I've downloaded openchurch-7.x-1.9-beta2-core and tried a fresh install.

After the page where I put the site details I get a 500 Internal Server error.
After a refresh (F5) the install finished and the site gets up and running (with a few bugs like some images not showing).

The problem I'm having is that I can't get into the admin account. I tried /admin, /?q=admin and /user/1 and I always get an "Access denied You are not authorized to access this page."

I can't log in to manage the site!!
I tried updating the Drupal core files to get the 7.14 update and installed again, but nothing.

Thanks in advance for the help!

PS: I saw that a 7.x.1.10-alpha1 is for download on openchurchsite.com, should I try to install that?
EDIT: Already tried 7.x.1.10-alpha1, the same. Internal Server Error and then the site gets up and running but can't log in as admin. :(

The login link typically is /user or ?q=user

Otherwise, you need to check your database to see if your admin user was created in the user table.

I tried /admin and /?=admin and it shows an "Access denied" page.

When I go to the db (users table) I see the admin user created as you can see in the attached images.
And in users_roles table, admin user has the administrator (3) role assigned.

Any ideas?

Actually, the login link is found at one of the links I posted before. Once you are logged into the site as a user that has admin rights, you can then visit th /admin link.

Well.. I feel kind of stupid right now..

I thought 'user' was a generic for 'whatever-your-username-is'.

I was wrong, and now I'm logged in.

I'm sorry for the trouble!!

And thank you very much for your help!!!

No default users was created during install?

Do I have to have a mail server setup just to create a user? I have tried creating a user, found the user in the users table, set it to active, added it in users_roles. Change the password to text from encrypted. But I can't login?

What I am doing wrong.
