Unable to login in newly installed OpenEMR 5.0.2 on localhost

Observing all the instructions, I successfully installed OpenEMR on localhost in Windows 10 for the first time. Installation was perfect. But I get ‘Invalid username or password’ message when I attempt to login.
I also reset password to ‘pass’ using the database but no login success.
I’ve installed the latest AMPPS 3.9 (apache, mysql, php-7.3). Suggestions please.

look at your logs
what version of mysql?

Hi Sandra,
MySQL 8.0.18
Apache 2.4.41
PHP 7.3.11

and your logs? what do they say?

One point may be important to mention. The php.ini does not have register_globals = Off by default. The setup required that it should be off, but it was already detected as ‘off’. So I didn’t add it manually.
I do not understand the logs syntax. Could you please identify the problem from the logs? I am posting them here.

These are just the standard general logs
The logs above look fine

The other problem may be the issue with MySQL8. It may not have accepted your change to pass. It normally should not accept a 4 letter password I think.
Also, It is hard to get openemr to work with Mysql 8. At least it was for me. Check out other threads here. check the database logs. I don’t know how to check those. Those are in the tables themselves.

Thanks Sandra for your support. I will update you if I find a solution.
