How do you recover or reset your admin password?

I think this will not work anymore, because in Joomla 1.5 an additional $salt parameter is used to encrypt the password. In the usertable the password is stored in the format:

$encript:$salt

so simple md5 hashed passwords will not work anymore...

Worked for me

It worked for me when I tested it. Mark Dexter 15:08, 4 October 2008 (EDT)
