Found a simple error, and I managed to fix it. Thought I would share my success in case it is needed.
Upon install, I found it to be really easy, no problems...however, per the instructions, I clicked on "My Profile" to change my password and got an error in the popup window : MYSQL SYNTAX "at line 1 ==".
I fixed this by simply going into my DB and editing my DB user "admin" by filling in the information and changing the password. After doing this, I logged in successfully. MySql table: "users".
