Getting 401 "Unauthorized" error when trying to sign in for first time

I should be able to login

I try to login to my admin panel for the first time, however, it says the password is wrong, I’ve reset it to make sure I’m entering the correct password.

Please provide any relevant information about your setup.

Hello @Peanut1120,

Welcome to the Forest Admin community.

Sorry to hear that you have difficulties with your new project.

Just to be sure I get it right. You can properly log into and access your Forest Admin account, but you cannot start the project running on your machine?

If so, could you make sure you properly added values to the .env file?
Especially the ENV_SECRET that you can get back in the environment tab of your settings: Environments tab - Documentation

Hope this helps
