No, right now, I filed a Jira ticket for it earlier today.

Not yet :) Feel free to file a Jira ticket.

You can change it from inside the GUI, the default should be "admin/ 
admin" I'm pretty sure. But, there's obviously a chicken and egg  
situation here, since traffic_manager / GUI doesn't work.

You want to play with the traffic_server binary. There is an help page  
for it if you run it with --help. The "best" option for debugging /  
testing is -T. E.g. to show all tracer messages related to http, you  
can run it with

     /usr/local/bin/traffic_server -T http.*

(the argument is a regex).

Yeah, there should be messages in /var/log/messages I'm pretty sure,  
and several logs in /usr/local/var/log/trafficserver, but looking at  
my test box, I'm not seeing the logs I'd expect.

It's a bit rough right now, but please have patience with us, and help  
us find the problems and file tickets, and we'll make fixes as soon as  
we humanly can.
