Hi Brian, thank you for the quick reply. I just tried putting the md5 hash in the LocalConfiguration.php, with no success. For example, I tried an md5 hash of 'daringfireball', which is 409f7a74323d003325443aa7930e6f2e. I put 409f7a74323d003325443aa7930e6f2e into LocalConfiguration.php and entered daringfireball as the password in the install tool login page. This gave me the error:

Login failed
Given password does not match the install tool login password. Calculated hash: $P$Cfr7ExLKg6E/hi2cukkkzpjgx.KlWG.


I tried a few more times, with daringfireball as the password, and each time the login page error gives a different calculated hash:


So, I am wondering, if the hash changes every time I enter the password, how will the hash from the login page ever match the hash I put into LocalConfiguration.php?
