Using phpmyadmin and the MD5 function on the password field works on my
Joomla 1.5 installation.
Here's the SQL:
UPDATE `joomla15`.`jos_users` SET `password` = MD5( 'foobar' ) WHERE
`jos_users`.`id` =62 LIMIT 1 ;
In this case the id 62 is the admin user.

have tried several
including installing phpmyadmin and accessing the Joomla database to
change the admin password and

user. Nothing. The Joomla db
table has the Joomla user "published" flag set to 1 which is what the
web pages indicated. I tried using phpmyadmin web interface to the
Joomla db to edit admin and set the password string to a
sample hash posted on the web page. Still no change.
The most-useful web page as far as what to try was here:
Does anyone know how to get into the Joomla administration page / get
the admin UID and password to match?
