    Joomla Install - Admin Password

    I've just installed Joomla to a web host and it has gone through very well. However when attempting to put in the admin password I set up it wont let me.

    I've done this 4 times now just in case I had made a mistake and it is definately telling me the 'Username and Password do not match'.

    Not sure what I can do - any advice welcome and appreciated,

    GJE

    Never mind - all sorted now. Not sure why it wasn't working but I ran an SQL command on the database which I found on a website

    All working now.

    That really scares me. If I told you to run "DROP " and append your database name, would you do that?

    A little knowledge and a little more power is such a dangerous thing.

    LOL - yes I agree. Still it worked and it was only for testing.
