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

In any case if you make the values be:
You will be able to log in with user "admin" and password "pass".
