I've downloaded the Wordpress appliance turnkey-wordpress-2009.10-2-hardy-x86.iso and installed it in VMware 7.1 under Windows XP SP3. As NAT networking is used, I get a IP of 192.168.58.135 which works when viewed in Firefox.
The Wordpress appliance page on this website says that the default credentials are: "Webmin, SSH, MySQL, phpMyAdmin: username root, no password." However, when I hit Webmin or phpMyAdmin, I cannot log in using root with no password as it gets rejected.
I have used two other instances of the same appliance for a week without any problems. I only came across this problem when I tried to write a Wordpress backup script, and it was then that I found out I couldn't log into MySQL, phpMyAdmin or Webmin.
I must be doing something very dense, but I can't work out what at the moment :-\
Hopefully someone here will be able to help resolve this problem?
