Unable to login as default admin password

Hi.
I installed Alfresco 3.4.d on Debian Lenny, and I can access to http://server:8080/alfresco, but I cannot login as admin/admin, I get the "Unable to login - unknown username/password" error.

Could you help me please?

Thank you very much!
Bye.

Re: Unable to login as default admin password

Check if are you trying to login with the correct admin password or not?

You can check the default password for admin at - tomcat\webapps\alfresco\WEB-INF\classes\alfresco\web-client-config.xml
Search for <initial-password> and try login with the password mentioned there.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Re: Unable to login as default admin password

Thank you for your answer.
The default admin password is admin:


      <admin>
         <initial-password>admin</initial-password>
      </admin>

I'm trying to login as admin/admin at http://server:8080/alfresco/faces/jsp/login.jsp but it is giving me that error yet.

Thank you very much!
Bye.

Re: Unable to login as default admin password

Is it giving you any error on console?

Have you integrated any authentication mechanism e.g LDAP etc?

Not in the console, where I can check exactly?

Absolutely not, I've just installed Alfresco and I configured nothing else.

Re: Unable to login as default admin password

I checked in the alfresco.log and catalina.out files but I don't see any new lines when I try to login.

Do you have any hints?

Re: Unable to login as default admin password

Have you properly created the database and made the relevant configuration in alfresco-global.properties file when you have installed alfresco?

Also, try running the below Out-of-the-box authentication webscript and see what it returns?
http://localhost:8080/alfresco/service/api/login?u=admin&pw=admin

Re: Unable to login as default admin password

I have this exact same issue.  Unable to log in to Alfresco or Share.  The password in the xml file you mentioned is the same password I'm using to login.
The results of your webscript above follows:
HTTP Status 404 -

——————————————————————————–

type Status report

message

description The requested resource () is not available.

Re: Unable to login as default admin password

Have you tried the following:

Used different browsers…

Ping for connectivity either from server to workstation, vice versa

Are you using any type of SSL connection?

Have you tried logging into http://fqdn:8080/share

Re: Unable to login as default admin password

Browsers tested:  Firefox and Internet Explorer with the same results.
I receive the login prompt on the share side, but when I try to login: "The remote server may be unavailable or your authentication details have not been recognized."  The error on the Explorer side is in my first post. I just tried the fqdn with the same results. I have confirmed the password to use in web-client-config.xml.
