Connection Corrupted?

Hi Jason,

I seem to have gotten myself in a pickle. I just purchased the new MySQLi module. Was setting up a new website and having trouble getting it all connected - user error mainly- can not use new WA MySQLi for connecting PowerCMS - using Dynamic MySQLi Connection does not give option to select DB in the CMS setup window drop down - but connects fine with just regular Dynamic MySQL Connection.

Also had to delete cache to gain access to Dynamic MySQL Connection after the install of MySQLi- I figured out later.

Anyways Problem -
I had everything working once. So uploaded all CMS files, ran through the wizard webpages setting everything up went fine.

When I started having problems (user error) in an effort to fix I just start over and deleted all of the WA files on the remote server and in local view. Then started over.

Now I can create the Dynamic MySQL Connection - connecting it to a new empty DB (works fine).
Create a php test page (works fine)
in Dreamweaver "Add Content to PowerCMS" (works fine)
Uploads all of the files
Go to view in browser - but then instead of going through the Wizard again it takes me to the login page. Of coarse I have not used the wizard again so there is no login "Super Admin" created in the DB.

Looking at the DB it has the pcms2 tables in it now. But maybe I need to manually add me as a Super admin...? and what info and where do I enter that?
