Description Red Hat Bugzilla 2000-03-08 08:47:54 EST
When I accessed http://localhost/piranha' I got the message
  'the user piranha initially has no password set'
That's wrong, the initial password for user piranha is 'piranha'

Per agreement with Phil, reassigned to him for response.
Comment 3 Red Hat Bugzilla 2000-03-22 14:53:59 EST
Ok, this was down to a packaging mistake.
The initial package does indeed have a distributed passwd file in

The fix is of course to nullify the passwd using
	htpasswd -c -b /home/html/htdocs/piranha/secure/password ""

This was a packaging mistake
The newer rpms of the piranha GUI no not carry the password file but instead
look for it, if found they do nothing, else they create the passwd file with a
null passwd field
