  1. After I create the admin & log off.. it doesn't let me log back into admin.. so I am stuck at 17mins into this tutorial… Can anyone help me?? When I log back in.. the only way is to use the original logins given to me by the hosting company..
    I check & it tells me that admin is created.. but I can't go any farther into the tutorial..
