Incorrect username and/or password! 2 years 11 months ago #64851

I have completed the install step using locallhost,
all went well, then at

http://localhost/limesurvey/admin/admin.php

I'm getting

Incorrect username and/or password!

even though I am using the same values as defined in

/limesurvey/config.php

//installation Setup
$defaultuser = 'limesurvey';
$defaultpass = 'XXXXXX';

I have verified this login/password successfully logs into mysql OK
This is a fresh one day old install of ubuntu 11.10/apache2/mysql/php5
After several re-installs of limesurvey from scratch I throw my hands up !
Any suggestions ?

Maybe the permissions of the folders are not right and LS can't access the pw? Just a guess. Because sounds really strange...
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

there really should be a way to activate intense logging to suss out the actual cause of such errors - inside of file :

limesurvey/config.php

$debug = 3;

seems to do nothing regarding upping the logging level for this issue
The apache logs also say nothing about errors.

Previously, as per doc, I did a

chmod -R 755 /limesurvey/tmp
chmod -R 755 /limesurvey/upload

no help. Still searching for answers .....

SOLUTION - once install is complete - any edit to file

limesurvey/config.php

regarding

$defaultuser

is ignored - you must login after install using same value in config.php which existed prior to install - success at last !
Thanks holch
