Just try again, I have no problems with encrypted passwords (I am however using SHA-passwords, i. e. option 3).
As the result of your makeinstance call with say with instance directory foo you get a principals file foo/etc/principals.zcml There you will find an entry matching your username/password combination, something like <principal id="zope.manager" title="Manager" login="myusername" password="mypasswd" /> You can comment out this entry with <!-- principal id="zope.manager" title="Manager" login="myusername" password="mypasswd" / --> and replace it with a different entry, try calling foo/bin/zpasswd answer the question, you will get a new <principal .../> that you can cut/copy&paste to your principals.zcml file, then just restart Zope -Andreas On Thu, Jun 22, 2006 at 06:24:04PM -0400, Daniel Roberson wrote: > After installing zope and python, I then changed to scripts directory. > I then ran mkzopeinstance and created the > instance.
