login and password but I am not able to login now.  It gave a default password that appeared to be 'generated', so I kept it the same and wrote it down.  Please Help. I am at a standstill Right Now. :'(

Passwords are case sensitive.  And if that doesn't work...

A reinstall seems to be in order.

If you haven't generated content yet, purge your database, purge your joomla! directories, and reinstall.

And it might be advisable to assign a password when you have the opportunity instead of keeping the default one which is difficult to remember and is case sensitive.
