I'm a newbie to webfaction, so I apologize if I'm asking something I should figure out on my own! I've been trying to setup a web2py website with a notable lack of success!

First, is there a step-by-step set of instructions anywhere for bringing up a website running a web2py app? It took me a while to get to where I am - and now I'm stuck; see below - and it would be very helpful to have a "do this; then do that; then..." set of instructions.

If not, here's where I need some help now. I have a website set up, I have a web2py application, created using the install script on the webfaction wiki. When I created the application, I entered an administrative password. Assigning the application to the website seems to have worked, as the web2py Welcome screen appears when I access the website in a browser. But...when I try to get to the web2py Admin interface, it rejects the password I entered. I know the password is the correct one. How do I get to the web2py Admin interface?

Thanks in advance.

Please make sure that you are accessing your web2py admin interface via https.

Access to the admin panel is prohibited by default on web2py, unless it is from an https session.

Ah, thanks. I'll start down that path.
