What is the default Install Administrator Password / User?

Citadel takes a bit of a different approach here than you might know. We don't provide a user/password common to all default installs, to avoid the install getting “Hacked” (remember that MS SQL Server issue some years ago?). Instead, you choose during setup which user is going to become the administrator once his account is created. By default (using citadel internal accounts; non Host-Auth mode) you just press Create after entering the Username and Password on the WebCit Login Prompt.

If you're running in Host-Auth-Mode, the PAM-User with the Username you selected will become Administrator on first login. Your general System password (whether it may be stored inside /etc/shadow or in an LDAP tree) will grant you access to your citadel.
