Can't login to admin

    I installed PhpWiki. When I go to the admin page to login it says I'm putting in the wrong username and/or password. I tried typing it in and I tried C&P'ing it from the confirmation email. Nothing seems to work. How can I login?
    I was told to ask if there's a back door I can use to get into the wiki admin panel since my username and pw aren't working.
    Right now the FTP has the permissions set at 755. Do I need to change the permission settings to be able to login as an admin? Any help would be nice...

      I have this problem as well.

      I install the wiki with Fantastico, or manually, and I am unable to log in to admin.php.

      What should I check? I have tried everything and am ready to give up on this wiki.

      I had the same problem. The reason was that PHP was not configured to support the crypt function. After setting ENCRYPTED_PASSWD = false in the config.ini file all was OK.

      As I known PHP configuration can be queried by PHP scripts. I don't known why the people at phpWiki are not providing a better error message.
