confluence setup problem - login not possible

hi

I installed an evaluation version of confluence and something did not work during setup. Now when I start it, I only get the login screen but did not define any username to login and I'm stuck.

Any advice, please?

thx

During the install you should have been prompted to setup a user account:

You can try the following to reset the admin password to your confluence instance:
