Unable to login Virtualmin as rocky on a Rocky Linux 9.2 server

Hi, I’ve just installed Virtualmin on a Rocky Linux 9.2 server but I’m unable to login as rocky.
When I entered username and password and then pushed the Sign in button, the system said “Login failed. Please try again.”
I’m new to Rocky Linux so I have no idea for that.
In the case of Ubuntu Linux, I was simply able to login as ubuntu.
Anyone knows any idea…?

Try root which is the default username for the OS.

Thank you for the reply.
I set the root’s password and successfully logged in as root.
I thought I could login as rocky on Rocky Linux because I used to login as ubuntu on Ubuntu.

You would have to have a user on the OS called Rocky and it might need root priveledges.
