Magento seems to have forgotten my admin user/password

I created a user/password for Magento admin. I have successfully logged in using this user/password in the past. But recently, I tried to log in with this user/password and Magento reported ‘Access Denied’. I have the user/password saved in a RoboForm Safenote, so I know that I’m using the right user/password. Anyone know what’s going on?

Update: I just checked the admin_user table, and it looks like my admin user is missing. There appears to be a master admin user. Does anyone know the password for that user? Is there a secure way to send that password to me? Thanks.

Nevermind. The problem was that I imported my sample data after I installed, and it overwrote my admin user. There really ought to be something in the installation guides about importing the sample data.

Same problem, how do you fix it? Change the admin entry in the database or something? Thanks!

Update...nevermind found it. I believe Moshe (sorry if this is the attributed to the wrong user or misspelled) posted it in these forums that the fix action is to:

update admin_user set password=md5('newpassword'where username='admin';

with the appropriate database selected (me, I did it in phpmyadmin)
