Is there anyway to recover login credentials to Wordpress admin through the code somewhere?

I just tried wp-config. I'm asking because my email is not primary on the account so using 'Forgot Password' wouldn't help much as I need to get in now?

(I have FTP / Host access.)


You can do that via the database but you should
be carful and backup the database befoure any changes are done

first here is a link to md5 encoder (youll need it): MD5 Encoder

change password in the mysql

Hope this help...
