During the installation process, an administrator account and password were asked?
You should use this for the first logon.

Thank you for your answer @repi , I don't had administrator account and password asked during the installation process but I'm gonna try with admin/admin.

Thank you !

If you are using `atlas-run-standalone`  or went through the demo setup the test data comes with an admin account (user: admin, pass:admin)

Other than that, if you went through the normal setup flow, it should have prompted you to provide your admin user details.

Have fun with Confluence !!

Thank you for your answer ! It must be that (admin/admin) because I don't get prompted for the admin user details. I'm gonna try that once login the window came back (I stopped and started again the service and it takes time...).

out of curiosity how are you starting Confluence ? I may know some dev tricks to speed up the development on it :)

We start Confluence from the windows service panel :)

But we just saw that our server doesn't have enough RAM (2Gb) so that surely explains why it is so slow :)
