In most cases this is “http://localhost:5000”. If you’ve used the predefined Congether-Stack for Docker, the URL is probably “http://localhost”.
Navigate to the given URL, and you’ll see following page.
The page is separated into three segments.
In the segment “Administrator”, you’ll be asked for an administrator-account. Please type in your administrator-mail address and a given password with at least 5 charachters.
