I was working on installing Magento late last night and forgot the username/pass I used for my client’s website. I saved my key though. I just didn’t write down anything else. Is there a quick way to recover it or do I need to re-install?  Thanks, Tim

You can look in the database at the “admin_user” Table to get the username you used, the password value is salted though… but maybe seeing the username will jog your memory for the password.  If not.. yeah you might have to re-install.

Note though… I wouldn’t use Magento in production yet.. you might be putting your client at risk.

For now until the user password hashing finalized we use simple md5. So to reset a user password just run on your SQL;

update `admin_user` set `password`=md5(’newpassword’) where `username`=’username’;
