    I've just finished installing Plesk 7.5.3 and can not log-in using the username/password described in the Installation Guide (i.e., admin/setup). Have I done something wrong?

    (/etc/psa/.psa.shadow contains the default password.)

    See the last post in this thread by Traged1:

    http://forum.plesk.com/showthread.php?threadid=24413&highlight=admin+AND+password+AND+mysql

    This will show you how to reset the admin password in mySQL from the shell prompt. Since the .psa.shadow file shows the proper password, then it appears that the password stored in mySQL must not match...

    Be careful of spaces and quotes and such.

    Where he has 'PLESK_PASSWORD' you should replace this with the default password so it will match the .psa.shadow file.

    Rebooting the server fixed the problem. Perhaps that detail should be added to the Installation Guide. (The the Installation Guide directs the reader to access the interface directly after finishing installation.)

    Yeah, rebooting is not always required, I do it just out of habit on any server when I make any major updates/installs....
