Sitecore 8.2 Login Help


I have never used Sitecore before so I am a complete novice and this is probably a very silly question.

I know that Sitecore 8.2 is an old version but there is a good training book on O'Reilly called SitecoreCookbook which uses this version so I decided this would be a good place to start.


Using the book and the Sitecore installation guide I was able to successfully install Sitecore and it is asking me for a user name and password to login to Experience Platform.

Which is where I am having problems as I'm not sure what the username and password should be? I'm using a free trial license so i have tried using my Sitecore dev log in, didn't work. When setting up the server it was set to use a local account rather than AD is this is for training/test purposes, so I tried login in using those details. Still nothing working. Lastly, because I wasn't sure what else to try I used the SQL authentication login that was used to connect to the database server when I installed Sitecore. 

Is anyone able to help me ?
