I loaded moodle without any problems except that the installation step of creating an admin account didn't occur!
I used the admin,admin cobo to gain access from the login page and then I'm redirected to the main page but it states at the bottom of the page that I'm not logged in... and hence no admin privliges. When I return to the login page to try logging in again, I note that at the bottom of the page it says I'm logged in as "admin user" ????
Hence the vicious circle of logging in - but not logging in and then not being logged in... etc...
Should I reinstall?
