I successfully installed Xerte Online Toolkits on a web server. Authentication is set up to be through db. However, when trying to login as admin, nothing happens when I click the login button. I've triple-checked the username and password, and am otherwise not seeing any errors.

I know that the following is in the guide's FAQ, but it is not clear what the first answer refers to:
Q: I cannot log in as administrator
A: The administrator account only works on management.php, not index.php
A: You did not set admin_username and admin_password when setting up the site

Any help is greatly appreciated!

The back-end (where you can change the authentication, and in case of db create users) can be reached by navigating to
<url of xerte install>/management.php

You can login on this page using the admin credentials (and only here)
