Ojs install problem

@asmecher : Hmm; sorry to bother…
But when I get to the login screen, I used the name/password I entered in the setup page - but it fails.
So I tried an alternate password that I had used before on the config screen, when setup was failing - and it worked.
So- It appears that the configuration had in fact set the user/password with that old value in previous attempts, and then failed on database issues, and in next setup attempts which corrected database items it did not use a newer password.
(My speculation…)
Anyway, I now got in with that old password, so in he next phase f exploration!
Thanks.

Hi @guthrie,

Did you get an “installation successful” message when you were able to complete the process?

Yes, on the last submit with the older password.
Is the admin email stored in a config file somewhere where it can be changed?

Hi @guthrie,

The admin email and password are stored in the database, in the users table.

Many thanks. I would not have been able to get it up without your help. :slight_smile:
