    Can someone post detailed instructions on how to enter SECRET_KEY and SECRET_SALT?

    Thanks

    It explains how to do it in the wp-config.php file that's included with 1.5.1 :

    // Change SECRET_KEY to a unique phrase.  You won't have to remember it later,
    // so make it long and complicated.  You can visit http://api.wordpress.org/secret-key/1.0/
    // to get a secret key generated for you, or just make something up.
    define('SECRET_KEY', 'put your unique phrase here'); // Change this to a unique phrase.
    define('SECRET_SALT', 'put your unique phrase here'); // Change this to a unique phrase.

    Also, if you don't enter these values, the first time you visit your admin dashboard, it will give you the values to enter.

    Haven't seen them there. Also, the last time I entered values (1.5 RC1) I was not able to use my site properly so I was forced to to delete whole installation (+ dropped db tables).

    Sorry - you should look at the wp-config-sample.php file that's included in 1.5.1

    No, I meant I didn't found any values when I visited Dashboard. Thanks anyway;)

    They're not on the dashboard. They used internally. If they were visable, it would make them worthless as they could be used to reverse the md5 hashes of your passwords.

    @tdjcbe - if you haven't configured the secret, then the dashboard prompts you with some values that you can enter into wp-config.php.
