1.  create a file called "access" (no suffix)
2.  place it in the "data" directory
3.  In the file, type a username followed by a colon followed by a password
4.  Re-start the server
5.  Login with the new info

Subject: [Setup] Re: Initial admin's password not working

I have a similar problem - I have installed Plone 2.5, Zope 2.9 using the Debian Etch "plone-site" package.  I imported my site from an older (Plone 2.1 / Zope 2.8) instance.  I can not login using the login screen in Plone.  I have to go to the ZMI, login there and then I have admin rights on my site. 

I have tried what is suggested in http://plone.org/documentation/faq/locked-out.  Both methods complete without error, but I still can not login.  I don't get any error when my login fails, only that the username and password were incorrect. 

Does anyone have suggestions?
Thanks in advance
