No, this means you apparently copied over the catalog template without
running the "makecat" program. Normally makecat substitutes a username and
encrypted password for those markers.

In other words, you never had this particular catalog working in the
normal way. I don't know how you got access.gdbm in place with the
right values. Perhaps you have a MySQL access table?

In any case if you make the values be:

admin	pauONM/HSu9pM

instead of 


You will be able to log in with user "admin" and password "pass".
