New install of Distro SNG7-FPBX-64bit-1710-1 with login and password error

Hi everyone.

I’m a newbie so pardon the query if this is rudimentary and obvious.

I just did a fresh install (three times) and encountered the same issue. After the install and reboot, I get to a screen which shows:

Sangoma Linux 7 (core) (x86_64)
Kernel version 3.10.0-693.2.2. e17.x86_64
FreePBX Login:

I presumed the login would be generic like “admin” or “root” and entered the password I used during the previous stage in the install.

I consistently get an error “login incorrect”

May someone assist so this insanity can end? Thanks in advance.

The login name is root, and the password is as set during the install.
