git-server WEB won't login on 7.4 - authtoken is empty or null

I'm trying to configure git-server with AccuRev 7.4 on Linux.  When trying to access <ip-address>:8080/git-server, I'm prompted with the expected login page, but upon logging in with accurev-admin user, I can see a brief flash of the configuration page and then I am immediately logged out and sent back to the login page.  The git-server.log suggests that the "bridge" user information isn't correct.  Besides the /home/acserver/git-server/conf/ file, I am unaware of anything else that needs to be configured.  I created a user "git-bridge" and added a password in the, and it made no difference and still states "authtoken is empty or null".  Does anybody have git-server working with 7.4 and can give me a hand?  Thanks!
