Hi David,

After thinking about your question, I did follow the instructions in 
INSTALLATION, which said to change the admin password
from what had been set by default to one's own choice via: ' ** NOTE: Replace 
vcluserpassword with your own password!',
So, yes, I actually did change that password to one of our choosing, but not 
since then.  We were able to login using that changed 
password (after following the multi-step creation + hash procedure..) only one 
time and I used that opportunity to do some basic 
configuration.  But after logging out, I've been unable to log back in since.

A colleague suggested dropping the user table or localauth table and recreating 
them, following vcl's instructions for db installation,
but I haven't gone there yet.

Any and all suggestions or hints are welcome!


All the best,
Randy.
