Description:If you define a password during AsteriskNOW installation that contains a percent sign ( % ) as its first character, then this password will not be usable for access to the web user interface as the user admin even though it is usable by the OS for the admin user account.


I realize that this is not the same as the OS password, and this is actually the one set as 'secret' in manager.conf for the AsteriskNOW web ui. I have done three different installations on Beta 5, and all exhibit the same behavior when passwords beginning with % are used.

The symptom I see is just perpetual display of the "Logging in..." guide text.  You can actually recreate this issue by entering admin and any string beginning with %

The login attempt will hang indefinitely...
