Hi,
I am new to activiti, as for many first time developers ;-).
I installed activiti using the manual. After that i started the demo and went to http://localhost:8080

All fine. When I tried to login using kermit,gonzo or fozzie I get the error message:
"The system was unable to log you in".

I looked up the h2 database and it contains the three users.
I looked up the catalina log file and it says:

There was one issue on this forum with nearly similar error but it was about port numbers.
Finally I looked at the folders:
C:\activiti-5.0\apps\apache-tomcat-6.0.29\webapps\activiti-rest
and there was no surf.xml there.

Any suggestions or solutions in order to login?
regards
