Hi Craig,

When the installation process asks if you want admin pages installed you
have to type "true" rather than "y" or "yes". It should then ask you to
enter the password. Another way to change it is to enable "status" in
the main.cfg file (if it is not already enabled) in the etc directory of
Greenstone and then access the admin page via the web interface with the
default login:

Username: admin
Password: admin

There should be an option in there somewhere to allow you to change the
password.

Hope this helps,
Sam
