wordpress 3.3.1 installation anomalies

    The WP "five minute" installation progresses smoothly until I'm prompted for username and password which it does not accept, even though my input is identical to what I used for the configuration file prompt previously. So I give up, exit, and then re-link the URL, expecting to encounter the installation prompts again. Instead I get a page with a pretty picture and a variety of blogging features and a login link which when used again does not recognize the only username and password I've ever specified in the installation process. But this WP page is not what I was expecting or need. What I need is the page with a column on the left with links that enable administration, add-on capability, site design and so forth. Anyone know how to circumvent all these problems so that installation delivers me to the page I've described?

    Are you using a 1-click install? Instead of that you could manually FTP the Wordpress files onto your server. It's pretty quick (less than five minutes). Then go to yoursite.com/wp-admin and it should work.

    I've found that hosts that offer One Click Install, don't do manual installs well. I don't know why.
    But we can't even begin to help you without a link.

    It was a manual login. I'll have more information about problem later today.
