cannot login into lamp not knowing what my user id or password is

Howard Huang's picture

I installed Virtual box into a windows xp notebook specifying ubuntu as os for the vm.  Installed the turnkey lampstack successfully into vm.  Updated with updates.  Then when launching lamp stack for the first time, it asks for my user name and password for "lamp:".  I put in "howard" which is the name for the Virtual box account.  During installation process of lamp, I was asked to furnish a user id.  I put in the root password for lampstack.  It gave me an error.  What is the user id?  Which password do I use?

Found another post where the login id is "root" and the password is the root password during setup.

Thanks.
