Deleting the users.db file should reset the
username/password to
admin/admin as you say. You'll need to make sure that
the user as which
your webserver runs (normally "nobody", "www-data" or

has permission to create a new users.db file though.
That is, do a
"chmod -R a+rw gsdl/etc" and see if it helps.
