    hi!!

    I have setup wordpress and it is showing me the login prompt.In installation step 2 it gives message as setup is creating database tables,but it does not create any random password and redirect me to the login page.

    Is there any default password for this?

    Thanks in advance.

    wordpress create a special password for you during installation and you may change the password to your own preference after logging in.

    In short there is no default password. WordPress creates a random one for you when you install, can change later.

    @podz With phpmyadmin you can only see the encrypted password. What encryption do you guys use to store the password?

    Yes, you can see the encrypted pw, but using that guide you can delete that encrypted password and enter a new one in plain text which the server then encrypts.
