A simple newbie JBoss question.

I've got JBoss 5.1.0 GA installed (from here) and running, and I'm trying to access the administration console:

What are the default credentials (if any) and where do you configure these? I didn't find an answer in the JBoss Installation And Getting Started Guide.

The server is running Ubuntu 9.10 but I believe that is irrelevant, as JBoss is installed outside package management.

The default is admin/admin.

You can find and modify this in:


Information can be found online (on page 3):
