Description

In the Redmine Installation wiki (for 1.4+) available at http://www.redmine.org/projects/redmine/wiki/RedmineInstall, the default admin password is not correct.

After installation, attempting to log into redmine with user 'admin' and password 'admin' results in failure.

Workaround:
Run the follow query on the database (mysql specific - you may need to alter for another dbms):
update users set hashed_password ='fa2d1dc9a9d2982c3ef8cc3b5d985d1c54c9a064' where login='admin';

The hashed password fa2d1dc9a9d2982c3ef8cc3b5d985d1c54c9a064 is 'turnkey' in plain text.

I found this workaround here - http://www.redmine.org/boards/2/topics/27775.
