    When you first install and it shows you the admin username and password, it works *right away*.

    If it doesn't then please try re-installing. you don't have to wait for the email.

    Also, do not put the www in the address when you install it.

    You may also wish to review your error logs as well. It could be that mail from the root domain was rejected on the receiving end, or perhaps a local configuration problem.

    In PHPMyAdmin, browse the contents of the wp_users table (looking at the content of the rows not the structure of the table).

    Edit the row for the user ("admin" or whomever).

    The "user_pass" field value will be the MD5 hash of the password. Delete the hash and type in your temporary password e.g. apple2008 then (important!) from the 'Function' dropdown list select "MD5". Now, click on "Go" to have PHPMyAdmin apply the MD5 function to the plaintext value apple2008


    You should now be able to login via wp-admin using the apple2008 password. Obviously, change the apple2008 password immediately, especially since it has been pasted here!
