Magento Admin Reset Password

I found the best way to handle this was to access admin_user in phpmyadmin and locate the admin account and select MD5 and type in a new password.

From Magento's Wiki:

Resetting Admin Password

It seems like the password must be typed and not copy/paste at least on the install part. good to know ;o)
The default login is : admin The default password is : 123123
If you are having troubles and want to reset it to a different password, just run at your sql database:
  1. SELECT * FROM admin_user;
Then, find the username you want to modify in the listing provided - ‘admin’ in this example. Then, to update the password, type:
  1. UPDATE admin_user SET password=CONCAT(MD5('qXpassword')':qX') WHERE username='admin';
‘qX’ would be changed to whatever you want it to be and same goes for ‘password’
You can also do this in phpMyAdmin, find the admin_user field and choose MD5 when updating password.
