default password not working on new install of eZPlatform

Hi all.

I have followed the tutorials at on localhost (MAMP) on my Macbook

as it seems a really good tutorial for getting started. There did not seem to have been any problems using the that is mentioned, but when I try to enter the UI, the default password (username:admin / password:platform is not accepted. The error message that comes up is 

"An unexpected error occurred"

and nothing happens when I click "reset password" either. 


Can anybody help?

the default password is "publish" as should be what is mentioned in

forgotten/reset password is not implemented yet, but unsure why you are getting exception, stack trace by enabling dev and checking your browser dev toolbar will be helpful to understand what is going on.

Great thanks. 
I was actually going to try to set the Symfony debug toolbar to visible. In previous (legacy) versions I think I added a .htaccess file in the web directory, to make Dev environment active. I have tried changing the ENV setting in web/index.php but this did not bring up the debug toolbar. It is not obvious. Could you help me?

Maybe this should be added to an easily found section of the documentation or the tutorial, as many people will surely want to be able to use this toolbar


I should also post this link, as the issue has been reported on JIRA
