Problems logging into SuiteCRM8

Hi
I have done a fresh install of suitecrm8 on CentOS7 with mysql 5.7.33, installation was clean. When I try to login it says login credentials incorrect. Following are the entries in the prod.log

[2022-04-08 07:06:49] request.INFO: Matched route “app_login”. {“route”:“app_login”,“route_parameters”:{"_route":“app_login”,"_controller":“App\Authentication\Controller\SecurityController::login”},“request_uri”:“http://crm.cogencis.com/login",“method”:"POST”} []

I have verified that mysqlnd, PDO and pdo_mysql are already enabled in php,ini and loaded in memory when I run the command php -m.

The admin password does not have any special characters, just letters and numerals.

However using the same admin credential I am able to login to http://suitecrm/legacy/index.php
