[OPEN-ILS-GENERAL] Evergreen 1.4 install problems after running staff client

I was able to install Evergreen on Ubuntu following the the instructions.
I was able to test with srfsh
The OPAC worked. 

However, I ran into problems once I installed and ran the staff client

When I ran the server test from the client, the server connection was
"OK", but the version verification failed. 

I assumed the problem related to step 5.III "make
STAFF_CLIENT_BUILD_ID=rel_1_4_0_0 install" 

I thought I ran this step exactly as written, but wondered if the build
ID needed to be  "rel_1_4_0_0_rc1" which is the title of the client
window. So I ran the command "make STAFF_CLIENT_BUILD_ID=rel_1_4_0_0_rc1
install" (probably a big mistake in retrospect.)

My other possible misstep is that I tried out the My account login in
the web opac using the admin user. At which point I was asked to change
my password for "admin" which I did. (probably another big mistake). 

As well as the staff client not working, the srfsh test does returns an
error "Unable to commincate with service open-ils.auth"

Running Settings-tester.pl does not return any errors.  

My questions are:

1. Is step 5.III where the server connection version problem being
caused or was there another potential issue?

2. Has changing the admin password caused any issues or is that OK as
long as I remember to use the new password?

3. Do instructions to restore the database on the page: 
still work for version 1.4?

4. Is there a step I could go back and start from to get back to a good
install, or do I start from scratch?
