I just signed up for hosting through DreamHost this morning and unfortunately I have not been able to access the initial web panel. When I am at https://panel.dreamhost.com/index.cgi I have attempted in the username field both the email address I registered with as well as the FTP username sent to me in the welcome email.
In the password field I am using the exact FTP password sent to me in the same email. I have not been able to access the panel to change the password so this temporary password should still be in place. Any combination I use gives me "Error! Username or password is incorrect."
I can think of 3 possibilities- something with the account is still pending, the password is wrong or has been locked out, or I'm just not doing something right. I would greatly appreciate any tips or advice so that I can get in and get everything started!
