I have setup an OSQA VM, on VirtualBox hosted on Ubuntu 12.04, and cannot login to the web application as admin. I tried admin/admin, root/without password, admin/without password none of these work. and this info is not in the README with the appliance. Any help will be appreciated.

I think this is awesome that this appliance is indeed available and saves me so much time setting up OSQA.

Seemed to install fine. Boots up, I access it with Google Chrome, I get the home screen, select login, no matter what user name/password I enter it tells me "Invalid ID or password". What are the defaults. Very frustrated.

You need to login and complete the initialisation (i.e. firstboot scripts). That is where you set the admin password.

Same problem here.


firstboot can set sql/webmin/ssh login only. Not osqa admin login.

But I am surprised that there is not firstboot script to allow you to set the password. AFAIK there should be...!

If there isn't then my guess would be 'admin' and 'turnkey' but I have no idea TBH...

Sorry not much help really...
