Hello,

i have a problem with the setup of a vulnerable Webapp. I followed the instructions and got to the login screen.
The instructions say that i have "to verify that the query is running correctly on the database" by entering a bogus set of credentials.
This is where I get an error message (see below). I already checked the setup and used the search function in the forums but didn't find any solution.

Code:
Server Error in '/' Application.
