I downloaded swiftriver 0.5.0 from this link https://github.com/ushahidi/Swiftriver/downloads. Copied it to my server and ran the friendly installer. It told me that everything was fine. Making sure i wrote down my credentials i finished the installation. I could not log on with user=admin and the password I had just chozen.
I found out that my db was empty. which ofcourse explained why i could not logon.
using apache 5.3.8 for further info see http://micheltenhove.nl/swift/info.php
Any thoughts on this?
